Course was in very poor condition

All of the greens were cut but not sanded or rolled. Impossible to putt. Management did not inform us of the condition before we booked the round. To charge us the full price to play under such conditions is very poor business practice. I guess to them Greed is Good.

The Grass is too long

Out of 18 t-boxes 14 of them, the grass was too high, the rough grass was very long. Perhaps they should hire a few more grounds people so us golfers can enjoy the game. I played Cape May National the day before and the grass was the proper height.

Disappointing

Played this course twice last week. I've played it at least 2x/year for the last 15 years on vacation. I couldn't help but notice that the price went up significantly this year (particularly since I paid for the entire foursome-my family). I figured that they must have made some real improvements in the course to up the fee to $96/player. When I started playing, not only did I not see any improvements, but the course was in the worst shape I had ever seen it in. The tee boxes were bad, full of crabgrass. The greens needed to be rolled. I kept hitting bumps in the greens that knocked my putts off course. When I mentioned this to the starter, he made some lame excuse about the weather. I live, work and play golf in New Jersey. This course doesn't measure up any more. The lunch facility was fairly good.

excellent as usual

I play here every summer when I come down to the beach and this course never disappoints, always in great shape. The greens are always slow which would be my only complaint.

Not worth my time , money or agrivation

I don’t know why I go to this course. I give it a try a few times each summer thinking things might improve and it NEVER does !! The pro shop employees are less than friendly and that same attitude carries out to the starters. They seem almost annoyed by your presence and I’m a local resident!! I can’t imagine how they must treat folks visiting on vacation! The course looks very well kept. Very green but it’s an illusion ! The fairways and greens are ALWAYS kept intirely too long which makes the greens unbearably slow . I guess they’re afraid to cut them at a reasonable length fearing they could burn out The fairways are always wet no matter how much rain the area gets. For any player that is hoping to enjoy your round be prepared to be disappointed. It’s too bad. The layout is not bad but the fairway and green conditions force you to Pick the ball in the fairway instead of hitting with a descending blow and putting on greens that slow is just a joke! My advice is once you’re on the green, take a 2 putt and move to the next hole. A better choice would be don’t play here at all and head up to the Egg Harbor area and play one of the many really good courses in that area. It’s not very far and we’ll worth the money and time. Just my 2 cents.

Nice Round.

The course was in very good shape and very well-maintained. I had the good fortune of playing with three strangers who were delightful. My tee time was 10:23 AM and was disappointed that the course restaurant was not serving yet. But I had a very lovely day and will be returning next year no doubt.
