Detailed description of Roycebrook Golf Club, East

Roycebrook Golf Club is a 36 hole golf Facility located in Summerville, New Jersey. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses. They are, The Semi-Private East Course and the Private (members only) West Course.

The Roycebrook Golf Club golf courses opened for play in 1998. The courses were designed by Steve Smyers

The East Course is a semi private, Northern traditional style layout, which offers both the low handicapper and average golfer a plethora of challenges, depending on which tees are utilized. The East Course is considered less challenging than the West Course due a lesser number of deep, steep sand bunkers. The course has mature tree lines and tall native grasses. Sand bunkers are relatively conservative in size, but do play a major roll throughout the course. Generous-sized fairways are inviting for aggressive drivers. The East Course, open to both the public and members of the Club, is rated “Four Stars” by Golf Digest's Places to Play, and is rated as one of GolfWeek's "Top 10 Golf Courses" among public courses in the state of New Jersey. Featuring a 6,946-yard, par 72, parkland-style layout.

The West Course is widely considered Royce Brook's premium course and is a PRIVATE MEMBERS ONLY FACILITY. Featuring a links-style look, this course is cut through a vast prairie and wooded terrain. Native fescue grasses are abundant, and large bunkers with high flash points are prevalent. Many greens feature large, closely mown collection areas, much like Augusta National. Length and wind are considerable factors in shot selection on this course, however, every hole offers an alternative route to the green that does not require the golfer to carry a hazard or environmentally sensitive area. Royce Brook Golf Club also offers a for caddy program. The West Course is restricted to member play, and features a 7,158-yard, par 72, rugged links-style layout with open terrain, fescue grass, and dramatic bunkering style. The course is ranked among Golf Digest's Top 20 Golf Courses - private and public - in the state of New Jersey, and has received the coveted "Four Stars" as well.

This course has many bunkers including deep ones protecting greens and also relatively deep fairway traps. Unfortunately, the bunkers are virtually unplayable - minimal sand, never raked, etc. This is a minus for otherwise a nice course.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
