Great course to walk. Great greens when mowed low. Good challenging layout. Not the longest from back tees, but still very challenging, especially some of the par 5’s.

Beautiful day. Course held the rain really well from the week of heavy rain. Wind made some of the long par 5s a bit longer which was a new challenge. Enjoyed the day.

Gorgeous day for golf. As usual, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Got us off early when there was a no-show.

I noticed what great shape the course was in, but saw very few workers. How do they do it? Course was perfect.

Now, my golf, however, stunk, but I had a wonderful time. Go figure.

I have played this course for forty years. Plays much longer than people say. If u play from championship tees is very long . Greens are not easy either. Highly recommend as if u hit ball squarely u can score. From living in area, this course not rediculously difficult yet can be very hard when windy. With all the rain in New Jersey , all the courses are thin in fairway unless u play a 100,000 a year country club. I have always enjoyed this course!!!!

Everyone on the course had to walk due to wet conditions. Made for a real old school day. Course was a bit soggy which made the walk a little spongy, but it was fine.

Early in the year, the rough was spotty; fairways and especially greens in good shape. The layout flowed nicely and was pleasing to the eye. Take care reading the greens. Overall a very enjoyable round.

Greens are in great shape for this time of year. Lot of different little projects going on around the course and fairways and rough are still pretty spotty. Hopefully will grow in nicely in a few weeks. Every bunker seemed to have plenty of good sand too.

First time I’ve ever played at Rutgers. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Course not long but interesting . Keep it in the fairway and you can score. Course in very good shape the only thing on the down side was that some people do not fix their ball marks on the green, I don’t know why it’s a common courtesy. All in all a very nice day I will be back.

Very well kept and quality for what you pay. The day we played it was walking-only —- no carts. The staff was VERY strict about the pace of play. While I appreciate them keeping the pace of play going, it’s ridiculous to think a group of four can complete 9 holes in under 2 hours without carts.

played this course often but was disappointed that only the back nine was available for play, for my group. I was told they were working on the front nine but i did see other golfers playing the front nine. I did see workers on the back while we were playing. Overall i enjoyed the round with the slight detour. the course looks to be making improvements and i will be back next season, i find the course challenging but fun.
