The condition of Rail 9 was excellent. Lake 9 was a bit wet in spots, but by far the best conditions that I have played in the area this season. Played as a twosome and finish in a little one 3 hours. Pure joy!

I had heard that investments have been made to the courses and this is true. Much improved since I last played 15 years ago. Pluses: vistsa are great and the greens are in superb condition. Minuses: my Bushnell watch did not have the course in it. Some pin placements were not on plateaus. Sand in the bunkers on Lake 17 is rocky and poor. Tee shot on Lake 18 is awful. Really no landing area and cart path is practically in the fairway. That said -- enjoyed it and would play again.

Played here 3 times. All 3 times cart path only. While there were 3 or 4 holes that were wet the others were dry. Other courses will tell u for example all par threes plus holes 7 and 10 are cart path only. The same should be done here.

The amenities cart is grossly overpriced. I would rather dehydrate than pay 450 for a Gatorade and 350 for a bag of chips

The course is scenic and challenging. Rail is especially tough. Played cart path only. There were 2 pop up lakes. The amenities on the course are ridiculously high priced. Small bag of chips 3.50

Gatorade 4.50. Get real great gorge.

Having played this course for over 30 years and many different owners, they appear to be on the right track with Mountain Creek. If they could raze the old hotel and maybe have a nice "golf center" /restaurant and give it a little curb appeal, could once again be a golf destination in NJ. Course in great shape

if you don't like this you don't like golf.. cart paths need work and could use a real senior tee, maybe just on tougher holes, 375 plus par 4s bit much for most over 60 players. great value and always challenging and fun!!!

Played the Quarry and Lake Nines. Quarry was excellent and has arguably the Best Second Shots views in the State. The Lake Nine had condition issues on half the holes due to the amount or Rain, which is understandable. The Greens putted well. All in all, good value and nice to see it make a Comeback after being closed for a couple of years.
