Description: Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones as a private golf facility, Hominy Hill was acquired by Monmouth County in 1977, but hasn't changed the class level.  Everything one can expect from a private golfing experience -- including wondeful facilities, a beautifully-manicured golf course, and a layout that is second to none for public golf in the Garden State -- this place is a real treat.

The course itself is fairly open, with some mid-length par-4s that make the mature rough a very undesirable place to be.  The trees aren't sparse, but are far enough off the fairway that they don't always come into play (but add to the wonderful, parkland scenery).  Accuracy is a must if you plan to score well.

The greens are fairly large, but are alsmot all elevated, with undulating putting surfaces.  More than 120 bunkers defned both errant tee shots as well as wayward approaches, making for a challenging and enjoyable round of public golf that certainly feels private. 

Comments: A classic design that has stood the test of time ... The best public course I've ever played ... A straightforard, honest test of golf ... Very difficult and challenging par-3s ... A terrifici layout that tests all your skills ... Not too conducive to beginners.
