Good round

Lakewood cold course is one of the oldest golf courses in the country. This New Jersey golf course is very well maintained, and as a result in excellent condition. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are beautiful. At $28 including the cart this is an excellent value. The course is long 2 par 5 and challenging but not overwhelmingly difficult for the average golfer. I have played this course several times but not recent. So when I played oct 1 I was please to see many improvements since the last time I played Lakewood.

Course has some simple and some quirky holes.
The course is in pretty good condition. They have
snacks at the 10th hole. Over all pace of play was

Great deal

Course was in very good shape. Only complaint would be some interesting pin positions on 2 or 3 holes. Besides that, good spot for golf.

Quirky Course

Great value for the money. Course has some quirky holes including double tree in the middle of a fairway, blind shot to a 20 yd raised green & extreme dogleg hole making three quarters of a circle to the par 5 green! Conditions of fairways & greens were better than average. Overall pace of play was adequate. An enjoyable day on the links...

Nice course, rangers were MIA

Had a 10:48 tee time. Figured the course would be pretty busy but when showing up, not as packed as I’d imagined. The course was in good shape, tough greens but kind of monotonous. There were 2 groups ahead of us from the start, but we ended up getting caught up at every teebox. The rangers were not around to keep the pace of play, leading to the group in front of us taking their sweet time to play. They blamed the group ahead of them, but aside from that group, they had multiple holes open ahead of them. The rangers were not around to keep the pace of play, which ended up creating multiple groups stuck at tee boxes. Aside from the pace of play, it was a good round.

Fun day

Overall decent day besides the lady working the front desk. Gave me a problem about being 20 mins early to check in. Made me and another guy wait 10 mins then come back to pay. We did and then got out, didn’t catch anyone in front of us until the 16th hole. 3 hour round course was decent couldn’t putt on 12 due to swarming wasps/hornets not sure but it looked like everyone was skipping it.

First visit

Ok condition Greens were nice not fast but rolled well. Tees a little rough but that really doesn't matter much. Fairways were pretty wide might have to roll the ball in some spots to get a lie. Had one really goofy hole that was a complete horseshoe. Otherwise pretty straight forward. I would play it again.

Nice course

The course way shorter than the scorecard showed. 320-330 years par 4s. Very hot day so the course wasn’t busy. Played in 4 hours as a threesome with a fast playing foursome in front of us. Strange greens, Tough pin placements and some greens had hidden valleys in the middle. 16 was a very odd hole. If your first time playing you will be confused how to play it.
I’m slightly upset we paid more via golf now than I would have if I just called the course.
But I will certainly make the hour trip and play here again

Hi, Dale. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for the 4 stars! We understand you had some questions about pricing. We utilize a dynamic pricing model which means our tee time prices often fluctuate, impacted by things such as weather, competition, local events (such as college football) and more. The varying price structure allows you the option to choose the time and rate which works best for you. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the rest of your round and we hope to see you again soon! Thank you for playing Lakewood Country Club.
