Rating 71.7

Spooky Brook Golf Course in Somerset is a player-friendly course that is perfect for beginners. It offers just enough of a challenge but it still allows you some room for error. At 6,655 yards from the back tees, the golf course is relatively short but the greens, tees, and fairways offer plenty of room. The mostly flat terrain makes for an enjoyable walk and it's also wide open. While the golf course may not be the most formidable test, it does have a few challenges in store. Water has a presence throughout the course, especially on the back nine. Whether or not you are looking to hone your skills or if you want a casual round, the well maintained golf course appeals to any skill level. In addition to the course, Spooky Brook G.C. also has a driving range that you can use to warm-up.

The grounds keepers do a GREAT job keeping this course playable. All the rain wind and cold temps doesn’t seem to matter. The course is clean and pretty smooth!!!
One note to all golfers out there....REPAIR YOUR DIVIT MARKS....

Excellent flat course

Excellent non tricky course
First nine are challenging and reasonably layed out to provide moderate challenging game
Back Nine are much more challenging with some interesting holes.
Staff are super friendly
You can also pay $6 and get a small basket of balls to warm up.

Pretty Bland

Wide open and straight away. Conditions were good especially with all the rain we have had. Greens were good even though they aerated last week, just slow.
No WOW factor here.

This course is in excellent condition

No complaints at all. Teed off on time,never had to wait as we moved at our own pace. Tee boxes,fairways and greens were in excellent shape.. there was water in some sand traps but considering the recent rain this was to be expected. I would definitely play here again and recommend it to others.

Great NJ Course

Second time I have played Spooky Brook. Course is kept in excellent condition, greens were good. Staff is friendly and helpful. It is slowly becoming one of my favorites as the pace of play is excellent at 3:30-4 for 18 holes. Fairways are forgiving yet still challenging. Enjoyable course to play. I would recommend it.

Pleasant straightforward course

When you need a course that is not going to beat you over the head for every mistake but yet still be well maintained and run, then Spooky Brook is for you. Wide fairways, fair greens and only a bunker here and there to avoid. You can still lose a golf ball here or there but you have to work to do so. Great pace of play as well.
