About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 5574 yards
Slope 112
Rating 67.2

The standard 18-hole Green Tree Golf Course keeps in mind both skilled and inexperienced golfers. This public course has tight fairways lined with trees and greens of Rye Grass. The longest tees have a yardage of 5709, playing to a par of 70.

The golf course has three sets of teeboxes to provide an interesting game. There is also a driving range and practice green for beginners or those that would like some practice. The course is accessible from many major roads such as Routes 30 and 40 as well as the Atlantic City Expressway. The first shot is a difficult par-4 dogleg right that has water, bunkers, and heavy forest to look out for.

Stuck behind head pro

Took 21/2 hrs to play front nine because the head pro and his group decided that they could reach every green… Which they never did from what I witnessed he couldn’t be the head pro at a mini putt course nor does he have any sort of golf etiquette every time they pulled up to the Teebox it took them 10 minutes to tee off absolutely ridiculous walked off after 10. That was after the starter asked us to sit back because it was bothering him I guess him shooting 110 was not normal lol

Par 6 enough said

This course is very unique and I did have a great time playing, but the maintenance people were very rude while playing. Almost every tee shot was blind. There was a par 6, which is interesting. Great course to get drunk on with the guys, just don’t expect to find your balls. Also the cart path has taken more mortar fire than Afghanistan. P.S. hot dogs are $5.

Good but could be better

For the price it is definitely worth it. I like the layout there is a few short par 4s that can be reached in one but if you miss you pay the price. Pace of play was average for a morning tee time. Now for the negatives, the tee boxes were in really rough shape. Fairways were ok. When we went it was 97 degrees an they had no water on the course. Not sure if it’s because of Covid but I’ve played at courses that have water. We asked an all they said was no but we have water you can buy. I think with a little more TLC the course could be much better.

Grab at a discount

If you can grab a round for under $40 while on OC vaca, by all means play. I wouldn't be happy if I spent more than I did. 9 minutes between groups on a narrow course with jacked up T boxes is a receipt for disaster. Greens are the best around. However, plan on a few extra strokes getting there. Places just off fairways are a bit high or rock hard. Lot of just misses and you're looking for a lost ball or unwarranted trouble. Like ALL narrow Pine Barren tracks in NJ, it's not a fair round if you don't get a level start. Pitched Ts are one thing, but hitting off the surface of the moon is another.
