Middletown Country Club

Middletown is a compact 80 acres of challenging golf, with rolling hills and large specimen trees that have watched many golfers travel its fairways over time. It has retained its old time feel with tees and greens in close proximity, allowing golfers to walk the course if they choose.

Notes and Quotes: LPGA, Centerton

Written by Bob Oliver

The ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer kicks off this week on the Stockton Seaview Golf Resort's Bay Course. The event attracts a stellar field  

While at the shore many visitors work in a round of golf, and for those making their way to there are several venues to consider. One that doesn't get a lot of publicity is Centerton Golf Club, a value priced 6,100-yard test just off Route 55 near Vineland. 

Club officials call the 1962 Ed Carman design a place where one gets the "best bang for your golfing bucks" as modest greens fees are regularly available. It's a walkable, tree-lined pinelands course that offers four tee boxes to fit one's game.

Favorited by locals and visitors alike, it features a wide variety of tests including a dastardly 427-yard finishing hole. The 555-yard 11th hole is equally difficult, but those long holes are balanced by several holes of  the 360-yard variety.

Check it out.
