Rating 70.8
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.

Don’t play during the winter

We were really looking forward to playing this course after reading all the great reviews. We were quickly disappointed as all the tee boxes and green were temporary. And there was only one tee box per hole, no back, coward or seniors. Course is really getting chewed up with these temps. Looks like a really nice course to play during the season but extremely disappointing during the winter months.

Nice short course

Front nine visually more impressive than back nine, but still a fun course to play with holes with forced carries, long and short par threes and fours. Fairways and greens were in good shape. Course was crowded but pace of play was good with ever present ranger pushing players along allowing for an acceptable four hour round.The course ranks high with the other excellent courses in monmouth county.

Frost Delay

I was never told about an Hour and 20 minute frost delay until I walked up to the starter. It would have been nice if I received an email stating the delay or even was told by the front desk of the frost delay, nothing until I approached the starter and was told to come back in about an hour. It was Halloween and I did have plans later that day, beside that slight issue, it was a great day to play golf on one of my favorite courses.

Nice Round on a Chilly Fall day

Pro shop staff and starter were friendly and accommodating. Played a nice sub 4 hour round with two members. Course was in very good condition with only spotty bare/browning spots. Course is not extremely difficult but is challenging enough for an average golfer like myself.

Colts Neck - fix the uneven tee boxes for 5 stars

The only reason I did not give Colts Neck five stars was because on every tee box, the ground was uneven so you had to really search for a level stance. I asked the male golfer if the tees were uneven at the tips (he said not all, but some). Well the ladies tees were all uneven.

The layout of the course provided variety - some holes had forced carry's over waste area off the tees, some doglegs, etc.. The par 3's were fair with just one being so long (160 to the back pin placement) that it required a driver from all three female golfers in our group.

Pace of play was not great for the fall when the course did not appear to be too crowded (4 hr 32 min round), but the pace was partly caused by the two we were paired with who were slow players (three practice swings, UGH) and walking (and some of the distances between greens and tees were long for walkers - for example, between 11 and 12). Plus the group in front of back us up on 15 (a par 5) because one guy was taking a phone call in the middle of the fairway. We actually yelled to him to "hit the ball." What is wrong with people! I mention this because they did have a ranger (which is great but they can't catch every offender).

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The golf carts were electric, quiet, fast and had a nice GPS system. We ate in the grill after the round and the food was good. The ladies locker room was very nice (note: this is a semi-private course). The Pro Shop had an end-of-season sale and I was happy to see they did have a variety of sizes for women.

Overall a very nice course!

Beautiful course

This course is a short track but don’t let that fool you. The course is in great shape. It forces you to hit a good drive. The course was in excellent shape. They maintain everything very well. The sand traps are very nice and raked out. The greens were in good shape. The views are beautiful on most of the holes. We played with a gentleman Tom who used to be a member and he was a total joy to play with. The starter was very friendly. My sister and I will return to play this course again. I highly recommend playing this course.

Staff great, members not so much

Played 18. Course terribly backed up mid week. Waited 10 -15 minutes on numerous holes. Ran into some members (we were not) and they were rude, almost accusatory that we pulled up near them at the tee box, because they had to wait for players in front of them. They had snarky remarks. Then the walked so slow off the greens, like they were trying to annoy us. No, it was not an age reason for the slow-walk jab.

We were guests and the members trated us like crap.

Honesty?

Played several times, good course and experience. This time forgot my Garmin GPS in the cart. Called the next day and the following day - not turned in. Only reasonable explanation is one of the cart people who clean the carts after turning them in kept it. I expected better of an upscale place like this. For this reason I will not return.

I tried to delete this but Golf Now does not allow deleting or editing reviews nor can they do it on their end. I was frustrated by losing a $350 GPS. Hard to believe it vanished.
