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 course

Traveled about an hour to play here for the first time. It was definitely worth the drive. $45 walking was a great price and a much better course than what you get where I live in Bergen County. Staff was friendly and course was in great shape. Definitely will come.e back.

Greens aerated, not told

Fairways were fine, but the greens were bad, and I was not told when I booked that greens were recently aerated, or at least appeared to be. Pace for most of the round was slow due to a slow two-some in front of our group, but ranger comes by and blames us for the slow play. Only real positive I can give it us the course layout, and even then, it's mainly for the front 9. The back 9 is inferior to the front 9, and it has one of my biggest pet peeves, and that's having a Par 3 finishing hole. You don't end the round on a Par 3, and I hate it when courses do this. I recognize this is a personal thing, but it's one that I can't wrap my head around.

A good option

Since moving to the area I've played here 4 times. So far I usher had an issue. The guys behind the counter have been on punt, quick about it and generally Knowledgeable regarding who's teeing off and what is going on. I mention this bc plenty of times at courses there is chaos, no communication etc. Though it's not asking much, having reliable people behind the counter is enough to keep me coming back

The course is always well maintained but to charge 90 dollars a round for air raided greens is a bit much

Just OK

Course is ok. Short par 70 even from the tips. Snack bar at the turn isn’t open and the cart that goes around is cash only. Due to its semi private nature many of the amenities are members only.

Not a difficult course, very manageable.

Course layout is nice. You can see your target 98% of the time. Nice fairways for end of March, real nice greens. On a good day I can shoot even par here and I’m a 8 hcpper.. Has a driving range to blow some time if you get there early , like I always do. Also has a chipping green up next to #1 green. Small bucket of balls was 9 bucks, a bit extreme. Overall a real nice course for 68 bucks but not a 100 dollar course.
