Travel Tips for Eatontown
Winter in Eatontown can be very mild (one year we had 60Fs on Christmas) or very harsh with wind chills in the below zero range. Driving in winter is not too bad as long as you remember to slow down and also to turn into the direction of the skid (because you will have a skid or two... bet on it). They tend to use sand instead of salt on the roads which is good for saving the metal on the car but not always good for reducing the ice problem.

Spring brings a month of showers and grays skies. But bear with it because the warm sea breezes are just around the corner.

Summer inland can be very hot and humid (I remember some parade ground drills in full pack in 90F weather that was gruelling). But the ocean front is only a few miles away and a drive over there gets you at least a 10 degree reduction in temperature. The beaches at Long Branch and Asbury were always crowded back in the day.

The Fall of the year in Eatontown is completely unspectacular. The temperatures reduce to comfortable levels then soon change to chilly nights. A few showers make the fallen leaves into masses of clutter in the gutters. There is a cold breeze off the boardwalk in Neptune. Not my favorite time of the year here.

Sun Eagle Golf Course
Being an Army Veteran (USA) has some benefits. One of them is access to fine government-operated golf courses like Sun Eagle. If you are a veteran and are in the Eatontown vicinity then read on otherwise you might as well go to another Thing To Do.
Fees for the use of this course depend on your veteran status. There is an annual fee of $30 whether you play once or one hundred times. Then the 18-hole course is $30 plus $10 for cart each time you hit the course. You can even get yearly passes for substantial savings if you are going to play this course very often.
The establishment has been around for decades (about 70 years)and is always in good shape. The course is very difficult from the long tees and only frustrating from the short tees. The fairways range from wide to narrow and tree lined with some doglegs where the green cannot be seen from the tee. Several tees are elevated. Shrubs have been placed next to the rough to catch and hold errant shots and easily cost you a stroke. The greens are often winter-worn in early summer but are in fine repair by late June. The whole course plays fast in the dry summer weather.
Water and roadways are hazards you must avoid or get stroke penalties.
see the website for details on tee times and arranging fees.
Eatontown = Shopping town
"Great if you like to shop...."
We've visited Eatontown a few times during the years 1997 and 1998. We went there to shop, eat and go to the cinema at Monmouth mall.
Eatontown it self is just under 6 square miles large and overs residence to about 14,000 people.
Eatontown has also wildlife sanctuary, 2 large parks and some smaller parks.
The name Eaton town came from Thomas Eaton who in 1670 came from Shrewsbury to Survey the Mill Brook Shores, which are now called Wampum Brook.
He created water power for a mill to grind the farmers grain.
The name Eatontown became official in 1873 by the New Jersey State Legistlature.
