Yards: 5832, Par 71 (White Tees)
Course Architect: Alex Findlay
Built/Open: 1929
Website: http://www.medfordlakescountryclub.com/

Date: August 18, 2009


I played Medford Lakes Country Club, a private club located in Medford Lakes, my wife’s family were members of the club for over 30 years. I have gone to the range once a week with my kids, so I really can not consider that practice. I arrived 5 minutes before our tee time (as usual) and rushed around getting to the pro shop and then out to the first tee (10 Tee). I shot an 18 hole score of 102 on an extremely hot, sunny day in the high 90’s with 1 par, hitting 5 fairways, 1 green in regulation and lost 5 balls. My driving was bad the first nine and got better on the back nine. My mid and short iron game was average, I chunked a few due to lack of practice. My putting was pretty good, one - 3 putt, three – 1 putts on the dry / fast greens which were baking in the sun. All in all, it was a nice day out playing a new course even if the wheels fell off the last few holes.

FROM THE WEB SITE: In the late 1920s, Medford Lakes was a vacation community in the New Jersey pines, some 18 miles southeast of Camden. One of its prominent citizens, Leon Todd, believed that a golf course was needed in order to provide residents and summer visitors with a complete range of recreational and sporting opportunities. In 1929 the Medford Lakes Development Company acquired the 115-acre Shrider farm. Alex Findlay, scarcely an unknown quantity in southern New Jersey, was brought in to lay out nine holes. His skillful use of both water and trees gave the course, though on the short side and with few changes in elevation, both interest and charm.

COURSE CONDITION: The teeing areas were lush green, the fairways were cut short and the ball was running on the fairways. The rough was either 2 to 3 inches high which was difficult to get the ball out of, but not impossible. The greens looked relatively flat, but slight un-noticeable undulations had the ball moving all over the fast, dry greens.

FACILITIES: MLCC provides practice facilities (driving range, putting and chipping greens), dinning, and pro shop. I didn’t get to utilize the facilities, maybe next time.

SHOT (HOLE) OF THE DAY: None, played like crap!

SUGGESTIONS AND COMMENTS: This course is an older traditional course. Little short and a few holes are tight, but the bunkers and water hazards are well placed.

GOLFNERDNESS: Real nice course, didn’t like teeing off on 10 to start the round.

GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT: Keep an eye on the hole layouts, there are water hazards in some un-expecting locations.
