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.

They have all temporary green and open only 17 holes.
U should notice before making reservation tee time.
My partner gave up playing after 2nd hole.
I couldn’t collect fee from him because he was so mad .

Good "winter golf" for the price.

The course was in good shape. Although there were temp greens and temp tee boxes, I understand the reason for this. I was still able to enjoy the day and the golf during the winter season.

Great as usual

Great course and staff. Only downer is alcohol policy with members only allowed to purchase.
Sand Barrens had similar situate yet allowed member to sponsor an associate membership which allowed you to buy drinks at bar and on course. Just a thought. Not a deal breaker. Great track

Nice course

The course was in very nice shape. But when I booked on Golf Now, I was not told that all carts had to be in by 4:30. I had enough light in the day to finish my last two holes. But course rules stated that all carts needed to be in by 4:30. If I had know that I'd have booked an earlier tee time.

Slow play

Although the course was in great shape and the golf staff there is awesome the pace of play was terrible. I ended up leaving after 3 1/2 hours because we had only played 12 holes. I understand it was a beautiful fall day and a Sunday but you should not have to wait to hit every shot.

Pace of play was terrible

Ranger did even attempt to get the ridiculously slow foursome ahead of us to close the over 1-1/2 hole gap between them and the foursome ahead of them!
