Hamilton Trails Golf Course
Funa and a Great Value
Hamilton Trails is the only regulation length 9-hole course at the Jersey Shore. It's has a nice variety of holes, it's conveniently located and is an exceptional value for the very affordable greens fees. Relative to the price, the course is well maintained and pace of play is usually very good. A good track for beginners, seniors and anyone who is more interested in a fun and enjoyable round of golf than a championship caliber golf course. With 4 and 1/2 hour rounds the norm these days, you can play 9 at Hamilton Trails in under two hours, or 18 in less than 4.

This place has really gone downhill -- don't waste your time
This used to be a fun course for a quick 9 -- or even 18 -- but most everything about it has gotten much worse over the years. The staff -- once a friendly group -- is not only snarly and rude, but twice I was accused of attempting to play 18 holes and paying for 9, although it wasn't true either time. In fact, the guy who confronted me was the guy who checked me in at their clubhouse.
Besides all that, the course is in bad shape and filled with a really bad mix of seniors, newbies and bad golfers, which makes for very long rounds.
Don't waste your money here. I'll never be back myself.
