Sometimes you have to branch away from the familiar and try something new. That is what happened on my latest trip to Jersey. My dad and I always play Heron Glen. It is one of our favorite courses. This trip, my dad said he found a new course that just opened to the public, Hopewell Valley Golf & Country Club. My dad got us a tee time which was easy since this gem has not been discovered yet. We set off to play this course and I had a set of rental clubs.
Hopewell Valley Golf Overview
Course management decided recently to open its doors to the public. I imagine as a way to survive in the modern golf economy. The course was in very good shape and the staff could not have been nicer. I did find the location of the driving range up on the hill a funny locale but you work with what you got. I played with a nice rental set of clubs that were ready to go when we showed up.
If I Ran Hopewell Valley Golf
Not much I can say about fixing Hopewell Valley. The course is well laid out and in good shape.
My Favorite Hole at Hopewell Valley Golf
I really enjoyed the 16th hole and I say that because I played it really well. My tee shot allowed me to smash my rental 3 wood to the green and two putt for birdie. This was the tipping point for me to get a 3 wood after not playing with one for almost a decade.
Is Hopewell Valley Worth the Money?
Yes. Partly due to the fact we breezed through the course hardly seeing a sole. The other side is that the course is fun to play and in good shape. For those in or visiting central Jersey, add this course to your to play list.
