100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 5
“Metedeconk is a very demanding test, which feels like it could host a Women’s US Open one day with its vastness and facilities too. The course is is very secluded as well, as the aesthetics and surrounds are very inviting."
2 / 5
“Narrow fairways with towering pines. Every hole feels on its own and one can rarely see any other hole on the golf course beside the one they're on. Fairway, then penal rough then forest. Soft conditions, not fast and firm. Several blind shots and blind approaches. Massive driving range and strong golf culture. Runoff areas around the green support a variety of shots around them."
3 / 5
“Metedeconk is home to one of the best practice facilities I've seen anywhere. The club facilities, pro shop, staff and food are all excellent and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Only to be outdone by the two level mens locker room that was done impeccably. Holes 7, 10 and 18 stand out, and this course plays very tough from the back tees. We had great weather and the course conditions were excellent as the greens were firm and fast and the rough was longer making this a challenging course from start to finish."
4 / 5
“A delightful golfing day: the view of the driving range/practice field as you approach the clubhouse is astounding and sets all the right notes for a great day to come. The strength of the course comes in the handful of holes on each nine that are starkly unusual: terrific long holes with three challenging shots and some excellent very short par 4s highlight each nine. Playing through the forest on virtually every hole gives a warm and intimate character to the course."
5 / 5
“A special NJ track as almost every hole is an entity unto itself. The proximity of marsh and lowland pine forest throughout provide for a memorable ambience on this beautiful course."
