There isn't much to cover in this review that hasn't already been mentioned, but I will say that although most reviews haven't been flattering, they have been more kind than really they have had to be. Kresson is a course for beginners, but does that mean it HAS TO BE poorly maintained too?? The maintainance is terrible. The crabgrass and regular grass on fairways still exists. The tee boxes are the worst I have ever played, just dirt and there is nothing to distinguish fairway from rough. Almost any other course you will play around this area has a better bang for your buck. $20 to walk weekend twilight sounds appealing, but not for this course. Even Beckett might have better maintainance. As many reviews have stated, people play here for only two reasons. First, it's a course where some learned how to play and for that still has some sort of appeal to play again. The other is the scenery and course layout is cool with the uniqueness of holes being by far its strongest attribute. Several holes are over water, or nice doglegs which makes them fun to play. This course could be a hidden gem if it was taken care of. But by the consistency of reviews over the years combined with the accuracy of them from what I witnessed today this course can not be viewed as anything more than a beginner course and or a course to play in early March to shake off the rust. It's ashame because, albeit, a short course it could be a fun little mainstay. The management really should be embarassed. They don't have logo balls either which stinks for a collector like myself. Oh and bring your own water or better yet go somewhere else until they fix what could be a nice executive course. Overall rating C.

OK--First of all..when it comes to Kresson it is really a locals only golf course. By this I mean that if you are coming in from out of town do NOT play it! I was taught how to golf on this course because it is short and easy to walk. Once you have any ability to hit a golf ball you don't play here anymore..well not unless you just go there to have fun and mess around. I usually play there once every two or so years and that's only because it was the first course i ever played. There are probably three par 3's in a row on the front 9..one is about 40 yds. You drive just about every par 4 and that includes your 5 iron to your driver. The cost..way overpriced!!!

grounds..let's see not only are the tee boxes nowhere close to being level but you're lucky if there is grass on it.

Now the good part :) The course does offer some holes that make you work your shots. a couple fun doglegs while they may be short you can have fun with them. the has some narrow spots so if you can't hit your ball straight you will be dropping and hitting 3 more time then you would like (assuming you're a true golfer). I'm a relatively low handicap (6-9) and I shot 6 under one day and that was messing around and not really trying. Some of the greens are pretty small and similar to putting in your house!

if you play there don't expect to be playing a "true" golf course..go there and expect to have fun and that's about it..go with low expectations and you'll love it. :)

This is my third year playing at the wonderful Kresson Golf Course, I am giving the golf facility a rating of four stars out of five. It is truly the best-kept secret in New Jersey. I’ve read other comments about the tee-box ground’ is not level or the greens are slow. Hey Guys; this is great golf course it is not the driving range. A golf course is 100% (percent) uneven, it is designed too challenge you into making adjustments to every facet of your game. Keep in mind that most courses wet their greens twice a day for maintenance and upkeep at some point in time the greens are air-rated. When the greens are recovering from air-ration, they are lumpy and slow. This is true for all Northern State golf courses. However, at Kresson, the irrigation, maintenance, upkeep, and landscape have got better over the years and presently, the greens are fast.

Let me tell you a story. My two friends Ken, Danny and me have started a three-man tournament; the tournament includes 10 rounds of 18 hole golf played at various golf courses within forty miles of Philadelphia; it just so happen that Kresson was selected as our first golf course this year (June 2008). At the end of the tournament, we give away a 17” trophy to the best golfer. Sometime we walk if the grounds are wet and on better day’s we ride. We think very highly of the staff, scenic views, design of the course and the wonderful challenges that we face each outing.

A good course to practice or boost your ego. Leave the driver at home. All you need is a 5 wood. The greens are very slow with almost no break. There are some holes that I find to be rather scenic. Number 8, 9 12 and 13 are nice holes visually. 4,5 and 6 are chip and putt holes but they you give you a great chance to post some low scores. The course attracts a lot of high handicappers who know nothing of the manners of the sport. Whether it's cutting in front of you or picking up your ball or playing your ball. It amazes me how many people have no idea what ball they are playing. Also the taking of Howard Cosell toupee like divots out of fairways seems to be rampant. The divots aren't replaced so you have pocked marked fairways with clumps of dried out sod scattered to and fro. Certain holes have bunkers in rather strange places. #14 which is a par three has a square shaped bunker about 30 yards in front of the tee box. Who is that supposed to penalize? The beginner? I would fill that in. There's a a large bunker guarding the front right side of the green. That's more than sufficient. Also get rid of the plastic mats on #1 and #6. Fill in with grass. A good walking course.

