Nice round with my son
Loved this course. Obviously shorter holes but nice layout. Friendly staff. A snack bar or beverage cart would be a nice addition.
I played the par 33 Academy Course and really enjoyed the layout and landscape.
I came away with great impressions and the plan to return to play the 27 hole setup on the rest of the property.
Top quality 👌
I only played the par 32 academy course, but I could tell this place is a jewel.
Aerated greens meant it wasn't a low scoring affair, but I look forward to exploring the entire property eventually.
Conditions were okay-big issue was ball marks on the 7 greens we played, why 7, because it took 2.5 hours to play 7 holes!!! Its a short course which was what I wanted for practice, but the pace of play was horrible....may give it a go once school starts and there are less people playing....for a point of reference I played at 10:50 on a Friday of a holiday weekend, was $25 excluding the GN booking fees.
Had a great day at the Academy course. Excellent facility to introduce my grandson to his first round of real golf after several lessons at the driving range. The course is 9 holes which proved to be the right amount of golf. Would recommend this facility to everyone wanting to play with a new golfer.
Great quick round
Excellent layout for a quick 9. Played with 2 friends, none of us are making the Tour anytime soon, but we played well enough that even walking we wrapped the round in about 1h 35m. 6pm tee time when the weather was great. Only issue was that the stop cart rentals with the 530pm tee times. Understandable given the maintenance hours, just wish I had seen that earlier.
Pace of play
The slow pace of play is a real problem. This is the second time we played recently and both 9 hole rounds took well over two hours. That would be at best normal at a regulation course, but this course should have a pace of play at about 1:30 to 1:45. There was no apparent effort either by signs, reminders or even an occasional course ranger to keep people moving. At a minimum, when people check in they should be advised what the expected pace of play should be. 10-12 minutes per hole should be plenty of time.
Good practice round
Good place to work on your game. $25 is a little pricey for this place if you don't live in Somerset County. But you can usually get a quick none in here in about 11/2 hours if not too crowded
