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.

Course in great shape

This is first time playing this course and was really surprised course is in great shape. Fairways are very green and rough is not that bad. The greens are in nice shape. The only snacks or drinks were in vending machines. No snack bar. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Layout is not bad and course is very open in case of errant shots. No rangers so we had slow groups in front of us and we a long 18. I would come back.

Good for practice

Decent layout with fairly open fairways and rough. Greens were aerated and have wished I knew before I got there. Overall still decent track and well maintained.

People working there are really nice and friendly. The course was in great shape. The greens were a little fast. Pace of play was fast - finished 18 rounds in under 4 hours …

The course is in fine shape.
Hope to be back , hope the weather holds.
Leaves scattered around starting to be an issue, and could be a negative factor going forward

Nice day

Played here many times. The tee boxes and greens were in great condition. Only negative was around greens a lot of burnt out areas, that made it hard to chip.

Quality Golf Experience

The course was in very good condition. From other reviews I read I expected a pancake flat course, but it was not. Had variations in elevation and alignment that made play interesting.
Clubhouse is simple but adequate although no food service.
I am a high handicapper and the more open layout was somewhat forgiving although there are challenges.
I would be happy to play here again.

very nice

Course was in excellent condition. Fairways were green and soft from the rain. Greens were in great shape Some of the best I've seen this year. Bunkers had sand in them but seemed a little firm, maybe from the overnight rain. Cost was awesome...$17.00 with a cart. Definitely play the course before the warm weather fades away, I will be back, worth the trip.

Tee Boxes needed to be cut, fairways had a lot of crab grass. greens were in good condition but slow. and my fault for not seeing fine print on Golf Now that cart wasn't included in price. But 4 other times playing here cart was included in price. Not worth $60 on a week day to play. Much better courses in area same price or less.

Slow play

Front nine played quickly but got stuck on the back nine. Eventually there was me waiting on the tee box as well as the foursome in front of me, a foursome in the fairway, and one on the green, as well as one on the next tee box. There was no winning

Great conditions

Spooky Brook is a great course. Most holes are long and straight but features and a few dog legs keep it interesting. Greens and fairways are in great shape. All the Somerset County courses are great and spooky is no exception.
