Type Semi-Private
Par 70
Length 5840 yards
Slope 124
Rating 68.2

Hillsborough Country Club is tucked away amongst the foothills of the Sourland Mountains. The golf course overlooks the beautiful Amwell Valley, sprawling across lush rolling hills gently sprinkled with mature trees. The par-70 layout is player friendly enough for all skill levels, it is even gentle enough for beginners. While it may not be what you're looking for if you want a long and challenging test, it's great for a casual round with a few tricky surprises. Accuracy will be generously rewarded but the golf course isn't overly punishing if you're slightly errant. Golfers will come across a fair amount of strategically placed sand traps as well as the occasional water hazard. In addition to the course, you can get even more short game practice in on Hillsborough Country Club's practice chipping and putting greens and there is also a driving range available.

Some rough spots

The bunkers are horrendous. Rock hard mud in most.
One shouldn’t play out of what used to be sand.
Cart paths are broken and bumpy.
The good news.. greens and fairways were in ok shape

Must Be New Ownershio

Simply this course is not run like it was in the passed. Really disappointed. Condition has gone down hill. Even for the 45 dollars it's not worth it.

Would not recommend

Challenging layout but not in a good way, seems like this course was just dropped on some old farmland. Lots of strange holes where good shots wind up punished. Conditions were not great as it seems the drainage is poor. Extremely overpriced for what you get.

Yikes

Honestly, I don’t know what I expected, but man, this wasn’t it. I’ve played a few other courses in the area at similar price points - but wow - this was just a mess.

You can tell that at one time, this was a pretty nice track. And upon seeing the dilapidated buildings and disheveled hedgework at the entryway, I was cautiously optimistic that all the care was being applied to the playing surfaces and the course itself - rather than some of the cosmetic club amenities.

Unfortunately, my optimism was unfounded and unsubstantiated. I don’t have a problem with playing a challenging course with thicker rough. But this rough was wayward and accidental - haphazardly grown because - who knows? Perhaps the Cub Cadet was out of commission? For the past several weeks?

Poorly manicured, poor drainage, and tee boxes that looked like they’d been rattled by mortar shells were as populous as the dandelions scattering every “fairway.”

Hacker

More like a cow pasture. If you didn’t hit the fairway, you lost your ball in the 6 inches or more of rough and or in the woods. Interesting course layout with doglegs and hills. A long drivers course only on par fives other holes to narrow, you have to hit everything straight or you lost your ball.

Interesting Layout, Poor Conditions

Cheap round, but you get what you pay for, tee boxes were mangled, and bunkers, if you can even call them that, are unplayable.
