Excellent layout and in great condition

The staff was incredible, the carts are amazing with the GPS, and the ranger really made an effort to speed up the play ahead of us even though no one in my group was complaining. It’s a fun and challenging course that’s been improving more and more each time I play.

Much better…

They are really putting in the work… the course layout is very good. As you would Expect from an A.W. Tilinghast. Although it is extremely flat and wide open, the bunkering adds the challenge. Green complexes are also reminiscent if you have played his designs before.

Played in three hours. You can tell as more and more work is complete this course will be in great shape.

Will def play again.

Fairways condition was poor. At half the price, Monmouth County courses and condition are superior to Suneagles.

Historic and wonderful layout!

I liked playing this course a lot and played it for my golf buddies to see if it would be something that they wold like to travel to to play. I found that the three holes or so made returning not a good choice for me because the design was ruined by the changes.

A little shaggy

We’ve had so much rain that the course was a little shaggy. Greens were perfect. Because of the rain the course was wet and soft. I’ll play again

First timer

Decent golf course but greens were too slow, even downhill. Pace of play was a big problem. Three holes open for group in front of us at turn. Called rangers and they tried to get them to move faster but not significantly improved over back nine. 4.5 hours on a Tuesday AM is too long on this course (not especially hard). Should have had the group skip one or two holes to get everyone moving again.

Will give them one more chance before recommending.

Tillinghast would be ashamed

"I maintain that the Suneagles Course ranks among the best of my creations." A.W. Tillinghast

This is the quote on the front of their scorecard, but if he were alive to see it now, he would be aghast at what it has become. I don't think I've ever given a course 1 star until now, but this one earned it.

I pull up and it's clear there is a lot of construction and work going on, but there is absolutely no signage to help direct traffic coming in, had no idea where I was going at first. You might think that the construction is going into making the course better, and you'd be wrong, it's going into the clubhouse/concert venue. Yeah, a concert venue, on a golf course. Because I love hearing the noise of guitars and drums of the soundcheck while I'm teeing off or in the middle of my shot, absolutely brilliant. Totally not a desperation move from management to try and get more people in.

Go to the clubhouse and check in, asked how much a bucket of balls is, and the price tag is $15. It's not even a decent driving range, it's one net in the back and no side netting, and it's adjacent to the 1st and 18th holes, so if you're playing, you run the extreme risk of getting hit from someone on the range (which I almost did). And $15 for a bucket, I've never seen range balls priced that high. Their putting green is small and definitely not meant to handle huge crowds.

I walk up to the 1st tee about 15 minutes early for my 11:40 tee time and meet my playing partner. The group scheduled in front of us is nowhere to be found. Instead of letting me and my partner out, the starter forces us to wait. It is now, 11:40, I'm lined up and about to hit my ball, when the starter stops me, the 11:30 tee time just got here and he puts them in front of us. I'm sorry, excuse me?! I was here on time, as was my partner, they were late, they do not get to go in front of us, especially when I'm in the middle of my setup. So now we are forced to go out late, and when I told the starter this, he was completely rude and shrugged it off.

But now the actual course, it was in awful condition. Dry patches, poorly maintained bunkers, geese poop litters the course, and the aforementioned construction. When it wasn't the soundcheck people, it was the loud, heavy duty equipment interrupting my shot, and it could be heard throughout the entire course. And that late group in front of us was slow, so poor pace of play as well.

Bad experience, bad course, will not be spending my money here again. And the funny thing, my playing partner was a local, and said the course is in much better shape than it has been. Wow, if it was this bad today, I don't even want to know what it was like years ago. Go somewhere else and play, save your money. Paid somewhere around $50-60 to play here, this course is not worth $20.
