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.

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.

Fun but easy course

First time playing Spooky Brook, and it’s safe to say it won’t be my last time either. Booked a Golf Now hot deal the day of, showed up at the course and got out ten minutes early. Course was in very good condition, greens were a bit slow. The layout is pretty easy, with lots of straight holes and the course isn’t too long. Only hit driver on the 4 par 4’s, didn’t need it anywhere else. Overall good experience.

Forgiving and well maintained

1. They have a range to warm up and a great putting green for pitching/chipping and dialing in your stroke pre-round. Nice for a public facility.

2. Course is forgiving and fair.

3. There really isn’t one hole that impresses, so overall average in that regard.

4. The course is in great shape.

5. Easy to get out and play this one pretty quick!
