Gross

I rarely write reviews... I've avoided this course because I played it several years ago and remember it being wet/muddy and having terrible lies. Today I gave it another shot due to convenience for my buddies. Wow, how could anyone pay full price to play this is beyond me. Pretty much a shag field. Wet and muddy. Broken cart paths. Inconsistent grass and bare lies. Actually rocks right under the grass in some fairways. I understand that its November but conditions in other courses I played recently are far superior.

The only thing it had going for it was that the green were in good shape and the sand traps were in great shape.

Somerset county courses look like country clubs compared to this. Even for the $51 dollar deal I got it was still poor value.

Great conditions/layout but will be better after new clubhouse is built

Overall the course is in great shape, well maintained with a fun but flat layout. If you play from the black tees the course can play pretty long. The only thing that would keep me away from this course is the lack of a clubhouse/driving range/practice green at the moment. Currently they operate out of a temporary trailer as the pro shop, however this will change once the new clubhouse is built. As far as the practice facilities go, I would hope they install a putting and chipping green with all the money that is being put into it. I talked to the staff and was told that the clubhouse construction should be done in about 18 months which essentially means the 2019 season. If you're not concerned with the lack of a clubhouse and practice facilities at the moment, I would absolutely recommend playing here.

Relatively flat but long course

Major construction is currently being done so it's unfair to totally judge the course on this particular day. Big hitters might find course easy because of the wide fairways. Overall it has a nice layout and it's a fun course. Pace of play was pretty decent for a Sunday.

Easy flat course.

Course is generally maintained. Course is pretty flat so walking is not a problem. Has it's charm on par 3's and a short par 4 on front nine is a good way to lower your score. But par 5s are long so sharpen those fairway woods. One good tip for outsiders... Union County offer out-of-resident membership for $100. The card will allow you to play at resident green-fee. It will pay for itself in few trips and you can also use it on Galloping Hills, which has gone through extensive remodeling.
