Not So Great

Course conditions not so great, but tropical storm did just come through. Price seems more than in past. Pace of play was clearly impeded and totally threw off game play momentum.

Wow

What a horrendous course. Can’t tell the difference between the tee box, fairway, rough or green. Needs a makeover ASAP.

Good County Course

The East course is closed so the West is getting more play. Some bare spots in the fairways but overall pretty well maintained. Tree lined fairways and the rough was high and thick so at least an extra club. The greens we're in good shape and pace was good. I'd go back especially when the East course is opened too.

Somerset County courses put this course to shame

Although I’m a resident of Middlesex County - Monmouth Junction I have not played this course in over 20 years. Having read some of the reviews I did have reservations about whether I should play here or not but I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, I have to say I will not go back there again for a very long time. The West course was the only course available being that the East Course was totally under reconstruction and closed. I would assume for the balance of 2021.
I booked my tee time within the 24 hour window so I was committed to play. We had bad thunderstorms in the area the previous night so it was Cart path only. Portions of the course were flooded and the sand traps were washed out or solid as rocks. Not one single divot hole was fixed (I put that on the staff not asking guests to help and fix them before letting them tee off). Knowing that this will be the only course available for 2021 things will only turn worst.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

I have played at about 20 golf courses across NY/NJ and this was far and away the worst. Fairways were flooded/unplayable and it didn’t even rain. Rough area/trees line filled with garbage and debris, not to mention the ticks I found on me. The icing on top was the group of four we finally decided to pass on the fifth hole, as they were playing at an 8 hour pace! Maybe if it was cheaper than the surrounding courses I would consider but this place is a mess and fairly expensive.

Course was ok

There was no one at the first tee box. People were cutting the tee times. We didn’t tee off till 4:50. People left golf carts everywhere. And pace of play was extremely slow. I play a lot of courses and this was a waste on money

Tamarack

Course is convenient but the rough grass makes it difficult to find your ball. Grass needs to be cut more often. Overall, course is recommended for practice.

Backed up

Booked to play 18, ended up playing 9. Took 2.5 hours to play 9. Pace of play not enforced. Tee time schedule very lax.
