Detailed description of Colonia Country Club

Colonia Country Club is an private 18 hole golf course located in Colonia, New Jersey.

Golf Course at Colonia Country Club first opened for plaay in 1899. Originally laid out as a nine-hole course by Scotsman Thomas Bendelow, Colonia demands you have your wits about you. The second nine was added by Robert White in 1923, and the holes were interspersed. Renovations were made by Hal Purdy in 1969, and Frank Duane, an associate of Robert Trent Jones Sr., in 1970.

Since The Golf Course at Colonia Country Club is all wrapped in approximately 100 immaculately maintained acres, landing areas are narrow, but it is the greens that are the equalizers at Colonia. They average only 4,500 square feet with mostly subtle undulations. The greens weren’t built to roll at 11 on the stimpmeter, but that’s the way they can play after they are double-cut each morning. There are places you’d rather be 25 feet below the hole than four feet above the pin.

#4 is the toughest ranked hole, and a textbook example of risk/reward. A par-5 of 528 yards, it plays to the largest green on the course, which is guarded by a pond in front.

# 13's green is sandwiched between two huge willows and fronted by a wrap-around pond with a stone wall, might be the prettiest.

Colonia is comprised of holes which force golfers to work the ball both ways, and a tremendous mix of long and short par-4s.

The Golf Course at Colonia Country Club plays to 6,380 yards from the Blue tees for a course rating of 71.1 and a slope rating of 126. Par fot the course is 72.

Colonia golf course plays to 6,402 yards from the back tees. Par for the course is 72. The course rating is 70.4 and the slope rating is 120.
