Great bang for your buck

For what it is, gamblers ridge is a good course. the fairways and most tee boxes were in decent shape. Bunkers were also in pretty good shape and most of them had more than adequate sand. It is evident that they are making cosmetic changes, such as painting the fences on the course from red to green. My only complaint about gamblers ridge is the greens. They are slow and bumpy. This appears to be due to a lack of mowing and no rolling. Other than the speed and consistency of the greens, I believe that gamblers ridge is a great course for the money, especially if you walk.

Can’t beat the price!

Good layout! Challenging! The price you can’t beat with really good conditions. Well maintained. I’ve paid a lot more to play on some beat up courses so you can’t go wrong here. Play it see for yourself

Potentially terrific

Gamblers Ridge is a terrific property on the rolling farm and marshland of Monmouth County. The layout is fantastic. It features tight fairways lined with trees, elevation changes and several doglegs. Greens are small, well guarded, sloping from back to front and slow. It’s an interesting layout over a beautiful piece of land, which was emphasized with a lingering fog and trees ablaze as peak foliage painted the central Jersey landscape on this early November morning.
And there was plenty of time to enjoy the vistas because the pace of play was excruciatingly slow. And the course wasn’t terribly crowded. 4 hours 45 minutes for a 9:20 am start time on a weekday is ridiculous.
The course is not in great shape. Many of teeboxes were moved up, and not in the best nick. Fairways were patchy. Greens, far too slow, and a clientele that doesn’t believe in repairing ball marks.
This is a terrific venue that is batting well below it’s average. Something must be done about pace of play, and course conditions aren’t up to par, although in defense of the staff, this course gets a ton of traffic because of its location, and it’s manageable length and layout. They dumb it down to keep up the pace of play but apparently it’s not working, I say put the tees back, rollout those greens, put the teeth back into this beautiful spot, and send the slow hackers packing.
