Good all around

From tee boxes, to the (wet) fairways, to the greens, the course was in decent shape for mid December - cart path only, which was totally understood, yet the pace was spot on & the $27 hot deal was really a special price - would’ve been happy paying $40-50, if we had

Fun Day

Enjoyed playing the course. Plays fairly short and was saturated in some areas even though it hadn’t rained in a couple of days. I like that they always have someone at the golf cart location organizing starting times. Friendly staff.

Fall golf at it's best

Great afternoon on the course. A nice relaxing atmosphere. The course is in great shape, the staff was busy blowing leaves and grooming the course. I would recommend this course to anyone. it is a scoring friendly course. We usually look for a deal to play this course.

Fall Golf

The course was in very good shape. Especially since it rained heavily for two days prior to us playing.
This course is always in great shape. Can’t wait to go back in the spring.

Not Good

Average course at best all around. I would have given this a worse review had I paid more than $39 for my round. I booked a 3pm tee time so the rate was cheaper. I would absolutely not recommend paying more than that. $74 for a morning tee time is absolutely insane. I would have asked for money back if I paid that rate.

I arrived early and paid my greens fees and was then told to hurry up and tee off as a women's league was starting behind me. This was 15 mins before my scheduled tee time? I don't know why they booked me for that time slot if a league was starting at about the same time. I didn't get to warm up or even hit a putt on the practice green which I came early to do. By hole 3 the twosome behind me jumped up with me because pace of play was so slow.

Course layout is pretty basic. Not much to a lot of the holes, straight par 4s and 5s for the most part. You drive back and forth thru a housing plan throughout the round. Conditions were ok for Sept, not great at all. Tee boxes were in bad shape, greens were ok but painfully slow.

Overall, I probably wouldn't come back or recommend this course to anyone and certainly wouldn't pay what they're charging. $94 in the summer is absolutely insane, for that price you should be getting a very well kept and laid out course and that is very much not the case here.

Had.a wonderful round

Nice course located in the center of the vacation area of the Jersey Shore. Love the layout but the course needs help. Lots of bare spots on the fairways. Greens also need some help. The greens are large and run true.

Always enjoy playing this course.

Great Day of Golf

I went out as a single but joined another group at the second hole. What nice folks! I had the best game of golf. It was a beautiful day and the course was in good shape. They had recently aerated the greens , but the rest of the course was in great shape.

Good bang for your buck

This course seemed to be on the lower end price wise compared to other courses around. I’m new to the sport so my courses to compare to are limited but the course had a far amount of distance to it compared to my courses in Virginia greens were worn but to be expected based on this point in the season. Definitely plan to come back whenever my next vacation weekend is.

Terrible course conditions

Tee-box have no grass or uncut grass, sand traps have 4 inch water from Friday's rain today is Sunday. The traps were never drained and forget about sand in the bunkers its all mud. The fairways are terrible a lot of mud burnt grass from too much fertilizer. I played a lot of courses this is a ZERO from 1 to 10. I am sure it is up for sale because they sure are not spending any money to maintain it. AVOID AVOID.

Just all around terrible

I had time to create a golf advisor account and write this review and had 10 minutes to spare waiting for a hole. Legit waited about 15-20 minutes on every hole. Not to mention this course is also in poor condition. Some of the tee boxes are actual dirt. The fact that I paid $70 for this round makes me feel like I got completely ripped off. I will never come back here again.

GolfNow screwed up

For the first time I used Golfnow to make a teatime at this golf course. Only to show up ready to play to be told by the course but there was no teatime available, golf now does not update their listings or coordinate with the course itself! This is the first and last time I will golf now.
