Opened in 1929, Old Orchard Country Club has a classic design with challenges that stand up to modern golf courses. Throughout the course, you'll see traces of the site's former use as a farm. Ancient apple trees from the original orchard frame many of the holes. The diverse layout will test you with a variety of different shots but the gently rolling terrain makes for an easy walk. Skill and strategy will be generously rewarded but it's not an overly punishing layout for the high handicapper. Old Orchard's greens play true and fast and they are often flanked with strategically positioned bunkers. A stream wanders through the golf course, coming into play on several holes. Golfers will face a tricky island green on the par-5 seventh hole as well as an almost-island green on the par-4 13th.

Expensive for below average

If you’re looking to get out there late afternoon, work on some shots and take your time this is where you want to go. Conditions for the price are absurd, I’ve played on courses that charge 50$ and every hole and green is well kept and phenomenal condition. Only course I have ever been to that doesn’t have a fairway, 50% of the greens are in below average conditions. Dont mind playing late afternoon for very cheap, but if youre looking to play a good round save your money for somewhere else. You will be severely disappointed to overpay for this course.

Course condition

Golf course not in good shape tees greens bunkers absolutely terrible I will not play it again. With a little tender loving care it could be a very nice place to play. It is apparent the greens superintendent does not have much interest in conditions around course it’s time to get out the Rake and clean up

Old Orchard

Played here many times over many years and it is consistent. With a hot deal it is worth it but I would not pay full price. I know it is late in the year and long greens would be fine but there are many patches of missing green. The fairways are similar with many bare or crabgrass patches.

Much improved

Played course earlier in the season. It was in awful condition.Much better now, but the bunkers still need some work. The course design is from a past era and would be one of the better places to play in the central NewJersey area if the conditions werebrought up to snuff.

Good round of golf

Before playing this course I read the reviews. Most were negative l. This is a nicely designed golf course. Opened in the 1920s the course is wide open well maintained and challenging. Most fairways are green and gut short. The tee boxes are flat and clean and most greens are fast, with a few exception. We played after a rainy day resulting in water filled or hard pack mud bunkers. The bunkers need improvement. Over all a good value at $33. Enjoyed the day

Diamond in the rough

I had a great round. Loved the course layout. The staff were the friendliest you'll find anywhere. Conditions were good although a bit cool until the sun was a bit higher in the sky. Course is in really good shape right now. Top to bottom. Fairways good. Tee boxes good. Greens good. A bit slower greens than the most pristine courses but you'll appreciate that on the few steep ones. The island green is special and my favorite hold in NJ by far. It's a special challenge par 5 which you cannot get elsewhere.

Great deal

Let me start by saying we got a hot deal at 15 bucks. The course is pretty much wide open. THe greens rolled nice, not fast and not slow . Just right. Some of the holes leave you scratching your head on the design, but the second time playing you will know the quarks.

Fun course, great potential!

As someone who played this course a few times a month throughout the season due to its proximity, I have to say it has really improved a lot since the summer. The last few rounds were great! The grass was cut perfectly, tee boxes were fresh, and the greens were smooth. Over the summer the course was admittedly playing very rough. The grass was long, many burnt out greens, and the sand traps were mostly dirt or hard clay, and I would lose balls in the fairway unless I was standing over them. There are still a couple bunkers that need attention, but the rest of them have been worked on and have fresh sand. The course looked good!

There is some upkeep that could to be done to polish up grounds. The bridges and bulkheads are older and worn down, some of the ball cleaners are falling apart, and there is a spot or two with exposed equipment, but apart from that this course is really fun to play and I will continue to play it. The island hole (7th) is still one of my favorites to play, and the stream running through the course offers a challenging hazard that cannot be ignored when choosing your club.

Beautiful course

Colts Neck GC is a very fair course. Well maintained greens and sand traps and just enough water to keep you honest.
Staff was great.
Looking forward to my next round there.
