Quail Brook Golf Course in Somerset is one of central New Jersey's top public courses. The challenging design is a favorite amongst local golfers. The layout has a diverse mix of holes, some of which are spacious and wide-open and others that are rolling and tight. Although the golf course may seem short at 6,630 yards from the back tees, don't be fooled by the yardage. The course can feel much longer thanks to the hilly terrain. The front nine has subtler undulations while the back nine is dramatically hilly, which makes it a tough course to walk. Quail Brook Golf Course's undulating fairways lead to challenging sloped greens that are framed with strategically placed bunkers. There aren't too many opportunities for driving, but your short game will definitely get a workout.

Course conditions were excellent for tournament the next weekend.

Greens were true and rolled fast, even though it rained heavily the night before.

Tee boxes and fairways also in great shape,.

I am a Middlesex County resident and no longer play on their golf courses. I have joined Somerset County as an Out of County Resident and play 90% of the time on their five (5) golf courses. They are wonderful courses, extremely friendly staff and almost always in great condition (you can’t find better greens on a public course).

Very nice layout of the course with elevation changes.

Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape .

Greens were undulating, rolled true ( greens will be even better in a week as there was recent aeration.

It was a perfect weather day and the course was in good shape overall. However, the greens were shaggy and slow which was disappointing. It's almost as if they didn't cut them fora few days. I've played this course a bunch of times before and this was the slowest I've ever seen the greens. Usually they are pretty quick, which is what I prefer.

This is still a very nice public golf course that's good for every kind of player. Challenging enough yet score-able for better players and very fair for higher handicappers.

We had a 2:50 tee time. Got there early and hit a buckets of balls on their driving range. We teed off around 2;45. The course is in great shape the tee boxes to the green is well maintained. The speed of play was good a 4:15 round on a beautiful Saturday. We will play this Course again. The price was excellent through Golf Now’s Hot Deals. We would recommend this course to alll of our friends.

...excellent throughout. If I'm being picky, there was a very thin layer of sand over hard pan in the bunkers. Explosion shot won't work. You have to pick it clean. Maybe 60 degree wedge instead of sand wedge.
