“The oldest public course in New Jersey, Weequahic was built in 1913 by Baltusrol's then-pro George Low. A classic, well-routed muni, Weequahic is quite short at just over 5700 yards, but makes up for it with tight fairways, plenty of undulation, and small greens. The course is one of three classic courses in Essex County's municipal system along with Hendricks Field and Francis Byrne. All three are worthy of a play for visitors to Newark or NYC."

“The state’s first public course is still perhaps the best bargain in the NYC area. For about $30, nonresidents can enjoy a nice, rolling layout designed originally by George Low, the original club pro from Baltusrol, who was responsible for their old island-green par 4 (now the 16th on the Lower). Played in March so can’t comment on peak-season conditions — but it met expectations, and there are some fun holes with interesting greens. Not a huge penalty for wayward shots with a lot of fairways running next to another hole."
