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.

Poor managing staff

The outing started 1 hour late due to defrosting. We started from 4th hole (no one started from 1st hole, I don’t know why?), and other groups started on the 10th hole. When we got to the 10th hole, there were 5 groups ahead of us waiting on the 10th hole. Too much waiting time, I gave up only playing 6 holes. The outing arrangement was not good.

Wrestling the lawn guy

I go here often. They have done a great job this fall getting the greens back. That of course takes constant maintenance and care. This Wednesday the schedule was wide open. There was no one in front or behind us at all. Except the guy mowing the light rough around each green. Every single hole on the front 9 he was mowing it while we were waiting to approach except for 1. It seemed to be common sense for him to go forward a hole or two and then circle behind us so we could play. On most courses mowers pull to the side and let you play through... not so much here. Please try to correct this. Hoping the fairways start to come back like the greens are. Great value for the price, just dodge the lawn guy.

Nice Course

Started the day a little windy and cold then warmed up nicely. Loved this course and would recommend it to everyone that visit Atlantic City New Jersey to make it a must to play at this course. The greens are in some tuff locations and they even have a nice Par 6. Overall a great and exciting course to play .

Help! I've fallen and I can't get up

Had a tee time on for 12:05 pm 9/17/22. As usual we arrived a half hour early. I was not paying attention and when I got rung up the desk man charged all of us $38.00 instead of the $35.00 after 12 rate. He said we could go right out as there was no wait. No wonder. They are that hard up for $12.00 more he had to trick us?
Tee boxes were old pieces of cut sod that was totally dead. Some tee boxes were so bad they had temporary ones set up. There was no drinking water or any water in the ball washers. Crabgrass infested everything but the greens. The greens were super hard and burnt to a crisp. The sand traps were OK but not trimmed and some weeds were invading into them.
Pace of play was brisk as not many were playing this dump. Golf carts ran fine but they needed a good cleaning. I did not even feel like using news balls as the course gave such a low-class appearance. The one good thing was the cart paths. They must have used all of their COVID money to fix them.
It appeared they were more attentive to the wedding venue tents than to the course.
Never is a long time but I will try NEVER to return.

County course

It's a nice little coarse but conditions weren't good. The tee boxes were like hitting off a carpet with all dead sod. The fairways had little grass which was all burnt up. Crab grass everywhere. The greens were very slow with lots of dead spots. You get what you pay for.

A couple of the t boxes are in tragic condition but what do you expect for a walk on $29-45 course?
There is one guy that works there that is very aggressive and creates confrontation. The rest of the staff is chill. Book online, they often charge you a few bucks more when you book there.
Greens are really rough on a few holes but really nice on others when they are cut. Lots of amateurs out there so you can get behind some slow players at times. It could be so much more but it just isn't. Still a good value yo get in repetitions.

Be cautious

We are vacationing and wanted to get in a quick (cheap) round early in the week. We decided to go here because it fit the bill. We were charged $40 and given a senior discount only when I asked about it. We could have waited 20 minutes for a GolfNow price of $26, but paid and played. The course was in the worst condition of any course I've played in my 50+ years of playing golf. The guys in the pro shop said they were hit hard by a local drought. The conditions we saw were more than would be caused by a recent drought. Much of what we saw was from long-time neglect. Crabgrass abounds at this course, so, if you like playing on crabgrass, this is the course for you. The fringes of EVERY green were ALL crabgrass. You could not putt effectively from it and it was difficult to chip from it as well. There were NO good tees on the course. Most were in some state of repair; all had been lost from the drought or neglect. The fairways were horrendous. The majority of the fairway surface area was either dirt/sand or dead grass.

All this said, I would like to play this course if they ever get their grass back. It is a nice layout with plenty of challenges. There are lots of doglegs that require a player to use something other than driver from the tee. The greens were slow but puttable despite some damage on the greens as well. Frankly, I don't know how one would know if their conditions have improved, but I'd be willing to play again if I knew they had. Until then, $10 for a cart and golf is more than enough to pay,.

Horrible conditions

Unreal! Every tee box was destroyed, I guess they tried adding new sod, but for sod to grow, you need to water it. Definitely will not come back here again. We played with 2 other gentleman that stated 2 months ago this place was decent, I laughed. It certainly didn’t show it yesterday

Drought and water shortage - UGH

I've played this course only one month earlier and the course was in very good repair, and at the price of only $38 was a very excellent value. HOWEVER, this past week, after a month of ceasing watering the fairways and tee boxes (only watered the greens) this course was largely un-playable. It added 20 strokes to my game and cost me a few lost balls to boot. I would bet it is at least 2 years to get the course back into shape.
