Course Reviews


Flat + straight + wide = BORING. Played the Vineyards this morning. And in typical South Jersey style, paid too much and got too little. With prices hovering just below 100-bucks, I kind of expected an exceptional course. What I got was flat, straight, and boring. No yardage markers. Confusing pathways with little directional signage. Rutted-dirt cart paths. And precious little to make me want to return. For that kind of money, I'll drive north next time.

I hear the commercials on the radio all the time about this beautiful golf course of Renault with spectacular scenery and a challenging layout so I finally had the opportunity to check it out for myself. Unfortunately I wasn't utterly impressed. Granted the scenery as far as its location is really nice, snug and hidden alongside a vineyard, but the actual course itself was very plain with the exception of a few holes. Every hole has enormous fairways with little obstacles so it wasn't really challenging. The length of the course and the few sandtraps were the only things that truly had to be managed. With all the publicity and advertising I hear about this course I expected an immaculate layout, but that too wasn't anything great. The fairways were nice, but the rough got little attention and was just high grass. Fortunately I kept it straight most of the day, but finding your ball just off the fairway proved difficult. Maybe this was the most challenging part of the course. The 7th and 8th holes are definately their signature holes and are unique and eye appealing. The 7th you actually walk into the vineyard, tee off on an elevated tee and hit over a few rows of grapes. The 8th a bunker splits the fairway down the middle. Two nice holes. The greens were being aerated so putting was difficult, but on normal conditions I'd suspect the greens would be nice and play to a rather fast speed. The price of $40 to walk weekday twilight is a bit much for a rather average course. I can only guess that the attention and amount of money put into advertising is a result of the owners being substantially wealthy due to the amount of revenue generated from the vineyard, and expensive restaurant/resort/hotel that neighbors the golf course. So they can afford the radio commercials, but the course itself, which had little players when I was there, doesn't live up to the hype. They do have a cool logo ball for the logo ball lover like myself, a huge plus. All in all though it's an overpriced tourist trap. Overall rating C+.

We plsyed it today. They charged $60 for greens that were terrible. They punched them 4 weeks ago which seemed like 4 days ago. The whole course was in sad shape. Shot 80

I live locally, and have watched this course mature over time. I'm not sure if they even used sod initially or just seeded the sandy soil, because for the first bunch of years this course was thin, bare, barren and any other adjective that implies the opposite of lush. I actually stayed away for awhile due to the desert-like conditions. But, for the last couple of years, the grass must have finally sunk its roots deep into the Pine Barrens and tapped the aquafer, because Renault has matured into a fabulous course. The fariways and greens are close and plush and are reminiscent of top-tier venues. Plus, the layout is challenging and imaginitive for the most part, with a pleasing mix of sloping, doglegging, eleveation change, bunkering, and green tiering. #7, for instance, is a short par 4 with a long nasty bunker splitting the fairway in two, and while in reality it is not a hard hole, it is visually intimidating and entertaining. My only complaint is that some holes have long distances from green to the next tee which makes walking tough. In my mind, Renault has become one of the best courses in S Jersey, and because it costs less than most of its competitors, it is definitely the best value in S Jersey.

Great scenery with the vineyards lining the outside of the course. Some really fun holes with some challenges and some chances to be aggressive. Well kept course and definitly worth playing if you are in AC.

Played afternoon on 6/24/08. Course was in excellent shape. Greens are pretty fast and tiered. Played long (6,500 from whites). Joseph's Restaurant was unbelievable!

Super fun course. The par 4’s are the strong suit as each of them plays with different looks and shot values. The par 5’s are all generally straight forward, although #6 is a good, fairly straight hole. Conditions were good and the greens fast and true (although lacking any real character in terms of contours).

Lots of courses claim to be good for the low and high handicap player, but I think this one delivers on that. There are a lot of angles in play and center line hazards that create challenge without forcing players to hit to narrow landing areas. Proper angles are rewarded with good approaches, and bad angles leave chances for recovery and even par, but require a better shot to score.

I’ve played all the AC area courses and this one is right up there near the top. Definitely worth a game.

this is the place to go if you like good golf good food and great selections of wines.

A well kept secret that gets very little play. Excellent condition, great value and only 20 minutes from the AC casinos. Bring the wife and let her roam the vineyards for 4 hours as you enjoy the open, mistake friendly course. Stay and eat at the restaurant equally as good.

beautiful course

beautiful and well maintained. paid $39 for fees and cart on beautiful day in november, I will return again. The course was wide open off the tees with somewhat difficult approach shots due to the well designed holes
