Played this course years ago when you had to play with a veteran. The course back then was in good shape and the military housing was in good shape. The military housing and the golf course or a mirror image of each other. The golf course is in horrible condition the military housing is even worse. I should’ve read the review from 11/09/2018. The review was correct the course is under maintenance but there are also two holes closed and two temporary greens and there is no mention of this anywhere before you play . The course on the day I played was very wet cartpath only so walking is an alternative. But before you do it be prepared for the amount of goose droppings all over the course! This had to be the worst condition course I’ve ever played and paid for !!!! If it was free I would stay away .
When you are using some temporary tee's and greens you should post an alert so customers know what to expect when they arrive. This is gonna be a great place one day, just not yesterday.
Conditions were not too good .
A lot of cart path only holes. Two temp greens. I enjoyed the course layout, I will try it again and give it another shot. Not worth playing now at full rate.
Work in progress
Many good things going on, but it is still a work in progress. Next year the course will start showing some rewards from the improvements. If you can find a deal online go for it, but the regular price is too high for the condition of the course. Will come back next year...
poorly kept course....greens ok
I played this past weekend and the course was pooooorly maintained. The fairway grass was so tall you couldn't find your ball on the fairway. Forget about the fescue. The greens were fair but the rest of the course was unplayable. For $75 you need to at least cut the fairway grass. I wouldnt want to play here again for the price and conditions.
Hole 11 &12 not really ready for play yet. Half the fairways had standing water due to the rain we had all week. THEY INSISTED my son wear a collard shirt. So had to buy one in pro shop.
Totally uncalled for considering course conditions and that there is no attire requirement when making reservations on GOLFNOW app.
Had fun good course to play, I’ll definitely play again.
Played here twice before 2 years ago n OK! New Owner, Sal M, builder n developer in Monmouth County supposedly has put millions into upgrading conditions and it shows! Fairway lush n NOT burnt out, greens were just fertilized which affected roll BUT in immaculate condition! Started at Monmouth County courses then Old Orchards 30yrs ago, then Bamm Holliow for 10 yrs,, this course is a winner! Only fault is some drainage issues that affect play but I believe will be addressed in the near future!
Worth playing at least once
Mixed results and the course needs some work on several holes.
Greens are excellent. They are in great condition (except for 17), putting speed is fast, and challenging. Great combination.
Fairways needs some work but overall in OK condition but the tee boxes are awful. Additionally a few very short holes that slow down the pace of play do to golfers going for the green!
Overall worth playing and the price was reasonable comparatively to other courses in the Monmouth county area.
What have you done!!
I have played this Tillinghast course many time in the past when it was owned and operated by Ft. Monmouth. It was $40 for 18 holes and another $10 for the cart. Since the Martelli group took it over, they removed more than 150 trees, all the bushes, and created a quarter mile walk from the parking lot to the pro shop/first tee!! All for a whopping $73 total!!! Did it occure to you that all the trees and bushes are what made the course challenging? The way the professional golf designer intended it to be! There is a reason builders build homes and not golf courses. I am a 17 handicap and shot an 82 on this new, wide open, Martelli design! So sad. Do yourself a favor, pay the fee for a county card and go play some real courses.
*** One more note that I can't ignore....The starter/Ranger.....AWESOME!!! One of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
At least the Martelli's got that right!!
Great improvements .
Vastly improved from previous years.
Greens are in great shape
I hear it’s getting better...
Played this course for the first time on 4th of July. It’s average at best but I hear they’re working on it so I may give it a try again next year. Too many better courses nearby to go back before then...
Since opening to the public Suneagles has been a nice place to play. What it lacked for condition was made up by access and the layout.
Now that there's a new owner, the conditions are greatly improved. It will take a few years to complete the restoration, but don't wait, play it now.
It may not be the classic Tillinghast courses of Wing Foot, Baltusrol, or Bethpage, but who gets to play those anyway? However, the layout is better than Forest Hills, Shackamaxon, or Suburban. All three are wonderful clubs with great Tillinghast designs, but Suneagles is more interesting.
The course is short, but the small undulating greens, with well places bunkers will challenge your approach shots, even with short irons.
If not for summer traffic on the Parkway, I'd play it more often. If you haven't yet do so. Be warned the 10th is playing from temp tees, doesn't ruin the experience, but some will be disappointed.
Hot day....good golf
94 degrees but that's ok...no one on the course...2 players riding took 3hrs...they are making a real effort to improve the course ...place looks much better than in the past....starter was super friendly
