Can't wait to come back in the summer!
Fun course in Somerset County. I can see this being a difficult course if you find a lot of bunkers off the tees but fair if you can find fairways. Some tricky greens, too. I played this course in extremely cold weather ( low 30s) with some snow on the ground following weekend storm, but I had a ton of fun. Can't wait to play again in the Spring and Summer. Highlight of the round: saw two gorgeous bald eagles fly by after I hit a monster drive! 'Merica!
Royce Brook West
Playing golf on January 2 in the northeast is always a bonus, and while the course was understandably wet, the general conditions were very good and the greens were as good as you could possibly expect. Well worth the money.
Cold Day at Royce Brook
Cold snowy morning - had a frost delay (to be expected) Staff was friendly and accommodating until we started..keeping us posted along the way and letting us sit in the banquet area and opening for food/drink.... Course was lovely...We will be back..Thanks..
Lot of potential
Layout very nice, bunkers couldn’t be in worse condition, and the bunkers are the strength of the course.
Above average course but not worth what they charge
Had one of the first tee times of the day. Got there 15 minutes before tee time and no workers arrived until 20 minutes after our scheduled tee time. Others were arriving in the parking lot as well.
Once a worker did arrive, we were told that for the last week they weren't opening the course until 9:30-10 due to frost. They really need to stop accepting early tee times later in the year and have their workers arrive earlier. I have played here in the summer with the first tee time and the same thing happened where no workers showed up until 20 minutes after tee time. In both instances they just started sending groups out as fast as possible.
Tee boxes, fairway, rough, and greens were all in above average or even excellent shape. Bunkers were in terrible shape filled with water for most or hard if not. Hasn't rained in over a week.
Overall, they had tee times available but if you have other options you may want to look into those other options. Course is fun and good shape except the bunkers. The tavern had many drink options, wait staff was nice and quick, and food was decent.
The other Royce brook
Today was a pleasant day of golf The conditions were better than the private side. I know because I made a wrong turn and played a few hole on the west. The west was harder but the east greens were better. I played 27 holes. My score was a counting score on my handicap so I played well. The conditions contributed. To my good score because I made some putts. 50 bucks was a great value
Course was solid today. Greens were great. Bunkers are garbage. Should just fill it in with grass at this point. Like hitting off cement.
Just not worth $100. Should be 1/3 that price
Royce Brook has extremely wide fairways, but the ruff is thick & tall. The layout is interesting & challenging. My one complaint was the condition of the bunkers. There was very little sand in the traps making it difficult to play out of them. Greens rolled true with good speed.
Not in great shape
First, I really have loved Royce Brook in the past and have played it often but not recently But I spent $104 to play here on Sunday, and the course in not in great shape. I played it after the hurricane, but the conditions weren't due to the hurricane. There is zero sand in the many bunkers of the East course. If you have a course, where you highlight how many bunkers you have, why is there no sand? And we did call prior to booking to see if there was any damage, which they told us the course was unaffected. And the maintenance around the bunkers is awful. Grass that hasn;t been mowed in weeks, in some cases, 12-16 inches high. We have several balls trickle off the green, and towards the bunkers, never to be found again. Not to mention, you really can't post a score when the bunkers are unplayable, but not marked as under repair. The greens are in great shape. I would rather play down the road at Mattawang, for $45 than pay $100 for this. Or play Neshanic, a county course, nearby, which is in pristine condition, for $65 in county. Stay away until they repair this. It's a crime to charge that much for this quality.
