Pricey

A little bit pricey for the money course not in great condition for that money especially the tee boxes are even. Always looking for a flat space to hit.

why no 19th hole ??

This is a beautiful, though challenging due to length, course..
I was really ready for a nice cold cocktail after 18 holes and to my surprise, the tavern was closed !
As someone else mentioned, this tavern seems to be used for a lot of private events.
This was the case i encountered. It was used during the day and closed afterwards.
The place was already set up for another private event that was scheduled for the next day.
Very disappointing.
You could see the beautiful clubhouse in the distance when you are on 18,,,,,and then realize it's just a mirage ! LOL

Course is alway fun but the tavern is poorly managed

Why does a golf course tavern course the kitchen on a Friday night at 8pm in June!!!! Its a joke. Profit and revenue is not a concern as its run by the county. Such a shame..

A good public course by NJ standards

Been playing this course for years. Ever since they took over, Kemper Sports have been making improvements every year (cutting down lots of trees, improving drainage, new clubhouse, etc). Yes, pace of play can be bad, and yes, leagues can eat up weekend AM tee times, but it’s not as bad as some reviews would make it. Greens are large and in good shape. Clubhouse is new and is well-equipped. It’s the less popular sister to Galloping Hill. Not tricked out and the layout of Ashbrook is going to favor the average golfer than Galloping Hill. Be wary it rains—the course can get swampy and it will close even with what would appear to be an average downpour.

Solid Course

Good course. Greens were in good condition. Nothing too special on the layout, but overall solid track.

Worst Course in the Area

+Course is in poor shape.
+Cart path is a hazard
+Staff is not friendly
+Social distancing and staff face coverings are scarce.
+The Tavern restaurant is closed for private events more than it is open for golfers looking for a 19th hole.

Interesting course

Friendly and accomdating staff, greens in good condition, although it would be nice if golfers helped out with the green divits. Fairways nicely cut, wide fairways and challenging placements of the tee boxes. Nice course. Lots of nature allowed to grow. Though a little pricey for me, it's a nice play and I will be back.
