Not a bad place, played it for the first time at winter rates ($70 walking) and to be honest that could be a year round price, its not worth much more or any better than Royce Brook, Berkshire Valley or some of the other courses in the resort its linked with. Pace of play was great but that was because of the time of year and the fact only 9 other players were out on the course at the time. Very cold day but that did not spoil the fun. Everything was in great shape, fairway to green. A very fair course and not as hard to play as I thought, will go back now I know its layout though not during the expensive months. The one person on duty was as accommodating as one could be, sending us out on the back while the other foursome went out the front.

One of my favorite courses in NJ although it is a little on the pricey side. Greens are top notch and when the tall grass is up it makes for a difficult course visually. Definitely worth playing at least once.

Ballyowen is a more upscale course design then many North Jersey Courses, I liked it the best of the Crystal Springs courses, But course conditions did not warrant the rack rate price they charge. That's why it took almost 10 years to play it. Its both challenging and fair. I liked that fairways are not just straight and narrow, but almost sculpted. Enjoyed my round, but think Berkshire Valley is somewhat comparable and alot less expensive.

finally got to play this place. Its rad but I dont understand how people would pay 135 bucks to play golf. This.isnt.aspen.
super twilight rate is where its at, if you have the rewards card.
Played blues, which scared me, being my 2nd yr, but i did well considering and kept up with everyone else :). Fun, challenging stuff.

  weitzj - 6/12/12
Course was in just perfect condition, Smooth very fast greens... Go play it..!

a fair test with challenging terrain. Greens were not in the best condition; no long fescue as late November special drove us from south eastern Nassau County. Would like to give it a second shot in peak season.

Would consider buying partial membership if not for the travel time.

BTW the bagpipes and hospitality ARE a treat.
