American golf should be ashamed

Terrible tee boxes and sand traps. Tee’d off 35 minutes after my tee time. Course overcrowded, golf carts falling apart(had to switch carts 3 times). No rangers moving groups. Large gaps between groups. No body working on the course.

Save your $

Think everyone knows SS is garbage but just a reminder it still is. I play there in the beginning of the year and it was in terrible shape and is still is.i just don't see them doing anything to improve. You talk to the staff and they tell you course get a lot of play but so do all the other courses in NJ and there a 100x better. The in the end just want you $$$. So don't give it to them

Needs a Bit O Work

Weather conditions were perfect; however, the tee boxes were far from perfect. Very hard, dry, and difficult to set a tee. Fairways were in pretty good shape. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They are however in dire need of a course ranger to ride around and speed up the pace of play. IDC if you're a regular, ambassador, or newbie. Keep it moving, limit your practice swings to under a dozen (lol)....That said it was an enjoyable day....I would go back..Hopefully they get a ranger by then....I recommend.

Dirt Tee Box’s. 20 min holes.

Wasn’t my first time playing but it has been over a year since I’ve been here. I don’t remember the tee boxes being in such poor conditions. They’re Complete dirt. The blues weren’t as bad so we just went to wherever we could find some grass to plant your feet. It took us an hour to finish the 3rd hole. We had a 7:20 tee time, we finished the 3rd hole at 815. The pace was horrible. I’m just hoping it’s a bad time of the year for the course. The greens were in decent shape, sand boxes were solid dirt, fairways were fine. If you were in a dirt patch just move your ball back to the nearest grass.

Tee boxes and greens

The course is my favorite course for many reasons. The tee boxes and the greens need major work done. Idk how people can be expected to pay $60 on a weekday and $100 on a weekend to play in these conditions. Have to either bless your golfers with a price reduction or keep the course at an immaculate level. This is coming from a golfer who loves SS.

Needs investment in revitalization

This course requires an investment to revitalize it. Tee boxes and greens especially on back 9 infested with sand hornets. Some trees need to be trimmed back. Golf carts are near end of life. Short course. Price reflects a course for this difficulty level should be near pristine condition

Needs major overhaul

Course requires a ton of investment to get it where it needs to be. It’s inundated with sand hornets especially on the back 9 greens. Tee boxes are in poor shape. Golf carts are showing their age. For the price they continue to charge it should be in better shape
