Nothing beats enjoying your day with a few buddies and a good round of golf.Â Monmouth County offers six golf courses to choose from and you canâ€™t go wrong with any of them.Â Each year more than 200,000 rounds are played on their courses and their facilities can accommodate golfers of all skill levels.Â They include five championship 18-hole courses, two 18-hole executive courses, a 9-hole par 3 course, and three warm-up ranges.Â Monmouth County also offers a golf card rewards program: starting November 1st, rewards rounds can be redeemed at any golf course, seven days a week, starting at 11 AM.Â The points will expire at the end of the calendar year if not redeemed.
Monmouth County has six courses to choose from:
Bel-Aire Golf Course is a 27-hole facility that is open year-round and is also a great course to learn the game of golf in a fun and relaxed setting.
Charleston Springs Golf Course is a 36-hole course with extensive bunkering, multiple water hazards and pristine maintained greens.
Hominy Hill Golf Course is considered the crown jewel of the Monmouth County Park System.Â It is often rated as New Jerseyâ€™s number one public golf course, and has been rated as one of New Jerseyâ€™s â€œ10 Best Golf Courses for the Moneyâ€.
Howell Park Golf Course has a rustic setting, manicured fairways, and fast-sloping greens that provide a golfing experience often associated with private clubs.Â This par 72 course is repeatedly ranked among the top 50 public courses in the country.
Pine Brook Golf Course is an excellent 18-hole, par 61 executive-length course.Â In 2012, the course was the first in the parkâ€™s system to be designated as a junior-friendly facility with an additional set of forward tee markers and an adjusted score card.
Shark River Golf Course is the last of the bunch.Â It features tight, narrow fairways; deep-faced bunkers; and small, well-protected greens.Â This course offers a stern but fair test to all golfers.
