Green Knoll Golf Course
Green Knoll Golf Course in Bridgewater Township has a varied terrain that provides a unique character to the course. The course sprawls across gently rolling hills dappled with mature trees. Much of the course's challenges are a result of the tricky contours. Some of the elevation changes are dramatic but there are also some subtle ones, which can be just as tricky. Further accuracy is required to maneuver the tight fairways. There are definitely challenges in store throughout but overall the golf course's playability appeals to all skill levels, from novices to avid golfers. It measures a manageable 6,443 yards from the back tees. In addition to the 18-hole course, there is also a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course. Green Knoll is one of five golf courses operated by the Somerset County Park Commission.

Golfers vs People who Play Golf
People who play golf see the weather report or peer out of their windows, and see a chilly grey drizzle and skip the trip to the course.
Gofers make a beeline to their favorite muni knowing they’ll have the run of the joint.
This was that day at Green Knoll, a Somerset county parks gem, playing way longer than the 6443 yds advertised on the card, on a day when the rough is soaked, the fairways glistening under a misty drizzle and the greens producing rooster tails on long putts.
Those greens are small, true and fast, despite the conditions, hard to hold and decidedly dicey when above the hole.
Course was in terrific shape. It gives the player no shortage of decisions to make. Doglegs and elevation changes force you to play strategically, and if you don’t , and I often didn’t , you’re staring double bogey in the face.
Your chipping game better be on point, the little greens are easy to miss, often raised and protected with bunkers and thick rough.
The best part is there’s nary a house to be seen. It’s a parkland layout with marshy and wild areas that make for a great walk. On this day we saw plenty of deer including a 10 point buck.
Great layout, great shape, great day out.
Bring your “A” game
Course presents good test for your game. A lot of uneven lies. Greens in great shape, slick and tricky!
Friendly staff ! Great pace m... greens and fairways well maintained!
Old & Experienced
My First round of gplf was summer of 1965at Green Knoll. Now 55 years later this course os old & experienced.
That is a great quality.
The course is better now than ever before. Fairways, greens, rough, and tees are in great shape.
Personally I think #8 & #15 are the 2 best holes out there. Greens rolled great, true, and excellent shape
Reasonably priced, get out and play here
Good course condition in the fall
The golf course is in excellent shape. Green is fast.
Fun, good walking course
This course is a lot of fun. Many hole requires thinking ahead about where to put your tee shot so you have a clear shot for the green with your second shot and many green require being smart about where you hit your approach, especially 5, 6 and 8 because of water. Many teeshots are blind, so it helps to play with someone who's played the course before. Bugs are an issue so bring spray or do what I do a smoke a big fat cigar!
Easy walking and fast play
The bugs made it a miserable round. Even the insect repellent didn’t work.
If you can live with being eaten by bugs then book it.
Otherwise stay away.
Green Knoll greens are in amazing shape! So fast!!!
Great round today. The course is in exceptional shape. The greens were incredibly fast.
This course is very challenging,if you try and force some difficult shots you can get into trouble very easily.
First time playing this course. Could not believe how well maintained it is. Fairways in great shape and the greens were fantastic ! And this was after a heavy rainstorm. The Starter and Staff were very friendly and informative. I look forward to playing this course again and will definitely recommend it to everyone.
Good day out
There are enough holes that require a good placement to make your next shot count. It's a very nice course and usually fun to play. Greens are good and the fairways were in good shape. Rough is tough to play out of so I guess the idea is don't hot in the rough. Simple approach isn't it?
Still challenging as I remember...
It has been a year since I played this course and quickly reminded how it can turn on you if you don't bring driving accuracy to the course. Each hole is unique in its own way to create a challenge and that's what makes this course interesting. The course is maintained well both fairways and greens. Some tricky greens dependant on pin placing on that day...reading green sometimes confusing which way it breaks. The green speed is decent with a slight variation in speed. I would love to see faster green to make it even more interesting. Many holes have fairway undulation and having to deal with the ball either below or above your feet. Of course not to be disappoint you the front 9 has a number of holes with water hazards come into play. Definitely take few more rounds to be familiar with the course to end with a good round for the day.
