White Oaks Country Club is carved from the mature pinelands of Newfield in south Jersey. Towering oak trees frame the golf course, separating each hole and giving each one a secluded feel. There are several challenges in store on this layout including massive strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, but it is also forgiving enough to accommodate beginners. The golf course does not have just one hole that it considers its signature but in fact, multiple holes. There is the par-5 seventh which stretches to a monstrous 621 yards and the par-4 ninth features a tricky second shot over water to a double green. These two challenging holes take advantage of the landscape's natural contours. The 17th is yet another signature hole, it has been voted the "toughest par 3 in South Jersey."

Course was in great shape. The greens were generally fair and clean. As part of a twosome the course assistancthe made sure the foursome in front of us let us play through. The course is short with several part 4s that don't require a driver. Certainly worth the money. Should be back

This is the second time I played this course - the first was 3 days prior. I am really impressed with this course It may not be a Scotland Run or White Clay Creek, but for the value I don’t know if it can be beat. The staff was great, food was excellent and the pace of play was very good. The bunkers could have been in better shape but I guess that is more of an incentive to stay out of them. The greens rolled true. There is only a small net to hit some very old driving balls into for warmup but again, I thought value-wise, it is near the top.

This golf course is not especially long but the tree-lined holes and dog legs make it a legitimate challenge. The ground was cleared under the trees so it was easy to find you ball. The greens were in excellent condition and rolled very nicely. The bar and dining facilities looked nice but were rather crowded due to a golf outing so I didn't get a chance to try the 19th hole. Just two concerns. First, some of the sand traps looked like waste bunkers and I couldn't find a rake. Secondly, the golfers were very loud throughout the course with a lot of yelling and loud conversations; maybe the rest of the course was so quiet so it sounded louder. Played in 3 hours!

Everything was good even though we got rain on the second hole . Even with rain the fairways were good and the greens were good. The only draw back was the tolit on the 6th hole was extreamly bad and had not been serviced since April.

I really do enjoy this course. I've played here perhaps 8 times over the years since the course opened in 1999. In fact, I shot my lowest score on this course so it holds a special place for me. I enjoy the layout. I enjoy that it hasn't been encroached upon by housing developments. And the food/drink carts are readily available. The primary reason that I didn't provide at least 4 stars was the general condition of the course. The traps have a significant number of rocks in them, some of fairly reasonable size. The fairways can be clumpy with weeds. The greens themselves are in good shape even this early in the season, but the areas around the greens, including the fringes, often have bare patches which can make chipping and putting challenging.

Back in the early 00's this course was in incredible shape and they charged a fee that was commensurate with that experience. Likewise, today the conditions are not what they were and the fee is lower so from a "value for the money" perspective, I still feel it's a good value, but I'd much rather see the conditions improved if that meant a slightly higher fee. The two biggest improvements I'd love to see would be to screen the rocks out of the bunkers and the bare spots filled in around the greens.

I still recommend this course because of the enjoyable layout and because of the value.
