Review: Alright, so I went here hoping and praying that this field would be better than FBM's Old Bridge field. Turns out, it's a lot better. Most importantly, the safety was much better, though not perfect. The ref's were on top of everyone there, reminding people about a mask here, a barrel condom there, but they really were indifferent about repeat offenders. They also made sure there was no shooting and/or dry firing going on in the dead zones, at least for most of the day. Towards the end, they got fed up and stopped bothering when one group wouldn't stop. Still better than Old Bridge. One thumb up for safety.

On to the fields themselves. There are a whole bunch, one airball, one hyperball, and the rest (mabye 4 or 5) woods. Overall, well designed and maintained, although I should mention that I saw one part of a bunker that had fallen over with nails sticking out. One course featured a 2-story, 2-towered "castle," which isn't something you see everywhere. So the courses were pretty varied, good size, another thumbs up. The dead zone is quite nice, also, with woodchips and plenty of picnic tables.

Price for walk-ons with their own equipment is $30, a bit higher than average, but an all-day CO2 pass is only $3, and air fills are included. BYOP is your wallet's best friend, though.

They have a system where you can get general admission for $30 or speedball only for $15, another cool feature that you don't see elsewhere. One thing I didn't like was the system for filling tanks. It looked like air fills were do-it-yourself, and the CO2 fill station didn't have a scale or anything, so you don't get a complete fill. Or worse, they over-filled, which is potentially dangerous.

To summarize, decent safety, nice fields, a few little problems, but nothing really bad. I'll be playing here again. 7/10. Note that I cut a point after my second visit, for less-than-zealous attention to safety details.
