Post Storm?

The back 9 were mostly unplayable. Why were 14, 15, 16 and 17 open? Not sure, but there was lots of water everywhere. Need new shoes.

Nice layout

Nice layout. Some holes a little beat up. But, greens were in good shape. Couple fairways a bit chewed up. You can see how this used to be a great course. Good bones. Tight fairways.

Very fun but short course. The course was in good shape and the greens were quick.

I look forward to one day playing it again.

Great day at PCC!

This was my first round at Princeton CC and while it was brutally hot out, we had a great time and were impressed with the course. The fairways and greens were in very nice shape and while the layout of the course is fairly basic, the mix of distances for the 18 holes was perfect. We will be going back for sure. Also, kudos to the staff, very nice folks

Perfect day at Princeton Golf Course

This course is one of my favorite: starting with the very convenient driving range. I like to walk, and the course layout is very suitable for walking, not too many hills. The weather was just perfect, but as it was getting a bit hot in the afternoon, I wished for a snack cart to grab a drink - unfortunately, one isn't available on this course. There are enough challenges on the course for almost every level of player from novice to expert. Yet, none of the holes are overwhelming. The cost of a round of golf is quite affordable, so it makes this course an excellent value. I look forward to many more rounds here.

This course is overpriced

Back 9 in terrible shape. Two par 4’s had Tee box moved 2/3 way up the hole due to “drainage” however pricing remained $66 with cart. Greens are challenging but rough surrounding green is patchy/solid dirt. Would have been great for $40
