Colts Neck Golf Club
Colts Neck Golf Club is one of central New Jersey's most popular courses. The diverse course offers everything from Scottish-style bunkers to sparkling lakes. Tall golden fescue rough borders the fairways and the greens are large and undulating. The course is seemingly short at only 6,236 yards but it shouldn't be taken lightly. It's much more challenging than it appears. The layout finishes with two of its toughest holes. The 17th has a tough green fiercely guarded by out-of-bounds and the course saved the most difficult hole for last. This par 3 will test even the most seasoned golfers. In addition to the golf course, Colts Neck also has a 25-station driving range that stays open late. It's a great spot for getting in some practice after work.

This is the only course I've played where Covid-19 didn't seem to exist?
Rakes in bunkers, water jugs being refilled (which I can't complain about), ball washers, and full depth cups.
Layout is a bit odd, with 4 par 3's on the back. 2 of which are 230 from the tips.
There was also a par 4 that had two trees overhanging the green, which even made a perfect placed tee shot almost impossible to hit the green. And a couple of holes on the back have giant power lines running through them. Easily the most forgettable back 9, and 2-3 holes go directly into the setting sun, so good luck with a mid afternoon tee time.
Finally, it was day 1 of 2 of the club championship, so the greenskeeper put the pins in every impossible location possible which made the round even less enjoyable, but that's random. Greens were running quite fast, which would have been good with some fair pins, but this round had just about every pin tucked into a corner or paces from a slope.
Fairways were a bit run down and muddy.
18th finishes on a par 3 over water, with no drop zone, and no margin for error. Left the round with a really poor taste in my mouth, would not come back.
GREENS WERE ROLLING TRUE
The best greens i putted on all year. rolling true and fair. kudos to the greens keeper. the course was in very good condition overall. only play here a couple of times of year but always have an enjoyable experience.
Beautiful and Well Maintained
If you are a real stickler the only bad thing you can say about this course is that it is on the shorter side. . At just over 6000 yards from the tips. I don’t care about that personally. I’m a white tee guy. If you aren’t a stickler then you won’t have a single complaint. It’s a beautiful course. Very well maintained. Greens rolled nicely. Drink cart was available every 4-5 holes. Driving range. Putting area. Chipping area. Starters are on top of things. Like nowhere I’ve ever seen. Oh and gps in the carts! Pretty ideal. Highly recommended.
Well kept course. Group in front of us was the last group out with carts and they were holding up multiple groups. Hey it’s a public course I guess. Other then that, nice course to play
Overall a good experience the staff was extremely friendly and the course was in good condition with the exception of one hole that had damage done to the fairway and green from the maintenance department that appeared to have a fuel leak from one of their tractors and one hole that had a massive tree right in front of the green so even with my perfect drive 250 down the middle I had to try a bump and run shot up instead of just hitting a wedge into the green??? The greens rolled nice but I thought it was slightly over priced for 16 holes
Not worth $100
Decent course. Conditions good. Friendly pro shop. Control-freak starter. Pace slow but it’s a Sunday. Biggest problem was tough guy wannabe in twosome ahead of us that drove all the way back from 275 yards away to our tee box and threatened to Beat us up because we hit a tee shot and didn’t notice they were in the woods. Our tee shot was in the middle of the fairway and 20 yards behind them. Typical jersey shore meathead pretend-Mafioso-gangster. Saw some other knuckleheads in the parking lot too. Seems like the clientele for the day. Otherwise place is ok but not worth $100 w/cart
