Easy and Fun
I too learned to golf on this course and shot my first under par score here. All the par 3's, which is almost every hole, require no more then a pitching wedge or at most a 9 iron but great holes to fine tune your short game. Its great to see a golf course charging a green fee of $25 these days. I live in north Jersey now and can't touch a course for under $100. I'd love to play this course again some day. FYI, for you long hitters, the 18th is very reachable in one shot.
i rate this course a little higher then i probably should because this is a special place to me. i learned to play golf on this course and that is probably why i have the bad habits that i have today. i am a member of white oaks c.c. in newfield but i still am drawn back to eastlyn.it is a short par three to which only one word can explain. FUN! many holes are pitching wedge or nine iron off the tee which puts many of your first shots near the pin. the course itself is like walking thru a park. if it werent 28 degrees right now i wouldent mind playing the course today. if you are a beginner this is realy a good place to play..there are zero holes which are overbearing visualy..i believe that the longest hole is around 350yds. most holes are easy to manage. eastlyn is also a wonderful course to play after work. it doesnt take four and a half hours to play and it is affordable.. great place to play with a buddy and have lunch and a drink in a very nice club house facility. if your looking for a fun golf experience with good ammenities, go to eastlyn..
Short course, good warmup for the season or a good course to stay limber. Great for tuning the short game. Well-kept fairways and greens, not a lot of water or sand. Keep the driver in your bag until the 18th hole. Nice short course good for walking. Also a great value at $15 weekdays.
Short game tuner
Want to improve your short game? This is your course.Not too much difficulty, but again good for the short game.I rate this course higher than the actuall playing conditions warrant because I enjoy playing here. However, if you enjoy a good meal and a drink after playing you won't get it....IT WILL BE EXCELLENT....The chef, and yes that what he should be called,is very good. Better,in fact,than some finer courses I have played. It's worth the greens fees,which are very low, just to come and eat.
