Length 6679 yards
Slope 127
Rating 72.1

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.

Not good

Course is somewhat of a mess. Certainly not worth $50 on a Friday afternoon. Fairway doesn’t really exist. Good luck with the aeration piles if you’re on the fringe, etc.

Great Course!

Even though it was early in the season and many people are complaining you have to remember its April. I’ve played this course in July and August and this course never disappoints. The fairways are big and the island par 5 is my favorite! Will be playing this course often!

STAY AWAY !!!!!

5 years ago i said i would never play here again it was so bad ....well for $18 i thought i would give it another shot..it had to improve over 5 years...HAH !...put our clubs on the cart and started to drive and the whole back of the cart came apart and down went the clubs still attached to the straps and plastic...not a good start....tee boxes were bad...couldn't distinguish between fairways and rough...bare spots and clumps of grass on every hole...fallen trees and branches everywhere....most traps were unplayable....rotten and uneven wooden foot bridges were dangerous...thought we were going to fall in mucky whatever....the only thing good about the day was the pace of play...there was no one else on the course !!!!

Course has nice layout, but is in bad shape

Played this course many years ago and always enjoyed it. Evidently it has been allowed to go downhill over the years. Hopefully there is the will and funds to bring it back to its former glory. I will not play there again unlless the conditions become much improved.

Challenging layout, great price

I hadn't played Old Orchard in many years and though early in the season it was in pretty good shape and very playable because we had pretty dry weather for the past week. Some of the holes proved very challenging, especially the Par 3s and the 'Island' hole, where you have to know is coming. You really cant hang out there after golf because the bar facility looks geared for banquets and such. There are other options very closeby after golf as well, such as Monmouth Park, for sports betting and horse racing and the beach scene at the Jersey Shore.

Enjoyable round.

The layout of the course is very good. The greens were in good shape for so early in year. Traps has very good sand
and were playable, some traps needed work. Fairways need work and were wet on a few holes. All in all, it was a pleasurable round - played in a little over 3 hours and enjoyed the round.

Course was one of the few that was not cart path only. Its a nice course but the weather conditions that day were cold and windy. Most of the course was in nice shape for the winter only a few holes had some bad conditions.

What I expected

January golf on the east coast. It was wet. A lot of rain In The area recently left some major muddy spots, but to be expected. Greens were pretty decent there were two cups in each green which was bizarre. A few course layout head scratchers but all in all it was a good value and a fun day.
