Green Knoll Golf Course in Bridgewater Township has a varied terrain that provides a unique character to the course. The course sprawls across gently rolling hills dappled with mature trees. Much of the course's challenges are a result of the tricky contours. Some of the elevation changes are dramatic but there are also some subtle ones, which can be just as tricky. Further accuracy is required to maneuver the tight fairways. There are definitely challenges in store throughout but overall the golf course's playability appeals to all skill levels, from novices to avid golfers. It measures a manageable 6,443 yards from the back tees. In addition to the 18-hole course, there is also a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course. Green Knoll is one of five golf courses operated by the Somerset County Park Commission.

The fairways were lush and the greens were in outstanding shape and the rough is getting thick. The wetness of early May is gone. Premium placed on hitting the fairways.

Always enjoy playing here. Looks easy, but hilly.

Even with a short mowing staff, seems to always

be in good shape for the most part.

No snack bar. Pleasant staff. Great prices for

seniors. Has a 9 hole rate. No driving range to

speak of ( Pitch and putt course used at times

for driving range).

There were some sprinkles in the air on a cloudy day but over-all the weather was okay. Being that the past month or so has been very wet, especially the weekends, one could understand the damp areas surrounding the hazards as being prone to a lost ball or two due to plugging. Some of the sand traps were flooded too. The traps that were not flooded were in very good shape with good playable sand.

Fairways were in good shape and the greens in great shape. Since it is not summer, the annoying gnats of summer were not a factor. The deer were out in abundance and did their thing without disrupting anyone's round of golf.

Overall a good experience for the year's first round which, with a 2:20 p.m. tee time, took 3.25 hours to play.

Course is always fun and Challenging.

The fairways and tee boxes were in great condition.

My only complaint was the Greens.

They were terrible!!! Then were not cut or rolled.

Every putt bounced. Not one true roll. It made the day very frustrating when you hit great lines and your putts have no chance.

Love to play this course even though there are a few quirky holes where fairways are close to each other and golfers are hitting balls to the same rough. Good challenge for golfers of all levels but the average to above average players will likely enjoy it more...
