Great course to play.
The course has really come along way.Fairways and greens are in great shape.The new owners have done an exceptional job in getting the course back on shape.Great course
Improving every day
Consider this my local course. The new owners are consistently improving the course as well as the pro shop. Im a sucker for new golf hats and they have added nearly 2 dozen different local club hats since the beginning of the summer. Also the bar always has a rotating stock of great beers on tap.
The weather was great
We were 25 min late due to an online booking that never got to their system. That also created slow play. It was a 5 hr round. Some greens are not good n a lot of rough needs work. A lot of the Sr tee boxes were just a cut out patch and not an actual tee box. But the price was good and u get what u pay for. But if I paid regular price at anytime, I wouldnt Have been too happy
Course had more weeds then my backyard. Also
It would have been cheaper to book direct with the course than through golf now. Ridiculous
It's getting better all the time
They are moving in the right direction, it won't happen overnight but everything is improving.I just hope they don't get too popular and price me out. if you haven't played here in awhile go back and see for yourself,' but don't pay the big big bucks just yet.
Not worth it -- not at all
There are so many decent courses to play in South Jersey that one has to wonder how it is that Centerton is even an option.
First, let's talk fees. We were a threesome. Two of my partners received a "2 for $61 special rate". I was charged the full $49 because I was a single, even though I was part of the threesome. Centerton could have extended the $31 rate to me, but chose not to. That's bad form, certainly not conducive to building good will.
So, what did I get for that $49? A course where every tee was so torn up and unlevel that it was difficult to find a spot where one could comfortably tee off. That is unacceptable at any course.
What else? 16 out of the 18 greens were in such a state of disrepair (huge sections of each green that are dug out, uneven, unkept) that you cannot expect the ball to roll evenly or fairly. It's unacceptable.
Bottom line, we went there because we'd heard if was "under new management" and had been "improved" since our prior visit several years ago. Well, it hasn't. It was worse.
Centerton, you've lost my business forever. Period. Full stop.
A $25 Course
You get what you pay for at this course. They are attempting to improve it. Greens were fairly good shape, tee boxes need a lot of work. Not a real challenging course. Mostly flat and relatively easy.
Nice people at the course both the workers and other players, but would not pay more than $25 to play.
The course has great potential.
The Fairways were in awful shape. They desperately need water. Most of the greens were in good shape.
The sand traps are pathetic. The sand trap at the green of the 6th hole had chunks of sod in it. Ridiculous especially on the Memorial day week end.
The course has a lot of potential. I hope everything is addressed soon.
New owners and already seeing some positive signs
My wife and I play this course for an affordable practice round. The layout is challenging enough but usually the conditions are par with the affordability. Got there and were greeted by very friendly staff who set us up in brand new golf carts. They just arrived. Greens were in decent shape and fast new flags in every hole. Work was being done on many of the sand traps. The course has a ways to go the fairways need water and the cart paths are bumpy and in need of maintaining but this was the most improvement I’ve seen in the last few years. Hope the new owners continue to work on it. It could be turned into a hidden gem.
New owners working hard.
We played this course again on Sunday, Lets start with the staff, They are all pleasant and helpful. The pace of play was fantastic, From my last review the rough has been cut, definitely helping pace of play as you don't have to search for your ball anymore. The fairways are filling at a nice rate, the rough was in really good shape since it was just freshly mowed with no leftover clippings. I have to say the sandtraps are in need of help. As for the greens they are coming along but im sure that it will just be a matter of time. Again i will continue to be honest with conditions and hope the new management continues to improve this course.
The best improvement since the smart phone
I have played this course many times over the past few years. It is no secret that this course needed improvements since then. Since the new owner, Mitch Primas, took over, the course has made very impressive improvements. The price is great, the staff- Thomas, Chad, Mick, and others are friendly and genuine. It is a pleasure to play here and I would recommend it to any golfer. The greens have gone from patches to near perfect in just five weeks. The bunkers are edged and fluffy as they should be. I will continue to play here and am proud to call a course that is 20 miles away from me my home course. Thank you Skitch for the great course l, and not so for your genuine personality that makes playing here an incredible experience.

One of the worst courses I have ever played. The fairway was like the rough at other courses. The green had craters all over them. Therefore, the ball bounced all over the place because the conditions did not allow the ball to roll. They had a high school shotgun match and a men’s league scheduled at the same time that we had a tee time. The pace of play was awful. This was worst golfing experience I ever had in about 15 years of playing golf.
Good value course
This course has potential. It just needs some loving and money to make it better. The staff does work hard but again needs financing to make this course better.
Played last Sunday, Staff was great to deal with, Now knowing this course has been ran down to the ground, we heard of new management and decided to give it a try. Tee boxes were ok, fairways and rough in decent shape, bunkers needed grooming and the greens just needed some time to fill in after being aerated All in all we were not unhappy actually were delighted that someone is trying to bring this old girl back to shape. we will play again and with more frequency. Best of luck to the new owners and continue the forward progress..
I haven’t played centerton since last season and then it was getting rough. What a pleasant surprise this time around! Greens were in great shape, fast and true. The fairways were good and everything was maintained. I look forward to playing here again soon.
The New Centerton
I am very excited about the new management company. Seem like great guys. I think they can make Centerton great again
