aug.30, 2012 I have been playing this course for at least 25 years, as it is our local course. we probably play it 5 times a year on average. over the past 5 or 6 years , the conditions were pretty good, looking like they put money back into the course. played it over labor day weekend and it is the worst i have ever seen. drive the ball into the center fairway and you had a good chance of a dirt lie. at least 30% of all the fairways were this bad. happy we only paid $19 for twilight after work. had we paid the $35 to $50 earlier in the day, we would have been pretty upset. worse yet, i couldn't find anyone in proshop to voice my concern to. we won't be back . very unfortunate. trying to keep costs down to attract customers is fine, but at least keep the track in good playable shape.

Great course - poor service Very happy to take our money for 2:10 PM tee time on 9/30/09 but at 6:15 on the 17th green we were told to stop play and return the carts rather rudely I might add. We were not the only people on the course there were several foursomes behind us, but all cart play was stopped. We were only 4 hrs and 5 minutes into our round with one hole to play…. I have been playing for forty years and never been treated so rudely. I had a great round going and will never know if I could have finished it out. Obviously I am very upset to bother and sit down and share my feelings. If your people are in such a hurry to close up shop maybe you should share this information with the public before you take our tee time. Because your cart guy wanted to leave four or five foursomes could not finish there round. that is no way to treat your customers.

Enjoyed my Saturday Morning
Just got out to Ocean Acres this past Saturday Morning (6/24/08), and really enjoyed the course. Really well maintained, and wide open fairways. It's the closest Golf Course to LBI (20-25 mins). Challenging Greens made for an interesting day, and the staff was very accomodating. I would play this course again in a heartbeat.

Has a few interesting moments mixed in among mind numbing stretches of tight, tree lined, fairways that make the holes feel repetitive. Maintenance was very poor, with shaggy, bumpy greens, and fairways that were so long you couldn't tell where they ended and the rough began. Not a course worth traveling to play.
