New Jersey abounds in great public and semi-private golf courses.

The best way to save on public golf is to register with your county. For an annual fee as low as $40 (depending on the county), residents get advance-booking privileges and reduced fees.

Monmouth County, for example, charges residents only $50 a year for a season pass (less for seniors and juniors). Passholders can play the highly regarded Hominy Hill for just $40 on weekdays (carts extra). Without the pass, it’s still a relative bargain at $65 on weekdays.

Wherever you play, weekdays and twilight times (typically late afternoon) always cost less. Twilight times are great in late spring and summer, when you can play into the early evening hours. Consider the challenging Heron Glen in Ringoes, where nonresidents of Hunterdon County pay $54 on weekdays and $33 weekdays after 3:30 pm (carts extra; less for seniors).

Be flexible! Some excellent courses (including Bowling Green in Oak Ridge and Architects in Phillipsburg) offer dynamic (or adaptive) pricing online, with great deals available based on open tee times.
