Bowling Green Golf Club is in the heart of northern New Jersey, surrounded by miles of idyllic countryside. An abundance of mature oaks and towering red pines characterizes the scenic course. This quick, shady layout is a great round for walkers. The golf course has a classic links design that is easily played in less than four hours. Like most traditional links courses, the gently undulating terrain has the perfect pitch and roll. It also provides each hole with unique challenges that require accuracy and strategy. Trees heavily line the fairways, presenting some of the course's most formidable challenges. Bowling Green Golf Club's front nine is slightly more forgiving than the back nine, which incorporates the natural ponds and wetlands on a few holes. There are also some tricky doglegs to contend with.

Bowling green cc

Really nice conditions considering it’s mid October. Will definitely going back to play the course. I can only imagine what this course looks like in June. My boys and I really loved how true the greens rolled and how much they broke along with the speed. Challenging. We really enjoyed the round.

Terrific course

The gentleman who was at the cash register was also the starter. He was incredibly kind and knowledgeable about the entire course. The course itself wasn't terrific shape and the price was very fair. Pace of play was terrific.
