White Oaks Country Club is carved from the mature pinelands of Newfield in south Jersey. Towering oak trees frame the golf course, separating each hole and giving each one a secluded feel. There are several challenges in store on this layout including massive strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, but it is also forgiving enough to accommodate beginners. The golf course does not have just one hole that it considers its signature but in fact, multiple holes. There is the par-5 seventh which stretches to a monstrous 621 yards and the par-4 ninth features a tricky second shot over water to a double green. These two challenging holes take advantage of the landscape's natural contours. The 17th is yet another signature hole, it has been voted the "toughest par 3 in South Jersey."

The entire time we were playing golf they were working on the course which tied up the pace of play as we had to keep stopping on every single hole while they were working putting down markers for 50 100 150 it was ridiculous it was time-consuming and it just totally ruined our entire game of golf. This type of work should have been done when golfers were not trying to play. We were behind two foursomes and we were only a party of two. In addition in the afternoon they had a tournament so we were rushing to get off the course. None of this was told to us when we signed up to play golf and we thought this was very unfair. Also we had a very small bag with Gatorade a bottle of water and an ice pack and we were told that we were not allowed to use our cooler. They said they were banned from their course. Since my husband is a heart patient he needed the cold energy drink but instead had to drink it at room temperature since we were playing 18 holes and there is was no way to keep it cold.I can see if they didn't want to have beer or other alcoholic beverages brought onto the course but they could see we did not have any such beverage.

First off, the course is nice and the clubhouse has great food and amenities. With that being said, I’ve golfed at a lot of places, to. Include other countries, but I’ve never played a slower round of golf then I did today. On every hole, we had to wait for the group in front of us (who had to wait for the group in front of them, etc.), and on about 6 holes we literally pulled up behind the 4 guys in front of us at the next tee box who didn’t even start hitting off yet due to the people in front of them still within driving range. Needless to say, it was a little ridiculous. We teed off around 11:30am and didn’t get done until a little before 5:30pm. We enjoyed the course, but certainly did not enjoy the wait time.

For the inexpensive price, this was a nice course BUT it's in the middle of nowhere. The course was fairly busy, especially for a Wednesday afternoon and our tee time was delayed so they could pair us up with another twosome. The starter was not helpful or friendly but the pro shop and restaurant personnel made up for it.

More cons: There is one porta-potty on the course and there is no where else to go except at the turn. One whole has the blue tees (and occasionally white tees from what we were told) hitting directly over the main driveway. There was no sign that I saw pulling in but this would be helpful information!

Still early in the season, but conditions were pretty good, especially the greens. Sand traps could use a little TLC, too many stones and in need of raking. All in all, it was an enjoyable day. The staff and amenities were great. I'll be back.

If you can't give this place 5 stars... you're a liar!!

Right from the first hole you know the course is going to be challenging. I wish it was water and not sand however right in front of the first tee box (now that would be even more of a challenge).

That 600+ yard hole is definitely worth the challenge.

This place is definitely a hidden gem. You might miss the driveway into the golf course if it's your first time there. But, I did and that wasn't even a problem for me.

First time playing at WOCC. The greens were recently top dressed and they were very sandy and lighting fast. The course over all was good. It’s April and very early in the season. In a few weeks it should fill in nicely. The sand traps are like no other. The only complaint was the sand traps need tons of work. There is water in many of the sand traps. Over all I would go back again it’s a good value.

This course is always amazing for the price. I have been teaching a friend to golf and this course is very good for polishing your skills. The fairways are fairly well maintained as are the greens. sand traps can be spotty and the tee boxes as well but it’s not unexpected. Not too difficult of a course but still a great play. For the price it really cannot be beaten. Would recommend to all levels of players. My true rating is 4.5/5 for a smaller public course.

Unfortunately we had a foursome ahead of us that played slowly,. They had a foursome ahead of them that played slowly. No course marshall was seen to ask them to pick up their pace. We had two men behind us that wound up hitting up on us. After 9 holes the two men jumped ahead of us and saw for themselves how slow the groups were ahead of us. Made for a bit of stress on a beautiful day. Would be nice if someone came around to tell them to pick up and move along.

Greens rolled tight and true. Preparations for the season part of obvious attentive care taking (aeration) around the collars of the greens- signs of a well kept track bracing for summer play. I can’t wait to get back and try the very enjoyable layout. Staff was very relaxed and made our group feel comfortable and it was fun! Blue skies, sunny day, and sweet short green grass. All golf courses are in place to have fun with friends and testing skills. Thumbs up for White Oaks

Got there for a 2 PM tee time and there was a 75 minute wait because they said there was a frost delay earlier. We talked to one golfer who drover 50 miles to play there and was never informed about the delay. He had been waiting for two hours.

I don't understand why the course cannot inform GolfNow about such a delay who can then communicate to their customers who booked that day.

We had the 2nd tee time of the day. Wind gusting to 30, we played from the trees for most of the holes. Good news, they don’t have too many leaves in the tree line, bad news, if you got out but landed in a bunker you would’ve been retrieving a wet ball. The greens were in great shape considering the recent weather in south Jersey.

The bar/restaurant was great. Food was great too.

I thought the fairways and greens were really good for this time of year.The tees were a little barren the aprons were fine and the less said about the traps the better. They are proof of the horrible weather we had for the last 4 or 5 months. Even though I lost a few balls in the "sand" i did not allow this to ruin my day. I think the good far out weights the bad and I'll return soon.
