Quail Brook Golf Course in Somerset is one of central New Jersey's top public courses. The challenging design is a favorite amongst local golfers. The layout has a diverse mix of holes, some of which are spacious and wide-open and others that are rolling and tight. Although the golf course may seem short at 6,630 yards from the back tees, don't be fooled by the yardage. The course can feel much longer thanks to the hilly terrain. The front nine has subtler undulations while the back nine is dramatically hilly, which makes it a tough course to walk. Quail Brook Golf Course's undulating fairways lead to challenging sloped greens that are framed with strategically placed bunkers. There aren't too many opportunities for driving, but your short game will definitely get a workout.

Great course layout.

The starter was very cooperative. Staff is friendly to out-of-county golfers. Maintenance it top notch. The back nine has wonderful rolling hills.

Quail Brook

Nice course, fairly easy to walk, helps if one knows to short cut from 9 to 10. Course was in good shape, and pace of play was good. Somerset County has a very nice selection of golf courses that are worth the ride to play.

Great course

Well maintained course. Enjoyed playing there.
There are a lot of nats though on most of the holes. Not sure if it’s always like that.

Be Aware

The golf course was in excellent condition
After 9 holes we had a Thunder and Lightning storm with a down pour. Course was so wet it became unplayable. We asked for a rain check as we only played 9 holes. All Somerset county golf courses have a no rain check policy. No matter how many holes you have played, Never Never heard of a golf course with this policy
Again a nice course but check the weather before you give them your money
