About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6624 yards
Slope 116
Rating 71.1

Former president of the PGA of America, Leo Fraser, designed the 18-hole public course at the Mays Landing Golf Club with both advanced and beginning golfers in mind. Touted as the "best birdie for the buck," the Mays Landing golf course provides a great value for all golfers. The course was meticulously designed over 175 acres of beautiful pineland with scenic tree-lined fairways.

Mays Landing Golf Club provides an experience similar to one at a private country club with its excellent service and amenities including a pro shop, restaurant, and PGA instructors on site. On hot days they even have cool towels for you and they always have roaming beverage carts. The course is 6,633 yards at the longest tees, playing to a par of 72.

Great Day

Course condition was average, but it was a beautiful day for golf. The staff is always friendly and the pace of play was exceptional. Greens good. Will definitely be back.

Good Course but slow Day

As always the course has a great and challenging track, but conditions could have been better. Biggest issue was pace of play. For some reason they were sending out only twosomes and we were constantly waiting on shots. What should have been a 4-4.5 hours round was closer to 5.

Bad conditions

Fairways were either thick crab grass or mud.. The course was in terrible condition. Paid full price for this waste of time, should have paid fall rates. The greens were in good condition but extremely slow. I haven't played this course since Sandy, I now remember why. Avoid this course, better choices can in this area.

One of the worst

Terrible conditions. They have lost this course. Very hard ground and crabgrass just about everywhere. There is more crabgrass than grass in the fairways. The greens are in rough shape as well, and a lot of pitch marks that many "golfers" don't fix. Crabgrass around the greens made it very difficult to putt from the fringe or chip. The bright spot - there were a lot of water jugs on the course, which was great on a hot day. Final analysis, go play elsewhere. Oh, did I mention the crabgrass?

Crab grass

80% of the fairways were crabgrass. 10% fairway grass. 10% dirt.

I guess most other golfers new of the condition because I was able to play in three hours

Still needs lots of work

The course is in very bad shape. Most fairways have little or no grass, except crabgrass and weeds. Greens are slow
and in very bad shape. We had to move our balls on the greens to find grass to putt on. Most bunkers had grass and weeds growing in them.

The course is laid out very nicely, the staff friendly and pace of play good because there were not many golfers playing the course.

They need to invest money to improve the course to make it competitive with the other courses in the area.

What a shame

It’s a shame that the course is in such bad shape. I’m sure with the play the course gets more funds should be put in upkeep. Please water the fairways and greens.

Got worse instead of better

I played this course about 2 months ago and was pleased to see the improvements. I know it has been hot but the conditions that are now present are terrible and due to a lack of maintenance. When an elderly starter is dragging hose to water you know something is wrong.
Fairways are bare and what is not bare has crabgrass.
Tee boxes were crusty and loaded with crabgrass.
The greens were crusty in a lot of spots and a few were totally gone and were sand capped.
Some spots around the greens had real grass but was in dire need of being mowed. Sand traps were a brown hard sand, not very accommodating if you were in a trap which needed to be raked and manicured.
There was one worker on the course cutting the so called fairways around 4 pm. and that was all of the maintenance we saw.
There was no drinking water on the course.
Our cart broke down on the third hole and the group behind us also had a cart break down.
At best this was a $20.00 course due to the conditions.
I do not want to hear conditions were due to extreme weather as I drove past 2 other course to get there and they appeared to be in great shape.
Next time I will use google earth to check out conditions.

Play in your backyard instead!

The course has seriously decreased in quality over the years and this summer has been particularly poor. Keep in mind I have gone twice this summer only on a hot deal ($35 total) and I still believe I overpaid. 3 greens are completely submerged in sand making putting virtually impossible and the remaining greens you are dealing with dead patches that they kindly spray painted green or aerated very poorly. Throughout the greenery that would be labeled as “fairways” and “fringes” you can find more sand, crabgrass, and dead patches. Also, if you are not lucky enough to lay up on the “fairway”, good luck finding your ball and hitting out of hard sand and rocks that will do some damage to your clubs. Im no golf snob by any means, just a local guy looking for a fun round, but the state of this course today was so unacceptable that i wont be returning for quite awhile. My recommendation is that you pay 10-15extra bucks for a way better experience within the vicinity, both course and player wise.
