About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 5574 yards
Slope 112
Rating 67.2

The standard 18-hole Green Tree Golf Course keeps in mind both skilled and inexperienced golfers. This public course has tight fairways lined with trees and greens of Rye Grass. The longest tees have a yardage of 5709, playing to a par of 70.

The golf course has three sets of teeboxes to provide an interesting game. There is also a driving range and practice green for beginners or those that would like some practice. The course is accessible from many major roads such as Routes 30 and 40 as well as the Atlantic City Expressway. The first shot is a difficult par-4 dogleg right that has water, bunkers, and heavy forest to look out for.

Great Course for the Money

Visiting Brigantine, and found this course on Golfnow.
Anyplace can offer a nice course for a bundle of money; I like the places where you can have a good time without breaking the bank. Tees and greens were in excellent condition; fairways were in good shape. An abundance of ponds and lakes made this course challenging, and yet fun.

A Great Bargin

I played the course for the first time in about 20 years and found it to be in better shape than before. The greens have improved vastly over what I remembered them to be. The fairways were in good shape and on occasion the trees prevented me from paring a couple of the holes. The pro shop is expertly manned and the pro is very willing to accommodate all the needs of his guests. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a good course at a reasonable rate.

Course was in horrible shape. Dried out. Patchy. Crab grass. County course but should have been in better shape. Shot here for old times sake. Started on this track years ago. But wont be back and dont suggest it unless it isnt a cent over $15.

Bargain golf

Course does need work but the greens are in decent shape and are rolling true. Tee box and fairways not so much but for $24 at 6:38am, it’s a bargain worth playing.

Great geeens !

This is a little gem of a course. It’s a short course but very difficult to drive many of the shorter par 4s. Definitely a shot makers course with fantastic greens ! The rest of the course is just so-so, but I will take great greens any day. Nice little challenge for the great price they charge

Calling this course a cow pasture would be an insult to cow pastures. The fairways and tee boxes are a combination of bare dirt, nut grass and crab grass. The greens are pockmarked and the traps have vegetation. While the staff is friendly, they are intrusive while one is playing. The course layout is quite short. Avoid this course.

You Can’t Go Wrong Playing Here!

I’ve played courses across the country as well as in other Countries and I still enjoy playing Greentree. The people are great. The PGA Professional, John Hammer, and his staff are awesome and always friendly. I really like the fact that they encourage younger kids to play the game of golf. My son is 11 years old and just starting to get involved in golf. He enjoys talking to Mr. Hammer when we go golfing and Mr. Hammer takes the time out of his busy day to talk to, and encourage, my son to play the game. He’s awesome. The Course, the employees are always working on and improving the course which is great. The course itself is challenging for any golfer, whether they’re a beginner like my son or for someone who has been playing golf for years, like myself. We look forward to playing this course each time we go and it’s also always enjoyable to see the many deer around holes 16 and 17 later in the day (see video). The price is extremely reasonable and you can’t go wrong with this course....and don’t forget to get a sub at the Sugar Hill Sub Shop on your way home. It’s right up the street on the way home!

Not there yey but great improvement

I have played this course a few years ago and stopped playing because the conditions were bad and at the time they charged more for an out of county resident.
Check in went smooth and the pro shop attendant was friendly. I was teamed up with another golfer and we breezed through the course. The greens were perfect. There was some clover and crabgrass in both the fairways and rough. The sand traps were OK. I will be back as it was a good test for the money.

If you are looking for a decent cheap not crowded 18 holes this is your course. Nothing to write home about but you can get through quickly. Do not expect to much else.

Nice Course

Short course that let's you use all your wedges and clubs down to 6 iron. Lots of dog legs and water. I love the course because it isn't all about pulling back and smashing a driver on every hole. You will use all your clubs. Greens are slower than most but some elevation changes and smaller sized greens make it still a challenge. Several reachable par 4's tempt you, but narrow openings and many trees prove smart play reaps better dividends. All in all a nice little gem with good value for the money.

You get what you pay for

Although the price was great, the course was not.

Not in very good condictioned.course is flat, no elevations. The third hole is 662=yards long and listed as
A par six from the white tees, 676 from the blues. Never seen this before. There is plenty of room to
shorten the hole to a normal distance par five like most courses. Most average golfers will have a hard time
With this hole unless they are long hitters. From what I observed most of their customers are not.

Pace was slow because they allowed a slow five some to play in front of a family of 10 who had three holes blocked
And wouldn’t’ allow any groups to play thru. No ranger was observed throughout the day.
