Minerals Golf Club is one of seven courses offered by Crystal Springs Resort, which includes Ballyowen -- the top rated course in New Jersey and Crystal Springs, which is ranked as one of the 50 toughest courses in the country.

This Robert Trent Jones-designed layout has ranked in the top 12 short courses in the country and it is known locally as the best nine-hole golf course in the area. The course sits at the base of Hamburg Mountain, sprawling across lush rolling hills. The layout is both scenic and challenging with a blend of natural hazards and strategically placed bunkers coming into play. The course offers a fair challenge that is player-friendly enough for juniors and beginners, making it an ideal round for families.

Good Value, Quality Golf

Good value, 18 holes with cart for $26. Played in 3 hours. Good course for Average Golfers, not for beginners or Kids learning the game. Elevations make a poor walking course. They should build some bridges for more direct access to greens after hitting your approach shots. Greens are undulating, so very quick on the wrong side of a putt or chip.

Wouldn’t recommend

I waited 30 min for a cart that I prepaid for.
There were neighborhood girls walking around in the course randomly.
Loud motorcycles near 8th and 9th holes.
Would not go back.

DISAPPOINTED

Course had only 9 holes. Had tp play twice and wasn't documented that way. Sprinklers on in fairways. Called pro shop to turn off. They didn't.

Cheap and I can tell why

This maybe the worst course I have ever played. Greens were slower then my carpet at home. The fairways plugged every driver I hit and the sand looked like a cart path. Really disappointed and shocked Crystal Springs puts their name anywhere near this course.

What I Expected

The course is exactly what I expected. The first hole is incredibly tight off the tee. The course has great variety in the par 3s; should really be an expectation since it has 5 of them. Par 4s have reasonable variety. Greens are OK. Course conditions were fine. Be aware, this is the "family" course for the resort, so there is a 18 hole foot golf course that runs down the fairways, not sure not that might mess with tee times. Also, each green has two flagsticks, one for the regular players and one with a larger hole for groups with young kids. For value...9 holes costs $20 plus resort fee, 18 holes is $25 plus resort fee (when I played). The 9 hole fee might be a little over priced, but the price for two loops is a good deal. (objectively, the course is probably 2 or 3 stars, not 4. But at the end of the day, it was never built to be a Sweetens Cove level nine hole course. It serves the design purpose perfectly, so 4 stars)

Mediocire

What a disappointing course. I read all of the reviews prior that made this sound like such a great course but was more than let down. They keep zero maintenance on this course. They say it is 18 holes but it is really 9 holes that you will play twice and will not refund you if you don't play the 9 holes again. They implement 0 rules as they allowed groups of 5+ to play and it more than ruined the pace of the game. I wouldn't recommend this course to my worst enemy.

Good for the price

Not to bad for what you pay but the course is nothing super special. Greens are slow, tee boxes aren't great.

Worst money ever spent

Let me start by saying this course did not even have hole number posts. After finding the 1st hole, it was soon than I had realized the course is a complete waste of money, par 3. DO NOT play here unless you are bringing your kids or a family out. Not for serious play.

Bang for the buck

This is a very well maintained track and a great value for you dollar. The only thing you must remember is that this course is part of a resort and therefore a "family" course. Pace of play can be rather slow at times. With a Golfnow Best Buy it's well worth you time.

Well maintained. Some challenging holes

We enjoyed our round. Course was well maintained. Greens were somewhat fast. Did not enjoy the foot golf customers playing at the same time on the same holes. Some challenging holes. Pace of play was average at best. But overall was a good experience. Would definitely play Minerals again.

Foot Golf

Not only was the course of play very slow, foot golf players enjoyed a round simultaneously to our round. I didn't see one ranger check take a lap all morning. The course was in good condition though. I will never play another round of Golf at Minerals if they continue to have foot golf round playing at the same time
