Length 6443 yards
Slope 125
Rating 70.8

Green Knoll Golf Course in Bridgewater Township has a varied terrain that provides a unique character to the course. The course sprawls across gently rolling hills dappled with mature trees. Much of the course's challenges are a result of the tricky contours. Some of the elevation changes are dramatic but there are also some subtle ones, which can be just as tricky. Further accuracy is required to maneuver the tight fairways. There are definitely challenges in store throughout but overall the golf course's playability appeals to all skill levels, from novices to avid golfers. It measures a manageable 6,443 yards from the back tees. In addition to the 18-hole course, there is also a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course. Green Knoll is one of five golf courses operated by the Somerset County Park Commission.

Love this course!

I have been playing here for over 15 years since high school and the course is always in great condition! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It has a great layout and some holes are quite difficult that especially with the rolling hills throughout the course, we came to name it the beast

Beautiful course

Amazing and beautiful course but just sucks that tee times are 10 minutes apart. Each hole you wait at the tee box, then again before four second shot

Golfers vs People who Play Golf

People who play golf see the weather report or peer out of their windows, and see a chilly grey drizzle and skip the trip to the course.
Gofers make a beeline to their favorite muni knowing they’ll have the run of the joint.
This was that day at Green Knoll, a Somerset county parks gem, playing way longer than the 6443 yds advertised on the card, on a day when the rough is soaked, the fairways glistening under a misty drizzle and the greens producing rooster tails on long putts.
Those greens are small, true and fast, despite the conditions, hard to hold and decidedly dicey when above the hole.
Course was in terrific shape. It gives the player no shortage of decisions to make. Doglegs and elevation changes force you to play strategically, and if you don’t , and I often didn’t , you’re staring double bogey in the face.
Your chipping game better be on point, the little greens are easy to miss, often raised and protected with bunkers and thick rough.
The best part is there’s nary a house to be seen. It’s a parkland layout with marshy and wild areas that make for a great walk. On this day we saw plenty of deer including a 10 point buck.
Great layout, great shape, great day out.

Old & Experienced

My First round of gplf was summer of 1965at Green Knoll. Now 55 years later this course os old & experienced.
That is a great quality.
The course is better now than ever before. Fairways, greens, rough, and tees are in great shape.
Personally I think #8 & #15 are the 2 best holes out there. Greens rolled great, true, and excellent shape

Reasonably priced, get out and play here

Fun, good walking course

This course is a lot of fun. Many hole requires thinking ahead about where to put your tee shot so you have a clear shot for the green with your second shot and many green require being smart about where you hit your approach, especially 5, 6 and 8 because of water. Many teeshots are blind, so it helps to play with someone who's played the course before. Bugs are an issue so bring spray or do what I do a smoke a big fat cigar!

Easy walking and fast play

The bugs made it a miserable round. Even the insect repellent didn’t work.
If you can live with being eaten by bugs then book it.
Otherwise stay away.
