Nice Walking Course
Course in good shape, greens too, but some golfers need to fix their ball marks. Not water, no ball washers, no amenities.
Very Nice Course! Amazing Pace of Play! So FAST!!
The course is well kept as it's part of the Rutgers University Golf Course Masters program so the students keep it ship shape. The most amazing thing was the pace of play! I started sweating keeping the game at this pace! Amazing! Started 18 holes (walking) at &:30am - done at 10:45am. GREAT DAY! Great Course! NO FOOD so bring your own snacks and drinks. FYI.
The course was in great shape
Pace of play was terrific
Plan to be be back
Ball washers & water
It’s kinda crazy that Rutgers doesn’t have a problem letting their students share rented scooters, that are laying all around the campus, but there are no ball washers and no drinking water on the course, not to mention a usually very good half-way house is shutdown… when is the COVID madness going to end?
Also, for a golf course attached to a university with a well respected golf turf management program, the fairways, rough and even the greens are in surprisingly poor condition.
Hi, thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is important to us. We will make note and we hope to see you back at Rutgers University Golf Course!
overblown Covid precautions
decent course, but absolutley ridiculous that there was no drinking water on the course, water fountains disabled, just one vending machine largely sold out, and all on a 90 degree day. Do the people managing this course really think that it's wiser to remove waterfountains, or not put out watercoolers, etc. rather than risk the incredibly remote chance that Covid would somehow be passed along via these? They are more likely to have people dropping from heat stroke. Where is the common sense?
Your feedback about water on the course is important to us. As we begin the season, we are working to develop the best way to provide our guest with refreshments. We do allow outside drinks. You are welcome to bring your own bottled water, Gatorade, or another refreshment as long as it is alcohol-free. We are glad to see you rated everything else to be great during your game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Rutgers University Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.
play 2 rounds a week...great staff and usually great pace of play....
This is a solid golf course especially for the $. Easy check-in, very well maintained, and not too many spots to lose your ball. Only thing I would criticize is the signs to each hole are confusing. There were times where we didn’t know where the next hole was. Cart path signs should be placed right before greens instead of a white line (which looks tacky). Other than that, this was a solid course.
Many improvements in the overall course; drainage being one that sticks out. Price is very reasonable and the course design is a plus; good balance on par 3 holes along with some real challenging par 4's and 5's. Greens were slow which made long putts especially uphill putts a challenge. Should have hit a few on your practice green to get a feel for the pace but from the look of the practice green it might have been rolled recently while the course greens were pretty soft. Would also be nice if Gophers would fix their ball marks.
As usual great shape greens great nothing bad about the course love this place pace great
Not in the condition it usually is
Parts of the course were burned out and this is uncommon for Rutgers. Also, the greens were in mostly good shape, but the pins were placed in places where multiple ball marks were not repaired...very frustrating.
Rutgers is my go to place
Always on time, conditions are awesome and layout is great !!!
My Monday Course
As a player of more than 20 years, I’ve known everyone who’s been connected with the RUGC for many years. The staff is without question wonderful. The manager, however, is bereft of any social skills and personality. I knew the young man while he was a fledgling student at Rutgers. He has become a bane in my opinion. Why? He demonstrates zero accord when it comes to understanding the power of influence or long term relationships. He has repeatedly overcharged my son and I. My son is a 3rd year student. Boasting a 3 handicap, the manager insists on charging us full price, not for students, but full price for everything. I’m a senior and he’s a student and we often play only 9 holes. The pace of play is not conducive on most days to continue 18 holes.
The staff is amicable, affable and friendly. But that’s because these people are older men who value relationships. Mr. Bob is a young hot head who has nothing but contempt for the public. Perhaps he should find himself doing other things…. It would certainly make the RUGC experience a bit better.
