Hello, rogerv. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give Valley Brook Golf Course another try in the near future.
Hi Roger. Thank you so much for the great review. We are so glad to see that you had an incredible time, and we hope to see you again soon! Thanks for choosing Valley Brook Golf Course.
It is difficult to write a fair review for this course. The weather was ideal and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The back nine was closed so I played the front nine twice. The first hole has water about the distance Rea of my usual drive. Other than that hazard, I did not really find any challenges on the front.
To be fair, I hope to play the course again and experience the back nine.
Played on a rainy day thus the course wasnt playing its best. will try to play it again on a nice day to get an actually feel of the course.
Beware of Temporary Greens
I booked through GolfNow, and there was no mention of temporary greens before booking. There was a sign on the pro shop when we arrived to the course. The front nine moved along at a nice pace, but the greens were in rough shape that weren’t temporary. There were giant holes scattered throughout and made putting difficult to take seriously. The back nine and four temporary greens in a row, and it was not worth it. All three of us looked at each other in disbelief. It took all of the momentum out of the day unfortunately. The starter was extremely nice. He was the best part of the day. Luckily, the round did play quickly, but it was not worth the price. Surprisingly, the bunkers were immaculate.

What a shame
This course has gone so far downhill in the last 5-7 years. Used to be beautiful and well manicured. Now it is a junky, torn up expensive county course. 4 holes were under repair so we had to tee off or putt on fairways. No discounted rate given for this which is unacceptable. Bad experience and I won't be back.
Major decline in quality
This course has really declined in the last 5 years. The greens were awful, fairways and tee boxes were bad and there were 4 temporary greens. All for nearly $70 for non- resident with cart. This is a $40 course at best as-is. I was extremely disappointed and I won’t be back.
Greens are in poor shape and extremely slow. Fairways are fair. Stay away from Bergen County owned courses. They are not well maintained.
Course in good shape. Bit slow as would be expected on a holiday weekend. Some challenging holes, especially on back nine. For the most part plenty of fairway room, and nice greens. Bunkers in ok shape. Nice enjoyable round.
Hi, we appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for the 4 stars! We aim for a 5-star experience, so we always welcome feedback for improvement. Thank you for playing Valley Brook Golf Course.
The course definitely needs some rain but was still nice to play. Would have been nice to know that the bar didn’t have a liquor license prior to getting there.
Wow, we are so happy you enjoyed your round, u530006027! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Very good variety and layout
A partly sunny 65 degree day! A little wind. Because of the time of year, you can expect some mushy ground, some hard ground, and some brown grass. This was my first time here, and first time playing this early in the year in NJ. (just got back from 4 months in FL). I rally enjoyed the layout and variety. Most of the greens were loaded with sand, making putting very bumpy. I will give this course another go in late May / early June and see if it's better.
Hello, we love hearing from you and are glad you had a good experience even with the early spring conditions. Your first visit to our course is definitely exciting. We understand there are many options and are so glad you gave us a try. We look forward to having you back again soon and developing a lasting relationship with you. Until then, take care!
Wow - Thank you for the five star review!
Water Damaged Turf a Sand Trap on a Green & Slow Play
This poor track is hurt. There are greens that are beat us from the pin never being moved it appears then on the back wow there is a sand trap on the green on hole 11. Water damage is apparent in fairways and greens. The pace of play was not good. Almost 5 hours for two. The range is great, grass, no mats. The Practice green was very nice. The employees were great. The grounds however are not good let alone great. Darlington, Rockleigh or even Ovenpeck are a way better option. Sorry but stay away til the grounds are totally redone. Hurtin for Certain.
