The front and back nine are different in character; while the front is more open the back features uphill and downhill lies. Tee off on #12 uphill—the fairway is lined with apple trees and your approach shot is an iron to the double tiered green.
The signature hole is the 17th, a par six, 650 yards from the blue tees, a downhill dogleg plays down the mountain and offers an exciting tee shot, but you must stay away from the woods on the right. You will get roll but you must be accurate to avoid the large tree right at the dogleg. It was once the site of the ski slope and was listed as "one of the 18 most perfect holes in New Jersey" – N.J. Monthly Magazine. The final four holes are the toughest in the state and if you par them all – you've played extremely well. On #18 you are faced with a decision to go for the green or lay up and hit your second shot across the 80 foot pond. It can make or break your day.
