About Ballyowen Golf Club

The 18-hole "Ballyowen" course at the Ballyowen Golf Club facility in Hamburg, New Jersey features 7,094 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 73.6 and it has a slope rating of 131 on Bent grass.

Designed by Roger G. Rulewich, ASGCA, the Ballyowen golf course opened in 1998. Crystal Springs Golf Resort manages this facility.

The course calls itself a "modified links-style," They have sheep and hire bagpipers to sell the idea that it's a links course. The sheeep may help a little with the rough, but in truth, the course is well manicured with great greens.

About the worst warm-up driving range facility I've ever seen. For a course that likes to call itself best in NJ, it's nowhere near a first class facility.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy

Only negative is that it is a "cart path only" course exclusively. Makes for a long round, and the aggravations that come with walking back and forth to cart. However, it's another reason the course is in excellent condition.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

One of the best in the state. Just about every hole makes you think; the variety of challenges is unmatched. And for all its fearsome reputation, you can definitely score if you keep your drive in the fairway.

Would travel: 60 - 120 miles