Kresson is a decent walking course and learning venue. I've been playing the course for almost 10 years and improved my iron and short game there because on certain days there is no one pushing you from behind so you can practice. It's also the place I introduced golf to my sons.

Money-wise,however, I played a 7,000+ yard course in South Carolina this summer. (I was testing the back tees and learned my lesson. From the "normal tees" it plays 6,400.) The fee at that course was $24 with cart at 10AM and the course was well maintained, much better than Kresson. Not that I am knocking Kresson, but they charge $16 more to ride and $1 dollar less to walk. Just like one of the other posters here I would like to see Kresson improve itself with better fairways and greens for what they are charging. I think after ten years of playing there improvements are due for those of us who are loyal to the course.

We played the men’s tees which at any other golf course would be the kids’ tees, measuring a total of 4800 yards. First off, way over priced for the conditions of the course, the score cards have not been updated in over 15 years, all the yardages are incorrect on the score card, the teeing areas and fairways are typical grass and the greens are like a thick carpet with huge aeration holes.

Course maintenance is weak, my lawn at home is nicer. As stated above… the teeing areas and fairways are typical grass and the greens are like a thick carpet and are very slow with almost no break. There are no diagrams of the holes (except for stick figure like diagrams on scorecard), no yardage markers anywhere, yardages are incorrect on the score card, leaves you wondering about yardages on most of the holes.

Good Course to take a Beginner

This is a great course to take your young kids out for a round - who are just learning the game.

There is no driving range/club house/ ... no amenities really at all.

Difficulty is weak ... no risk reward.

Maintenance is weak at best. Can you say crabgrass .... everywhere even all over the greens. Poor drainage .. therefore do not be surprised to be teeing off in the mud.

Scenery is nice ... a lot of old growth trees ...

It is difficult in the respect that the fairways are not real fairways and that you will never get a good lie on crabgrass or compacted dirt.

for roughly the same money I recommend River Winds or Ramblewood ...

but if you are just getting into the game and do not want to deal with Rangers complaining about your pace ... go to Kresson

Kresson - A Good Value?

Let's face it, if you are looking to play a top rated course, this is not it. If you go with the expectation of helping your son or daughter learn the game, this is a great place. It is also a great place to go if you do not have a tee time anywhere lese - you can walk right on the course. The fairways leave a lot to be desired, but it is a great place to practice your short game and shake some rust off if you do not play frequently.

This could be a great little executive course if a few dollars were spent on it - they just never do.

Go to this course with the attitude that your just out to have fun - and you will.

Value at Kresson

This course was in great shape in the beginning of 2006, but was quickly beat up on by the Jersey summer, including 2 heat waves, plenty of rain and just...neglect I guess. This course could be great if they took better care of it, but for what you have to pay to golf in NJ anymore, this place can be a bargain. Short, good for practice, forgiving, pretty...but it can be very slow due to it being predominantly a walker course.

Thought this place was a total dump. Crab grass everywhere with no distinguishable fairways, poor greens, and no diagrams of the holes (except for stick figure like diagrams on scorecard). As for the scenery I don't know as I played on March 2 and there was none, maybe in the summer there is some when trees are in bloom also all of the ponds and streams had no water in them but plenty of unappealing mud.

Come on people, a good beginner course? For 40 bucks you could play Washington Township Municipal 4 times or town and country (and you don't hit off of artificial mats on the first tee). Greens are terrible and poorly maintained. I realized the course was bad when i reached the green on a par four with a five iron.
Please, if your going to spend 40 dollars, look around for courses that are worth it.

Kresson is improving

I golfed there recently and was pleasantly surprised. An effort is being made to improve the overall conditions. Fairways and Greens are improving. The course has really been cleared out of debree. Not crowded, not all that challenging but for $28 it served its purpose.

You get what you pay for...

The greens are not well maintained, the holes are all alike, and you need to be 21 to even ride on a cart...even if you have your license!!!

Could be a fun little course, but in its current state it's just frustrating. The yardages are bogus, the greens are an inch too long, and the turf is crap.

Kresson can be a pretty scenic course. Some trees are completely overgrown. There are better values out there, especially in PA.

Good course to fine tune your game. No such thing as a good lie, but cant beat it as far as value
