Not How It Used To Be

I'm not sure why, but this course used to be so much better. Even though the greens still roll well, there are divot marks all over them. At least one of the bunkers needs sand added to it. There was some kind of netting that grabbed my club when trying to hit out of it because of the lack of sand They also apparently don't do the 12 minute intervals between tee times anymore, because they let a group playing from the senior tees tee off as we were still putting on the first green. For me, this course is not worth the price they're charging right now. I honestly was disappointed.

AWFUL GREEN CONDITIONS

The greens were really sad, bare spots, and pitch marks all overt the place, not to mention the brown circular patterns from the previous pin locations. I heard this course used to be amazing and I was really excited to play this course. However, this will be my one and only time playing Rutgers.

Nice fairways

Course was in good condition. Fairways were really nice, but the greens were pretty hard. It was 100 degrees and the balls were still taking BIG hops off the greens.

Water Water Water

Always a favorite course of mine to play due to the pace of play and layout and it was cheap but last year they went up on fees ($50 to walk on weekends) which changes the value-add dynamic. Now I feel it is overpriced for what is being offered.

Also no water was on the course which may be due to the Pandemic but they didn’t provide any bottled water either or have any vending machines. It was so hot the day we played and it wasn’t a good experience.
