Course needs better conditions to get a better review

Overall fairways were soft to muddy. Back nine was awful, lacked grass in the fairways. Bunkers were more Clay then sand . Flooded restroom in the club house, very dirty

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.

Course was a mess

Played this course for the first time today and I won’t be back. The front nine conditions were fair however the back nine was horrendous. The fairways were muddy and it smelled like a swamp. The starter wouldn’t allow us out early even though there was no one teeing off before us.

Unfortunately the back 4 holes are built on a “flood plain”. We have added drainage over the last 4-6 years and has worked out very well. We know it will flood, but when it does the water drains off the property very quickly and is usually playable 1-2 days later. The last two years the amount of rain we have gotten has been very tough for the back 9 nine to handle.

In regards to your tee time, if it was booked through GolfNow, we do try our best to keep the tee-off time close to the time booked whenever possible.

We appreciate your feedback and we hope you'll return under drier conditions in the future.

Under Water

We played after a VERY wet week, and the course was in very rough shape as it doesn’t drain well. We actually were told to play the front 9 twice! Because the back nine was “under water”!
Staff apologized, but no rain check was offered.
Also: they had NO bottled water for sale, and the on course water made my son sick!
Hope they read and fix the things within their control! Starter was friendly and personable!

Positive Experience

Typical muni course. Conditions were fairly good though obvious damage from a rainy Spring season. Greens were in very good condition. Teed off at 745 and played a full round in just over 4 hours.

Mercer County Booking System Needs to Be Fixed!!!!!

I am a Mercer County resident who booked my tee time through the Mercer County app. When I arrived at Princeton for my round I was told it was booked through Golf Now. I did not do this. The person in the pro shop made the proper adjustment to our fee. The Princeton course is not the best Mercer County course but it isn’t ok.

We play this coarse almost every Tuesday through the summer and the greens are the best in Mercer County and if the weather stays good the coarse can be very nice. The staff is very friendly.
