The public course at Sea Oaks Country Club is an 18-hole championship course that covers 194 acres of beautiful terrain in the pine barrens of South Jersey. The golf course utilizes the natural landscape but it also integrates modern techniques in its design.

Pines and oaks are scattered throughout the scenic course providing a nice view while playing. Sea Oaks Country Club also features difficult water hazards and bunkers as well as uphill and downhill lies. With its five-tee system, the back tee is quite challenging while the front tees offer different routes to take for beginning golfers if it gets too difficult making it a good option for all levels of golfers.

Had a12:21 tee time. Normally would be able to finish a round especially as a 2 some. This course was really crowded because of the weather. We were only able to complete 14 holes. There were at least 3 foursomes in front of us that played so slow we thought the tortose was playing today. A 17 minute rated hole was being played by these foursomes at appx 30 minutes. On at least one hole one player parked her cart went over to otherside of green where her ball went without a club and went back to cart for her club and came back. Things like this made this round really discouraging. No rangers on course to help with speed of play. Someday i would like to play this course as the course itself is well laid out and the fairways are plush. I rated this a 4 because of pace of play and the starter mike wasnt too friendly to us though he received a tip.

The course was in great shape but the starter had abandoned his or her post. There was a group of 11 players teeing off in front of our twosome and we had to wait. We tee'd off 40 minutes after our original tee time. It took over 5 hours to play.

Did not see a ranger a any point during the round.

Sea Oaks is one of my favorite courses in south Jersey. The course was in really good shape for so late in the season. My only negative comment was the pace of play. It took 5 hours to play 18. We didn't see a ranger all day. There were a foursome, a threesome, a twosome and my threesome on the 18th hole. Other than the slow play it was an enjoyable round.

As a retired player I try and play higher priced courses in the off season and Sea Oaks was a real Golf Now "Hot Deal". The course is long and well bunkered. My group had some difficulty adjusting to the fast greens, but that only adds to our winter conversation.

First time at this course. The layout is challenging, it was in decent shape, not great. 16 is a zig zag hole, a blind dog leg right, then a sharp left to a green with a quite a bit water in play. Probably the toughest hole on the course.

Driving range is very convenient literally right outside the pro shop, the putting green is close to the first tee box, but when asking about conditions the starter was a little dismissive of me and said they are the same as the practice green. They were not. Range distance flags were a little confusing for the unfamiliar but I was only warming up, I groove my swing and baseline my club distance elsewhere. .I was a little disappointed they use common range mats.

Two of our party had golfed St Andrews and commented on some features on this course appeared inspired by St Andrews. I take their word for it.

The fairways can be a little tight in spots and the rough is slightly high, if you try to grip and rip and go off the fairway, much of the adjoining trees are thick, many resulting lies are going to require you to go sideways to get out of trouble if you get in there. So stay within your game here.

Probably not a course I would suggest for a novice. I will likely go back later in the year once the weather turns chilly and most of the fair weather golfers hunker down for the winter. I was told Sea Oaks runs all kinds of specials through the winter (round/lunch combos), things like that.

The greens were in poor shape because if annual maintenance. some one needs to inform you so you can make a decision whether you want to put up with the conditions. The course, otherwise, is my favorite.
