About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 70
Length 5840 yards
Slope 124
Rating 68.2

Hillsborough Country Club is tucked away amongst the foothills of the Sourland Mountains. The golf course overlooks the beautiful Amwell Valley, sprawling across lush rolling hills gently sprinkled with mature trees. The par-70 layout is player friendly enough for all skill levels, it is even gentle enough for beginners. While it may not be what you're looking for if you want a long and challenging test, it's great for a casual round with a few tricky surprises. Accuracy will be generously rewarded but the golf course isn't overly punishing if you're slightly errant. Golfers will come across a fair amount of strategically placed sand traps as well as the occasional water hazard. In addition to the course, you can get even more short game practice in on Hillsborough Country Club's practice chipping and putting greens and there is also a driving range available.

I have no idea who would ever give this place a 4 or 5 star review. Was by far the worst course I have played all year. Tee boxes are basically crabgrass, bunkers have no sand only stones and the fairways were completely patchy. Very short course and barely a need for a driver. If you want my opinion drive 10 minutes and play neshanic.

Fun course

The course is relatively a short course and the condition of the course is generally excellent. The fairways and greens are in very good condition, the tee boxes could be better. Greens are well maintained, fast and interesting breaks.

This course is great to help improve on'e's game.. It's very possible to be on the green in 2 for most par 4 and definitely on 3 for all par 5s. The most important thing is course management and this is an excellent course to help you realize that you do not have kill the ball. It was a fun round and would play here again.

Fun But Challenging

I really enjoyed this course. Pace of play was outstanding. Not overcrowded. Greens were soft but very very fast. Almost unplayable fast. There were a few challenging holes were accuracy is very important. Over all this was a very enjoyable course to play. I would recommend it, however probably not for a novice golfer.

Challenging and beautiful!

What more could you ask for! This course is gorgeous, with some of the best course views in NJ. Greens are true, challenging, and well maintained. You can tell the greens keepers care. Club house is old school, unpretentious, and the crew are cool dudes. The back nine is one of the best. Thanks for the awesome round.

Hasn`t changed in 35 years

not sure who rated this course 4 & 5 stars but they must not get out much. Course was in poor shape. greens were bumpy and slow with 5 types of grass. bunkers had no sand in them...rough hadn`t been cut in who know how long making finding your ball difficult. course had standing water everywhere(rained day before) I played it 35 years ago...it ill be another 35 before I play it again
