Although our pace time was ok. We always had to wait to hit and someone was always waiting behind us. Space the tee times out a minute or 2 more! Overall great course

Knob Hill is a great layout in my opinion. However, it’s not the best experience - let me explain.

There is no golf range for a semi-private course so there’s no where to warm up. There is a net by the practice green. The practice green speed is pretty close to the actual course greens. However there is a huge hill on one side of the practice green that you’ll never see on the course. Don’t get me wrong, the actual greens have a lot of movement in them in some areas. But not a 5 foot steep drop.

There is a big difference between the blue and white tees in terms of distance. Don’t be fooled by the sub-6000 yard white tees yardage. There’s water on many holes or blind tee shots. This is where the course shines! There is no hole that reminds you of any other hole.

So now the greens... the greens roll true and decent speed. It would be more fun if the greens were faster for this short of a course.

The worst part of this course is the ridiculous amount of divots on the green. My playing partners and I would fix 3-5 divots each per hole. This is not an exaggeration either. There are unfixed divots everywhere. If you want to roll your putt true, you’ll have to fix some divots. It’s almost as if nobody is fixing divots despite the GPS thing in the cart reminds players to.

Overall, good track and worth playing if in the area. Not worth the price unless you’re playing later in the afternoon when it’s less expensive.

Knob Hill is one of the best courses to play in NJ. You are always met in the lot by a starter or cart manager who asks you your time and brings your bags and the cart up to the check in for you. The carts have a screen in them with your yardages, flyovers of each hole as you pull up and your pace of play. Today it rained out of nowhere and made for a wet round for us. Luckily we were able to get 18 in, in about three hours flat (two some)

Greens were pre or post treated for aeration (not quite sure) which definitely hurt play around the greens but that is to be expected around this time of the year.

Will certainly get back soon as it is a short trip from NY. Ralph the starter was helpful and friendly!

I played at noon Because the rate dropped from $72 to $46. Amd for $46 the place is awesome. Challenging, but fair.

I gotta say the highlight of the day was grabbing a Burger with Porkroll at the turn. I don't think a good burger....scratch that....a GREAT burger should go without a mention.

Highly Reccomended.

Weather was great and we had a 2:32 tee time and got out 15 minutes earlier.. Four hour round , great pace and no pressure behind the group behind us. . The course is only a Par 70 but very challenging for the first time . The carts come with a GPS which I found very helpful . The tee boxes and putting greens wee in good shape and the fairs were in better shape .

I am a 14 HCP and shot 3 over in the front but finished with a 13 on the day . Looking to play it again
