Original Saddle Brook Stadium, 70-pole layout, gentler than the more sculptural and newer land Palmer Field, It is characterized by a more difficult green complex, but the fairway is relatively spacious.
“Palmer is well maintained and easily becomes one of my favorites,” wrote Catkins 101 In the golf consultant review in July 2020. “The greens are perfect and there is a lot to offer after your round. For this price, this is the best non-private course in the area.”
