Suneagles Golf Course

Suneagles is off the Garden State in Eatontown in a mostly natural setting on the north side of Wampum Brook.

The golf course is a straightforward, parkland design over level terrain with streams and ponds impacting play as well as a variety of sizes and shapes of sand bunkers along the fairways and guarding the generally small greens. From the tips it plays to 6,385 yards, par 72, 71.4/128, course/slope ratings with three shorter tees.

Suneagles has an interesting history as it was once the estate of the Phillips family of the Phillips Van Heusen lineage who hired A.W. Tillinghast to design a private golf course. Tilly was known for such NY area designs as Winged Foot, Baltusrol, and his reputed design consultation on Bethpage Black. The Army purchased the property in 1942 for $42,000, and became a "private course" for Army officers until it was decommissioned, and opened to the public. The NJ Open Championship was played here in 1935 won by Byron Nelson, Gene Sarazen holds the course record of 65, and Orville Moody played here in several tournaments while in the Army before he won the US Open.
