White Oaks Country Club is carved from the mature pinelands of Newfield in south Jersey. Towering oak trees frame the golf course, separating each hole and giving each one a secluded feel. There are several challenges in store on this layout including massive strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, but it is also forgiving enough to accommodate beginners. The golf course does not have just one hole that it considers its signature but in fact, multiple holes. There is the par-5 seventh which stretches to a monstrous 621 yards and the par-4 ninth features a tricky second shot over water to a double green. These two challenging holes take advantage of the landscape's natural contours. The 17th is yet another signature hole, it has been voted the "toughest par 3 in South Jersey."

How to make things right??

White Oaks responded to my last review (course is UNPLAYABLE at best) saying to please reach out so “we can make things right”.

I’m happy to reach out, however, no email address to respond to, or directive to follow?

I’m hoping this is an actual request and not a simple way to dismiss my warning to other golfers?

NJ best kept secret

The staff are awesome! The one and only negative was the greens conditions. They were in rough shape. Aside from the greens the rest of the course was very nice.

COVID has to be the reason

This course has gone down hill fast. COVID?-
The course got it.
When other courses like Centerton and Pinelands are getting better this course unfortunately is lacking proper upkeep. Even paying $12 (discounted) was disappointing. They had an outing before our round and every green had ball marks which didn’t help with what little green was actually on the green. Par 3 12th fairway was yellow? Once the COVID is over hopefully not will improve.

"worth" the money

Wild to see that the course could be so burnt out, but also sloppy wet. Greens/fairways were scorched, there isn't even sand available on the tee boxes(which are pummeled). Pretty sad to see the refreshments finish around 2pm and the bar is closed after like 3, because a bottle of water would have been nice.

Disgrace

What a disgrace. This use to be one of my favorite courses. Challenging layout cut right out of the south jersey pines.

Course was in terrible shape. Worst course I have played this year except perhaps Centerton!. Every green was horrible, fairways of crabgrass/dirt, rock hard stonebunkers, tee boxes littered with broken tees. And the worst part, aside from the huge chunk missing from the driver's seat, our cart was filthy! Someones beverage was spilled all over the console from who knows when!!?? Buy a pressure washer!!!

Owners (not management) better get to that course before it goes the way of Becket. Maybe that's the plan.

Losing the greens

Greens burnt out. Weeds growing on greens. Fairways patchy burnt areas also. Not planning on returning anytime soon. Also never have drinking water out. How hard is it to maintain water stations on course. Done here.

$29 round with cart

Knew something was up - it’s never this cheap especially summer time. True enough , greens and fairways were terrible. But can’t complain - got my fix at $29. I wouldn’t pay more than that though.

What’s up ? lack of personnel ? Funds? I’ve played courses like these when they are about to go bankrupt and eventually close.

Hot weather

The greens on the front nine were in poor condition and while there had been heavy rain 2 days before, nearly all of the traps were like lakes with no visible efforts made to drain them. This is not a difficult course and you should be able to play this course in under 4 hours, however we had 3 groups in front of us that did not play "ready golf" and were terribly slow.. What should have been a pleasant round turned into a 5 hour slog around the course.

This course has poor conditions

I haven’t played this course in years and part of my foursome drive over an hour since the live near King of Prussia Pa . We weekly play various courses in Nj, Pa , DE . This course is by far the worst we’ve played , tee boxes really poor , greens are the worst we’ve seen (crab grass / missing grass ) and on most greens , my Pa playing partners don’t want to come to Jersey to play now because of this place . On a good note , the layout is really nice and the starter outside and the guy the cleans your clubs are top notch in addition to the beautiful restaurant and pro shop .

Slow:leaks:burn

For starters the men’s and ladies rooms were closed due to a leak. We were behind a foursome that was below average players who did not have the courtesy to allow a twosome through. Most of the greens either had a fungus but appear to be burnt and difficult to put from. I play this course regularly and was highly disappointed
