Won't play again

Would have been nice to know we had to play the front 9 twice. I don't know how the back 9 is but the front was boring x2. Won't be going back

Back 9 is in horrible condition

Front 9 was in good shape but back 9 is probably the worst shape/condition I have ever witnessed on a golf course. Management should close down back 9 and wait for weather to get better. , No difference between hitting ball on a fairway vs roughwater puddle, 17 holes was under water. It’s obvious course does not drain well . if we had known we would have just played front 9 twice
Anyways I was Very disappointed :(

What's not to like

Call me crazy but I thoroughly had a good time.Tees, ,fairway,s aprons and greens were in good shape. I especially like the layout and not having to crush your shot over some hazard. Yea, some of the holes in the back were a tad soggy but not so much as to ruin the experience. Upon reading the reviews I was expecting the worst but I honestly can't complain about the conditions nor the nice people who are employed there. I'll be back soon.

Pathetic condition - DO NOT PLAY

Front 9 was maybe ok. Greens are not - big divots are caused with any great shot. The back 9 is in awful shape. Last time for me. I’m going to ask for a refund from my CC - services not rendered!! :)

This is a Country Club?

First time playing here - the course is an embarrassment and should change its name to exclude the words Country Club. The course has no irrigation system and all the fairways are a baked mess, hardly any grass to hit off of...a real shame.

Front 9 fairways were fair, back was poor..... and it’s a shame.... the course design is decent and the greens were good.... not great, but a solid good.....I’m not an arborist or a tree hugger but I like trees.... seems that some of the huge old oaks need to be trimmed back and or removed to nice some breathing room and sunlight to the fairways.... you need to look for grass on many fairways on the back 9.... I understand there is a drainage issue there and it’s clearly evident.... too bad because I liked the layout...... hire some nice people with a personality....though the starter was great.

Pathectic stay away

The ciurse is a joke, so poorly maintained, all the fairways are grass less, the greens are bad and on top of that the staff is unfriendly. Over crowded. Should change the name from princeton country club to pathetic crap club never again, infact i am thinking of disputing my charges as the service for money was substandard.
