Fun weekend round!

Took the trip up to north jersey with my pops to play this course for the first time on a GN hot deal. The course was in great shape, but unfortunately the greens were in the middle of recovering from aeration so the putting surfaces weren’t the best. Not a super long course but the elevation changes certainly cause for a lot of thinking between club choices and make some shots really difficult! Overall, it was a great experience and the course is filled with a bunch of beautiful views as you make your way through the 18. Will definitely be looking to book again in the future!

Generally pleased

Overall very good course.
Conditions were not the best due to the greens having been recently airated.
Fairway were in very good condition.
The bunkers though and there are a lot of them are less than acceptable. They were hard and not groomed. There was more pea gravel
Than sand.
I would play there again once the greens improve.

Timing off

Great course -many interesting hole layouts
Pace of play was slow. Hate getting to a tee box to find the group in front of you still there
No rangers to check time.
Had to leave carts at 100 yard marker on 18 due to an ongoing wedding

Video game golf

Great course condition
Fast but true greens
However most holes on the front nine have blind shot after blind shot

Not one flat spot on the entire course.

"Tough Tips"

Be warned it's 6,000 yards (short) from the tips (blue tees) but don't be mislead. Slope is 135 so the course plays very tough from tips. 1st time I've played the blue tees at this course and now I know why I always have played the white tees. Front nine is hands down, tougher than the back nine. Course itself is in very good shape but the cart path needs a lot of work and can be very dangerous if you don't know the place. This course suits my game so I like playing there. Good luck from the tips though!

Do yourself a favor and play someplace else for the same price

Overall rating - 3/5
Tees - 4/5
Fairways - 4/5
Greens 3.5/5
Bunkers 2.5/5

This was my second round of the day (Played Architects early in the morning and decided to play another round on my way home to NY) I had played here before so I should've known better and went somewhere else.

Let me start by saying this. The couse conditions are pretty good overall so I'm not knocking that. They keep the place pretty tidy and with all the rain in the area the night before, the course was still in pretty good shape.

But, this is an extremely gimmicky golf course. The 4th hole is the dumbest golf hole I've ever played and reason enough for me to never return. As soon as I got to that tee box, I remembered why after last time, I never wanted to play this course again. Good shots are not rewarded at all. Hit a perfect shot and you may lose a ball.

Hate this course. For the same price you can go play a much better course nearby.

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE

My son and I BOUGHT a golf card from the NJ Herald allowing a free round of golf from different golf courses which included Skyview Golf Club (which we have golfed here plenty of times before) in Sparta NJ. Even though the card says NO restrictions, I called Skyview Golf course anyway on May 26, 2019 to see if they would accept the golf card on Memorial Day. I was informed YES and that I/WE would only need to pay a cart fee. We arrived at our scheduled tee time on May 27, 2019 to golf and was told that they were not accepting any promotions. I was told we needed to pay $150 or we could not golf. The money was NOT the issue. We decided to go the Culver Lake Golf Course where they gladly accepted the golf card. We had a great time ! Thank you DIANE !! NOT good business by Skyview Golf Course,,,,, they weren't even busy anyway !! I even asked the employee, Zach, to call his boss, Rafael, because I was so annoyed, but was still denied.

Awesome views

Course was in great shape. First time playing it and there are several holes with blind shots so that made it very challenging. Restaurant is only open on weekends so that was disappointing given its remote location and lack of food nearby. I’d go back

Good Value

Hadn’t played Skyview in a long time. Good layout and challenging holes. Greens are undulating but fair. The course is short, but there are a couple uphill par 4s that will play longer.

North Jersey Favorite

A very fair golf course. Takes a few rounds to get the feel but then it becomes quite enjoyable. Lots of great views and scenery. Wide fairways and well maintained greens.
