About

Type Public
Par 71
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.

Beautiful summer afternoon

Played this course for the first time and was very impressed. The course was in great condition, pace of play was fast and the staff were very friendly. A few challenging holes and some great scoring opportunities. Will definitely be back. Worth the cost of admission.

Not worth the money

Over priced. No amenities outside of 3 vending machines that didn't work properly. $34 for a cart after paying fees. Most fairways were well kept, 4 of the last 6 greens were not well kept. Will not be returning.

Green Knoll

This is my previous home course. I used to play there at least once a week. Unlike usual public courses this course has a very interesting lay out. Staff is very friendly. Course is always well maintained. It's a fun course to play on.

A day with firm fairway and green

It is the first time that the green and fairway is so firm,which ball will run extra 10-20 yards. The rough is very spotty. The course condition is not as good as before.

Green Knoll is in great shape

The fairways were lush and the greens were in outstanding shape and the rough is getting thick. The wetness of early May is gone. Premium placed on hitting the fairways.

Wet weather

Excellent county public course

Always enjoy playing here. Looks easy, but hilly.
Even with a short mowing staff, seems to always
be in good shape for the most part.
No snack bar. Pleasant staff. Great prices for
seniors. Has a 9 hole rate. No driving range to
speak of ( Pitch and putt course used at times
for driving range).

Nice Course

There were some sprinkles in the air on a cloudy day but over-all the weather was okay. Being that the past month or so has been very wet, especially the weekends, one could understand the damp areas surrounding the hazards as being prone to a lost ball or two due to plugging. Some of the sand traps were flooded too. The traps that were not flooded were in very good shape with good playable sand.
Fairways were in good shape and the greens in great shape. Since it is not summer, the annoying gnats of summer were not a factor. The deer were out in abundance and did their thing without disrupting anyone's round of golf.
Overall a good experience for the year's first round which, with a 2:20 p.m. tee time, took 3.25 hours to play.

Course is always fun and Challenging.
The fairways and tee boxes were in great condition.
My only complaint was the Greens.
They were terrible!!! Then were not cut or rolled.
Every putt bounced. Not one true roll. It made the day very frustrating when you hit great lines and your putts have no chance.

Great Municipal Course

The courses overall condition and especially the greens were in great shape. Perfect roll on the greens. Bunkers all had nice sand in them and the fairways and tee boxes were mostly in good condition (a few dry or fungus spots on a few holes). Enjoyable variety of holes and nice scenery.

Beware- Cart $17 per person!!!!

Their website says a cart is $17. When we got there they charged us per person $17x4. What a rip off. They are completely vague on the website and it does not specify per person. We all decided to walk instead and rented a walking cart for $5. The cart was a total POS- the wheels were wobbly, there was no strap, and my bag rolled off once. Otherwise the course was great and the staff was nice. Only a good deal if you plan to walk or have your own cart.
