Type Public/Municipal
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.

Great Value

I enjoyed my round at Quail Brook. The course was in very good condition and was a great value for a Golf Now Hot Deal. Started on the back and pleased with course conditions. Greens in good shape and a good layout, albeit not overly challenging. I will be back.

New Forward Tee Locations Improves Quail Brook

Quail Brook is my favorite Somerset County Course. The course is always in great condition, the staff is friendly but most importantly the layout if fun because of the variety of holes. There are some long holes that are a challenge for shorter hitters or beginners (from the front tees) but the course management team has recently made changes that make par a "reality" on the longer holes from the forward tees. In the last few weeks (as of this writing 6/30/2018), Hole 5 and Hole 13 forward tees were moved up about 40 yards. In the past, even with a good drive it was hard to get on these PAR 4 holes in regulation. Now, with a good drive and second shot you can get on in two. Previously, the forward tees were moved up on Hole 12 (PAR 4) and Hole 14 (PAR 5). Hole 12 is a fun par hole because if you get your drive on top of (or even better, over) the hill then it's an easy approach shot on to the green (but you need a straight approach shot or you could end up in the bunker on the left or front right). Hole 14 (which is a dogleg right) is still an excellent challenge because your second shot really needs to set you up for a good approach shot to a green that is down the hill, protected by bunkers on the left and right and if you go long there is junk on the back of the green. The green does run back to front so that helps but do try to hit your shot below the hole location. Quail Brook has always been a great course but these new tee locations makes it a very fair challenge. You still need to make great shots to par the holes but at least now good shots are rewarded.

Hot Afternoon at nice course

I always like the course. It would be challenged if you don't hit the fairway. I always enjoy the course even it is over 90 degree.
