Typical winter golf, the fairways and greens were frozen, but they were clean of debris and goose droppings. The ball bounced straight on the frozen fairways and the greens for the most part were even and ran true.

Course was in good condition considering all the rain we’ve had recently. Finished our round in 3 hours which is unusual for this course since they book tee times 8 minutes apart which generally leads to very slow pace of play.

There are leaves all over the course. Having played fall golf on a number of courses none of them were like Cranbury.

Just way too many leaves, on fairways, in the rough and on the greens.

Many bunkers were FULL of water. Unplayable.

I’ll return to a Cranbury but not until next spring,!

This course is on the shorter side and probably more for the beginner golfer. Played early on a Sunday morning and it seemed like everyone there was a regular at that time. The layout is solid....a good mix of different holes. The greens were average and the fairways and tees I would have to give a below average. But lots of courses in NJ are having the same moisture problems this year. The starter and the check-in people were very friendly and welcoming.

Played this course over 20 years ago and remember a perfect day with excellent conditions. Arrived for our 10 AM tee time and found out the course was still closed due to frost. That backed up about 50 or more golfers. Our delay was over an hour. The starter did not offer a back 9 start despite our offer to just play 9 holes. Most of the tee boxes were bare and many bunkers had no trace of sand. Lots of bare spots around greens. Some of the cart paths were in awful shape. On the plus side, the restaurant had a good menu and food. Service was very good. With many well maintained courses in the area, no need to return to this dog track.

This place used to be good for a nice, fairly easy round. A year ago the course was in wonderful shape. Now??? Not even close. They're now on their 3rd manager since the previous manager resigned last November, and the place is getting run down quickly. The bar/restaurant has become mediocre at best - and the food used to be outstanding.

The golf course though is really beaten up. Fairways have large (and growing) grassless patches. Tee boxes are fair at best. Most of the greens were in decent to good shape, but too many have clear circles/markings from previous hole placements.

So much potential, but it just isn't good right now. Hopefully the latest manager will kick it up a notch or three
