Type Public
Par 71
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.

Course was in good shape and nice scenery. Say many deer and foxes. Fairly flat course and open, but many greens are sloping which creates challenges. Staff is very friendly and pace of ply for 18 holes was 415 for a Thursday. Best to bring a snack or drink as amenities are limited to a snack and soda vending machine.

Green Knoll

Somerset County has done an AMAZING job with their golf courses. Amazing. They had invested little time or maintenance in them for decades but since COVID, they are among the nicest public courses I've seen anywhere in the country. When you play Green Knoll, bring A LOT of golf balls, 50 should get you through 18. Once the ball misses the fairway and goes in only 20 yards wide, you are in a mass of thick, impenetrable, impossible grass and 10 out of 10 times, you're never finding your ball. Course is in good shape, starter was excellent but no real amenities at the turn so if you're playing on a hot day, come prepared.

friendly, accomodating

having a happy fun starter gives the round a fun start.. many pins are out of sight. narrow fairways, high rough makes this a challenging course. Oh yeah, there's plenty of streams and natural grass area that attracts wonderful wildlife.
