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.

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.

Nerve charging 90 bucks

6 years ago this was one of the nicest courses around well worth the 90 dollars to drive on the weekend. Now it is warn out. Fairways are all beat up some sand traps have rocks in them. Would be a decent course fore 40 dollars. They even went as far to remove the electronic gps on the carts. Good luck if you don’t have a range finder. Very disappointing. Just not the same as it used to be.

Nice Layout, Well Manicured

Colts Neck was at its best on a chilly sun drenched late November afternoon. At 6300 from the tips, the course isn’t particularly intimidating on paper, but a closer look tells a different story.

3 par 5’s on the front 9 mean par on the outbound leg is 37, two of those par 5’s clock in at 560+. The par 4’s are short, but greens are small, fast and protected by deep bunkers. The virtually treeless front 9 is protected by large fairway bunkers, while high grass and marsh lie in wait for wayward swings.
The physical character changes on the back and the layout is more parkland, with narrow fairways lined with tall trees. It also features 4 par 3’s, two of which are 225+ yard monsters.

Stow your driver on most of the par 4’s, they’re short and tempting, but trouble lurks and bad decisions are punished. This course demands discipline, but opportunities present themselves on the two short par 5’s and two short par 3’s.

Colts Neck used to private and it shows. The tee boxes and fairways are manicured, greens are fast and true if a little chewed up from traffic.
Overall a very civilized golfing experience even if the whole place seems a bit full of itself.
The gentleman in the pro shop was pleasant if somewhat condescending. The ranger had a sour attitude, urging us on somewhat rudely despite the fact that we were waiting for the foursome ahead on virtually every hole. But what would crusty old clubs be without crusty old Rangers? It did not detract from a good day of golf.
