Length 6443 yards
Slope 125
Rating 70.8

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.

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

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.

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.

Like a day in the park

The greens were in good shape and the fairways were firm so there was a good roll out on the drives. It was great weather which made it all the better. I believe this is the next best course to neshanic in the Somerset system.
