Things getting better at Beaver Brook
Been playing here for yrs. I believe new management took over within the last yr. It looks to me like they're spending money here again (for a while, had the look of a place that was just being milked for whatever cash they could extract from it, with virtually no investment back in). Most of the bunkers were in disrepair, that's finally being fixed. The bar area appears to be under renovation as well. I'm happy to see it moving in the right direction. Staff are friendly, course is forgiving.
Like the last reviewer I have played here for years. Until last year the place was a shadow of its former self. New money has meant new bunkers with quality sand, more obvious maintenance and repaired tee boxes. There is a new patio overlooking 18th green and the indoor grill room is all new - floor, bar etc. All in all it’s great to see this back to the quality we remember. Not entirely there yet but on its way. Will be interested in locker room progress but the course is what matters and so far it looks very good.
Worst course conditions
$65 a round, the bunkers were not sand they were shale,mud and weeds. The greens were air rated and there was more sand on them then in the bunkers. Will never play there again, played on better $25 courses. Absolutely Horrible. Oh and a six pack of domestic beer cost $23, what a joke!!!!
week end rates are not worth it
no sand in sand traps at all. patchy fairways. fairways dried and cracked in spots. tee boxes dry and patchy as well. roughs seemed better. cart paths need assistance. greens were pretty good well watered
course has gone down hill. not worth the weekend rates. absolutely not one granule of sand in any bunkers. patches of cracked dry earth on the fairways and tee boxes, extremely dry surfaces. roughs were a little better.
Nice tract but sand less traps
Nice course everything was maintained except the sand traps. None of them had any drainage or SAND. They were mud with some larger stones and grass. They are unplayable. They don’t even pretend they’re playable as there are no rakes on course.
Course is in great condition play was manageable, very challenging. Bunkersneed work.
Everything but the sand
The course was in great condition except for the sand traps
N they were unplayable. I was told they will be repairing them. I hope they do the rest of the course was In great condition. Played in a little over 4 hours. Enjoyed the day. Staff was friendly.
Not too bad
Pretty course layout and nice greens, but sand traps were unplayable and it was never mentioned at the pr shop. Cart path was also mediocre and uneven. Besides that, a fun golf course to play.
Sand, give me sand!!
Great course for the money, but please just put sand in the bunkers, it was shocking how little they care about the bunkers when the greens and fairways were in great condition!! Give me sand!! Steal some from the jersey shore guys, it was appalling the bunker conditions, otherwise it’s a great track for $30 including a cart!!
Best Value course in NJ
Beaver Brook was a great course but due to its decline in new members it has taken its toll. The greens, fairways and tee boxes were immaculate and groomed to perfection. I paid $25 to play 18 with a cart included. Needless to say my expectations were not high, but I was pleasantly surprised. I played on a Tuesday around 1pm and there was almost no one else on the course. The only disappointment was the bunkers. There was simply no sand in them, and I mean NO SAND!! I will play this track again especially at the price, but they need to add some sand to the bunkers and offer a course layout book or something that could indicate hazards off the tee shots that can’t be seen from many of the tees. Overall 7.8/10 as previously noted the greens and fairways were in great condition and rolled fast and true, but having no sand in the bunkers truly took away from what was a gem of NJ courses.
Good course except sand traps
They have taken reasonably good care of the course except they must have decided to not care at all about the bunkers which are now dried out with no sand and starting to grow grass.in them.
Perfect way to open the new year!
One of few courses open. In pretty good shape considering all the rain. Very good value.
A Course Failed By Its Owners
Played this course for the first time in 25 years after having played it weekly in the 90s.
The layout is lovely. The course is in great shape for August. The greens are terrific.
Like so many others have already said though, the sand traps are a sad spectacle. Zero sand. No rakes. They’ve simply given up on them.
If you can get a cheap time and don’t mind giving yourself a free drop out of what were once sand traps, play here.
It was once an immaculate golf course. Pristine. It is so very close to still being one of the best in the area. Sad to see a great course stained by penny-foolish owners.
Nice course. Tight fairways. Good greens. No sand in any of the sand traps. All mud,grass and stones. No rakes either but not needed as they’re isn’t a grain of sand anywhere.
Course as good as can be expected for winter play, no one mention the greens had been irritated recently and are in bad condition.
