Hidden Gem of the Day: Hominy Hill Golf Course in Colts Neck, New Jersey

Published

on

These aren’t the traditional “top-100” golf courses in America, or the ultra-private golf clubs you can’t get onto. These are the hidden gems; they’re accessible to the public, they cost less than $50, but they’re unique, beautiful and fun to play in their own right. We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here!

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member Redstorm2011, who takes us to Hominy Hill Golf Course in Colts Neck, New Jersey. The Robert Trent Jones designed course has hosted two USGA National Amateur Public Links championships in the past, and in his description of the course Redstorm2011 explains why this gem of a track is a must visit.

“For a course that’s part of a county park system, it’s meticulously maintained with fast greens but also provides penalizing rough. It’s designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and is just a classic, beautiful parkland design. There’s no “gimmicky” holes and a great course to walk.

It’s an absolute steal for residents but still worth the price for non-residents. It may not be a hidden gem for golfers in New Jersey, but probably is for anyone outside the state considering its location in the suburbs and away from the most popular tourist areas in the state.”

According to Hominy Hill Golf Course’s website, residents can play the course during the week for $38, and on the weekend for $46. The rates for non-residents range from $64 to $75.

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member golfin8, who takes us to Dodge Riverside Golf Club in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Located just a few minutes away from downtown Omaha, Dodge Riverside sits along the Missouri River, and according to golfin8, it’s a gem of a golf course that is well worth a visit.

“While it’s only 6,400 yards, it’s still one of the best-kept tracks in the area. Makes you work the ball left and right, has risk/reward decisions on almost every hole and the greens are always in great shape and fairly challenging.

It’s kept basically the same layout since opening in 1927, except for a reroute (only changing the start and end holes, the course still flows the same it always has) when the new clubhouse was built and a remaking of the 9th hole after the area had a flood a short while back.

It’s just a classic tree-lined fairway course that is in a town outside a larger metropolitan area that gets drastically overlooked when people think of golf in Omaha.”

According to Dodge Riverside Golf Club’s website, 18 holes during the week will set you back as little as $23, while the rate raises to $31 should you wish to play on the weekend.

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member pdaero, who takes us to Republic Golf Club in San Antonio, Texas. The course is situated just ten minutes from downtown San Antonio, and pdaero gives us some excellent insight into what you can expect should you make the trip here.

“My favorite golf course to play, it is always in really good shape. These pictures are from wintertime, which the greenness is still impressive. The course has a ton of fun holes and unique designs, and only houses visible on 4 tee and between 14 green and 15 tee.

The course rating is strong, with a 74.2 rating on a par 71 (7007 yards from the tips), and even from the second tee you get 1.3 strokes.”

We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here!

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member Stuart G, who takes us to the Country Club of New Hampshire in Sutton, New Hampshire. Situated at the foot of Mount Kearsarge, the Country Club of New Hampshire ranges in length from 6000 to 7000 yards, and in his description of the course, Stuart G explains how this track hits all the right notes.

“Great layout! – Makes you think your way through the round.  Challenging but not overly penal.   Walkable – although that’s relative (keep in mind this is the hill country).  Grass only driving range.  Friendly People.    Easy access (only a few minutes off of I89). Flying Goose Brew Pub just down the road – best place for after round refreshments.”

According to the Country Club of New Hampshire’s website, 18 holes midweek around the course will set you back $36, while a weekend round will cost you $45. Both rates include a cart.
