Due Process Stable Golf Course is a hidden gem of the golf world. The problem is, it's so well hidden – by the owner's choice – that you will likely never even catch a glimpse of the course.

Tucked away in appropriately named Colts Neck, New Jersey is a former thoroughbred horse farm turned into a mind-blowing golf course. Getting a membership is almost impossible with the exception of the less than 100 members that get to enjoy the perfectly manicured bent grass course and all of its well-considered surprises.

When golf architect Gene Bates was first approached by the owners of the land, he was given free reign on the design. There was one stipulation – each hole should be private onto itself and you shouldn't be able to even see golfers on adjacent holes. Bates got to work, creating a mastery of rolling mounds and vegetation that created an almost mystical design on the course. Not only is Due Process completely blocked off from the outside world, Bates achieved the goal of creating a new adventure on each hole.

One of the most distinct features off the course is the clubhouse which is actually the original breeding barn at the horse farm on that land. The now pristine structure still gives a nod to its roots. The pro shop was transformed from two horse stalls; the former breeding area is now the restaurant and bar.

Hints of the land's heritage are also found on the golf course. Two striking horse statues are found just past the driving range. One is of a young boy happily riding along, holding onto the mane of his horse. Beside the pair is a second statue of a jockey straddling his racehorse riding in a similar pose as the boy, showing the love and thrill of racing throughout a lifetime. Even the different tees have a racing theme, each named after a leg of the legendary Triple Crown.

On the course, you'll find challenges at ever turn, but nothing so severe to discourage the casual golfer from playing. Play from the front and middle tees and scoring well is definitely feasible. The back tees provide a great challenge for even low handicap golfers as the landing areas become narrower and more challenging.

Get to the green in good shape and par or better is certainly possible. The greens are pristine – like the rest of the course – and moderately contoured, but don't feature any crazy or bizarre slopes.

At times the rough will be intentionally grown high, usually as an extra challenge for tournaments hosted by the course. When the rough is high, keep your drives far away as your next shot could prove to be quite brutal.

Each hole has its own identity and you will never feel that you are playing the same hole twice, another unique feature of the course. One distinctive feature of the course is found on the tee of the first and ninth holes, where the back tees are incorporated right into the practice green where golfers perfect their putts.

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to play Due Process, you will find that the customer service is top notch. From the golf representatives to the restaurant staff, each person will ensure that you enjoy your day at the course.

The low membership means no crowds and you will likely never have to wait on the course. As Bates stated, the only waiting at Due Process is the wait to get an invitation to play.
