Horrible condition!

From tee to green, ground conditions were abysmal. Massive dirt patches on the fairway, torn up tee boxes and a tremendous amount of ball marks on the green. My group spent a lot of time fixing ball marks!

And $15 EXTRA to have a single cart if you were in a 4some. For an already extremely overpriced course to charge that is beyond comprehension.

The breakfast sandwich was good though.

Pace Stinks

Spent nearly 5 hours on the course. Waited at every tee box. Waited on every approach shot. It’s a shame because I thought it was an interesting layout. I refuse to play courses that can’t get people off 18 in at least 4:20. The scorecard even said pace of play should be 4:10!

Very Disappointed

I have been playing this course since it opened and have never been more disappointed.
There was no one at the bag drop and when we went to the starter, we were told to get our own cart and pull up to the tee 5 minutes before our tee time.
There was no one at the 1st hole to make sure things were going smoothly and we didn’t see a ranger the whole day.
The Tees were spongy and needed cutting and the bunkers were mud.
I have never seen the course in such bad condition
For the money we I paid I expected much better.

Much better than reviews

After reading so many bad reviews I expected the worst but was pleasantly surprised. Fairways and greens are mostly excellent, firm and fast. The bunkers were below average but thats pretty much always been the case , best just to avoid them.. Tee boxes aren't pretty but plenty of space to find a nice level spot to tee off from

Not what it once was.

After buying the round on Golf Now, things got off to a bad start when we showed up at the course. Our package, which included range balls, was not to be as the range was closed for “lawn mowing”. Our golf carts which were supposed to have GPS, did not. Tee boxes were considerably lacking grass as were some fairways in spots. Weeds filled some areas of the sand(dirt) traps. I have not played the course in years but its condition was considerably below the high standards they once had.

Trap

WARNING!! the pictures they advertise are of the West private course (worth the absurd price), the East is in terrible shape and over a 30% of the grass is dead and theres not one nice tee box. Good course layout though

What happened here?

Terrible day out today. I understand it's a holiday and pace of play will be affected, so I'm not gonna dock them that it took 5 and a half hours to get us around 18, although the starter only rolled by us once at around the 16th. I do however have a huge issue with the value presented. We paid about $97 a person for 18 holes with carts included. The course is in disarray. Players have not been repairing ball marks on the greens, however besides that they were in ok shape, but for that price a round, I expect excellence. Neshanic valley is not far from this course and they seem to have no issues. The tee boxes were all in terrible shape, not only are they mostly dirt, but for some reason, the greens crews were watering them all day, so most are just a muddy mess. Why are you watering greens and tee boxes mid day? Traveling from the second to third hole, we even had the sprinklers turned on us directly and got soaked. This is just unacceptable. Rough was very unkempt and patches of missing rough around many greens. All the sand traps were basically mud, some with huge puddles in the middle of them, and it hasn't rained in almost a week. Honestly, I wouldn't mind playing a course in this condition if I knew what I was getting into and the value matched the course. $97 pp for a round at a course in this condition is just ridiculous. I don't think we'll be back. Plenty of public courses in the area are in way better condition with much lower greens fees to boot.

The course has gone down hill

The tee boxes on the East have recently been aerated and there’s barely any grass on them. Also they were soaked with. I recent rain and a mid morning tee time. This shouldn’t be the case. The greens are rittled in divots and the sand traps are atrocious. Too much inconsistency with this course. It feels like they are not going to keep up to the standard it once had now that it’s been said they sold the course to a developer for housing. Your better off playing at other courses for less. Not worth the price to play there.
