Colts Neck Golf Club is one of central New Jersey's most popular courses. The diverse course offers everything from Scottish-style bunkers to sparkling lakes. Tall golden fescue rough borders the fairways and the greens are large and undulating. The course is seemingly short at only 6,236 yards but it shouldn't be taken lightly. It's much more challenging than it appears. The layout finishes with two of its toughest holes. The 17th has a tough green fiercely guarded by out-of-bounds and the course saved the most difficult hole for last. This par 3 will test even the most seasoned golfers. In addition to the golf course, Colts Neck also has a 25-station driving range that stays open late. It's a great spot for getting in some practice after work.

Great round of golf

Playing for the first time in 7 or 8 years, pleasantly surprised by the course condition this time of the year. Very well maintained fairways, bunkers and greens. The pace of play was excellent (4 hour round!!).

Amazing course for an amazing price!!!

This course honestly blew me away. The staff was very professional and courteous. The course was in amazing condition for the fall and had beautiful views throughout each hole. It was a great test as it offers big risk/big reward type shots. The ratio of 3s, 4s and 5s gives you the perfect balance of length and playability. I will definitely be visiting again!!!

Nice layout, good greens, too many temporary tee boxes, no customer service

Although the layout was nice and the greens were in good shape. The round was slow it took over 4:30. The back 9 had too many temporary tee boxes having you tee oof in the mud. The fairways had been recently aerated as well.
Also, my cart started having problems on hole 13. I could not go up even a slight incline. I called the pro shop and was told that someone would meet me at hole 14 to switch carts. No one came out and I had to pushed the remainder of the round by my playing partners anytime I had an incline.

For the price I paid for this green fee this is unacceptable . I would not recommend this course at this time.

Great Layout, Bad Condition + Unpleasant Staff

The course layout is great - no complaints there. However, there were multiple temporary tee boxes which made some par 5's essentially par 4's, the greens had recently been punched and this information was nowhere to be found on their website, and some of the greens were in pretty awful condition outside of the aerifying. On top of this all, the starter was completely unpleasant. I showed up right on time for my tee time, but the starter insisted I was late and gave me a hard time for no reason, starting my round in a very unpleasant manner. This was the third time I've been here; the second time was great, but the first time I experienced a somewhat similar issue except with the person in the pro shop. Seems like customer service is not a priority here at all, and when the conditions are average at best like they were today, I don't see any reason to come here. I made the mistake of associating "semi-private" with great quality / a great experience overall, but I learned my lesson and will take my money elsewhere.

Love this course. It is typically in great shape. Last time and this time I played, Tee boxes in bad shape. 3 or 4 Tee boxes were closed and temps move way forward. I understand this needs to be done as they were redoing the Tee boxes. However, to charge $100 is a crime when in this condition.
