Golf Vacations & Lessons
Play at one of the many local golf courses during your Stay.
The golf courses I recommend:
Private Country Club- The Avon Manor has purchased a membership to one of the finest golf courses in NJ or anywhere. This Johnny Miller/Jack Nicklaus design has been home to many USGA events. A little more money than public courses but it is a one of a kind experience. The World Class practice facility is priceless...extensive short game area that most golfers will never experience in a lifetime. Only available to practice if you play golf. Rates from $155-$175 depending on how many people and if you play with me or not. No morning or Friday times available sorry.
Knob Hill- Manalapan, NJ 07726, 732-792-7722, 30 min away but Semi private nice layout and worth the trip and easy to get a tee time.
Colts Neck Golf Club. 732-303-9330. 20 min away Semi private nice layout and worth the trip and easy to get a tee time.
Eagle Ridge - Three nines. 30 min away in Lakewood...many off season specials
Pebble Creek Golf Club- Rt. 537 Colts Neck, NJ 07722, 732-303-9090. Off rt. 34 about 20min.
Cruz farm: A little short and not maintained like a Country Club but…You can always walk on, they usually don’t force you into a foursome, $26/$30 bucks. 938-3378.
Shark River Golf Course- course on 33., Neptune (close, nice, do a drive by first, tough to get on in summer): 922-4141.
Twin Brook Golf Center-Range- Miniature Golf and a good size Par Three Course Take 33 to Jumping Brook Rd. and you can not miss it a mile down after you cross Rt. 66 in Neptune: 922-1600.
Your innkeeper is also an accomplished golf instructor.
