Quail Brook Golf Course in Somerset is one of central New Jersey's top public courses. The challenging design is a favorite amongst local golfers. The layout has a diverse mix of holes, some of which are spacious and wide-open and others that are rolling and tight. Although the golf course may seem short at 6,630 yards from the back tees, don't be fooled by the yardage. The course can feel much longer thanks to the hilly terrain. The front nine has subtler undulations while the back nine is dramatically hilly, which makes it a tough course to walk. Quail Brook Golf Course's undulating fairways lead to challenging sloped greens that are framed with strategically placed bunkers. There aren't too many opportunities for driving, but your short game will definitely get a workout.

Good golf experience

Excellent practice facility. Greens in tremendous shape especially given that it’s early spring . Fast deceptive greens . Course layout is traditional woodland without being boring. It boasts a variety of holes, but doesn’t get too cute . The tips are a challenge even for a single digit handicapper, high handicappers will get plenty to deal with from the whites. An above average track in above average condition.

Good value

Even though this round was a hot deal, I have played this course many times before for under $60.00 even during peak times. The course has been around for a while so it does show its age in some respects but in my option, the greens are the best of any course I play one NJ. Fairways and tees are also well maintained. Bunkers could use some help.

Course in good condition, greens are rolling nice. Staff could be friendlier especially towards Golfnow customers. Cart path still in bad shape although some parts have been recently paved.

Quirky course

Of the 5 public SOMERSET county courses this one ranks behind neshanic valley. The greens are well kept and fairways are decent.

Ambiance is a bit lacking and course is a bit short for long hitters but overall decent course.

If you are expecting a country club feel this is not the place, for that I recommend Neshanic Valley, Heron Glen or Royce Brook.

nice course

Course was in great condition. Relatively short course but requires your attention on every hole. Greens were very nice and ran true. Fairways were in good shape. Tee boxes were, for the most part in nice shape. Impressed with the overall condition of the course. Play it if you can, it's worth it.

should not have walked it!

Great course. Very challenging from blue tees for this 17 hc, but they are the right ones. I walked and that's a mistake on the back 9, but I made it and really loved the course. good condition, far better than other local tracks I've seen recently.

Beautiful course

I was very impressed with the condition of the entire course. The tee boxes, fairways, rough and greens were all in perfect condition. The sand traps were uniform from hole to hole. Not a difficult course but very enjoyable to play.
