The greens were in terrible shape for a $90 greens fee. The starter said that it was because of the weather, but another nearby course was in much better shape and the fee was similar. We will never golf at this course again. Even the grass that was cut down had a lot of crabgrass-- just total lack of care.... More

Nice golf course, that's not too difficult. Course is in serious need of improvement. Way too many spots are burned out. Everyone very friendly.

Course was in just OK shape for $105. Greens were very slow. very little water on the course and the temp was over 90. When I told them that they should have more water their response was that "people complained about that the day before also". not exactly the most customer friendly response I would have expected.

I played Sand Barrens on July 4th, the greens fee with cart was $105. The greeter in the pro shop was friendly and promptly assisted me. The started was great, gave us a good idea of what to expect from the course. Where the experience started going downhill was on the fourth hole. I make a mistake; I drove past... More

Sand Barrens has had a rough few summers with the extreme heat causing disease all over the course. However, I was there last weekend and they must have put a ton of money into the place because the course is in the best condition I've seen it in in three YEARS. It's totally worth the visit now, and I will... More

I had heard that the last few summers had been pretty rough on area golf courses, and I was hesitant to come back after hearing some rumors about area courses. But what a pleasant surprise when my wife and I played Sand Barrens recently. The golf staff was as professional as I have seen in my golf travels (I belong... More

I'll start with the positive...The layout is great. Unfortunately, the course condition is one of the worst I have played in the past two years. My local muni course is in better shape than this layout. A "heads up" on the condition of the course would have been nice when we made our tee times to alert us of the... More

Overall: Sand Barrens is one of the best public courses in New Jersey. Course has taken a proverbial beating from the hot summer and several holes were definitely showing some damage. Positives: Course has a great layout with 27 holes; pro shop and starter were friendly and helpful. Starter warned us that the course had taken a beating because of... More

They should be embarassed to charge $110 to play this course!! This course should be closed for a year at least and a new superintendent should be brought in to fix this course. Absolutley one of the biggest rip-offs I have ever experienced. I play 75 rounds of golf per year at 25 different golf courses up and down the... More
