course well maintained
Great course to play. Well maintained. Staff friendly. Nothing bad to say about course, it's all good.
This review has been up for 5 years only 5 more to go
Thank you, DNICE123, for the great review and feedback! We're so happy that you had a great time with us. Come and see us again soon!
This course is definitely worth it!!!
I absolutely loved this course. Even when it was freezing outside, that didn’t stop me from enjoying this beautiful links style course. The fairways were sized for the beginner type golfer but offered a challenge for the experienced golfer as well. The greens definitely challenged every putt. The bunkers were beautifully kept and the sand was very soft punishing any errant shots. I’d play this course every day!!!
Mercer Oaks West
Frost delay caused a slow start. Staff was engaging, friendly, and helpful. Course conditions were great. Beautiful fall weather was the highlight of an enjoyable round.
Why did they let this great golf course go to pot
I’ve played this course many times over the years. The conditions now are simply awful: slow, bumpy greens; little to no sand and uneven conditions in the bunkers; raggedy mowing around bunkers and hazards; and crab grass seemingly everywhere. Truly a shame. They played the State Amateur here just a few years ago and the course was pristine, but the conditions have really deteriorated. Many more public courses nearby (many Somerset and Monmouth County options come to mind) that are in much, much better shape and much better experiences overall. And to make matters worse, the group in front of us took 2:25 to play the front 9. Brutal.
Only 1 issue on Mercer West
Pace of play is excellant. Tees, fairways and greens are in great shape. Only 1 issue...the bunkers on this course are in horrible shape. Most do not have any sand. It doesn't appear that the bunkers have been worked on this year. Most still have water from the recent rains.
Great Public Course
Course was in fabulous shape. Pace of play was also great. Would definitely play here again soon.
