Length 5574 yards

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.

After a rain storm

Played after two days of a lot of rain. Lots of water on the cart paths. Greens were in great shape and fast. Fairways were in good shape.
Staff is awsome and the 19th hole is great with awsome food and beverages.

Good Value

Better than average public course, excellent value for this area, some very strange holes to figure out. Inconsistent fairways and green, 2nd and 3rd cuts of fairways were difficult to hit out of especially wen wet. Interesting marsh hazards adds uniqueness to course, sand traps few but very difficult to hit out of due to sand consistency.

Fairways are really bad

Fairways were mostly crab grass with a little good grass mixed in. Sand traps in bad condition. Greens were good but lots of ball Mark's from players that do not take the time to repair. The pictures shown are in no way representative of actual conditions. Fun layout though.

Storm affecting course conditions

It was a decent course unfortunately there was a pretty bad storm the day prior and it was cart path only but the cart path was was pretty washed out.. But the fairways had very long Grass which made it difficult to find your ball especially with it being cart path only. There are some challenging holes. I’d go back once the conditions of the course improved. The staff was very friendly. I’d recommend.

Slow

I enjoy coming to Greentree. I feel it is unique in that it has a par 6 hole, it is wooded but not too narrow and the par 3 holes are short & great for wedges. With that said, it is a slow course. There was no ranger and people were just teeing off one after another. 5 hours is way too long to get through a course. Tee boxes were in rough shape too. I realize that it is a county course so there can’t be as big of a budget as a private course, but it could be mowed more often than it has been. All in all, I would continue to put it in the rotation.

Ok for hackers

For the price ($42) it really is not a bad deal and is a good spot for beginners. Just don’t expect lush manicured fairways or nice tee boxes. The greens were not half bad. It’s an interesting layout, as I’ve never seen a Par 6... It is what it is, a decent cheap full 18 hole course.

Bad shape

On a positive note, the greens were nice. Nothing else was. Fairways were mostly weeds and tees were spotty. The course is too short but tight. If you are not straight, you are in trouble. No ranger on the course keeping the pace steady was a problem with the slow group in front of us.
