Avalon Country Club
Just an OK course.
I only play here when I get a great deal from GolfNow; otherwise I cannot see myself paying full price to play here. The course is not very scenic and diffinitely needs some attention. I just played on 03/30/2013 and I told my friend that I may not play there again because of the condition and the lack of challenge.

good 18 holes for any golfer
clean. spaced out enough that not too many slices go on other fairways.

Simple and easy course
I've played Avalon a handful of times in the past year and I must say it is a decent course. The staff isnt too friendly and the club house members are on the rude side, but if you just ignore them you'll have a great time.
The greens are well kept and the fairways are par at best. Make sure to play a few days after a rainstorm. There are very few fairway bunkers and every whole almost dead straight besides a few dog legs.
The course is fun and I will continue playing here.

The price was right for a late winter round. Pace was really slow, more related to the three I was paired with. Will play again.

The course is in great shape, the greens are in very good condition, the fairways and ruff are well maintained!

Very good value, just a fun place to play.
The round was slow, but that was to be expected given 50+ degrees in January. The course gets a good bit of play, since it is nestled between some high priced courses. Here is the thing that gets me, and I have played this course in the winter before, the greens are wonderful. How do they maintain their speed, pace and overall feel through the cold winter months? I can only imagine them in the spring and summer. I like the place alot, heck, I travel over 50 miles to play it, and the bar and restaurant are just the icing on the cake!

course in very good shape
course in very good shape for winter conditions. Greens a little slow but, roll very true. Course free of leaves on fairways. Overall a very enjoyable experience!

tee, fairways need dirt in divot, green need to be clear of debrie and goose droppings and ballmarks need to be repaired. other then that the course was in good shape.

The course was fun and the starter was very cooperative.
We played as a threesome. The course was in good shape and was very playable. The starter was very cooperative and we finished our round in 3 and a half hours.

SLOW, SLOW PLAY!
I had not played Avalon is several years, and now I remember why. 3 HOURS TO PLAY 9 HOLES! 11 OF US WAITING ON THE 10TH TEE.
I should have known when I pulled up and read the sign that bragged about having a record number of rounds. Avalon's approach is to maximize their revenue and minimize the golfer's enjoyment. There were no marshals on the course.
I will never play their again, and advise others to do the same.

Nice course, challenging greens
My wife and I stayed in Cape May and played Avalon on a good deal through GolfNow. Hooked up with a couple of friendly guys who also booked through GolfNow. Course is flat with drivable fairways and not a lot of trouble. Good advantage on longer holes for women and seniors. Being at sea level and with ocean breezes it can play longer than it seems. Greens were large and very undulating making for a number of three putts for me and, I wager, others, depending on pin placement. Some water and bunkers but not problematic for low or mid handicaps. Not much development around course so that most holes seem serene and natural. Overall a very good golf experience on a course that seems easy but the score on the card says it's moderately difficult.

We are beginners and this course was a great challenge. It was a beautiful setting and the club house was gorgeous.
