The course was very well maintained for the time of year. Retained excellent playability in the wind. It does have a different make-up of holes, having 3 of each par hole. That adds to the variety. Overall, very solid. A recent book was released ranking the 25 best nine hole courses in North America, this course is better than one of the courses on that list, in my opinion.

"Strange round"

Reviewed on

Golf now advertised $22 and someone behind the counter claimed that the price was the incorrect. I had booked the tee time through golf now and they initially weren't willing to honor it. After a few seconds of panic and uncertainty, another staff member told their colleague to give me the price and render the miscommunication through golfnow. It appeared that this had happened before to the location and through golfnow. I would be wary about booking a tee time with Skyway again, as their advertised prices online DO NOT correlate to the rates they want at the clubhouse. BE WARY ABOUT THIS COURSE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE NOT A HUDSON COUNTY RESIDENT!!!!

I can't say enough about Skyway. The course is great. The day I played, I saw the maintenance crew sanding divots in the fairways and fixing ball marks on the greens.

The views are breathtaking. But, the staff at Skyway are absolutely the best. From the time I arrived in the parking lot until the time I left, I felt as if the staff wanted my experience to be more memorable than I did. To me, this is what customer service is all about. I will be back, and next time, and not alone.

Played on a weekday. Fast pace of play. Great links style course within the city—good value too. Slope rating is definitely not accurate. Course is much easier than a slope of 135 for example. More like 125. But regardless a nice and fun track. Friendliest staff too.

...for out of county. $49 to ride 9 holes as a senior?And that's probably why the pace of play was good, not many golfers.

Otherwise a very good golf course. It's difficult from off the fairway, so keep in straight. Greens are excellent.

Skyway is a great course. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I played 18 holes from the gold tee's.

I wish I had played better, the course was challenging but set up for good decisions. The greens, tee boxes and fairways were in very good condition. I did not make many good choices today, but had a blast just the same. The wind blew a little, that made it even more fun. I will be back, thank you Skyway Golf Course staff for making my round so much fun!

First time I played here. Condition of the course was near perfect! I gave 3 stars on pace of play due to a twosome ahead of us was backing up the course. Three Rangers rode past this. I advised one of this concern and no action was taken to speed them up. Course layout is good, but only 9 holes, maybe one too many par 3's, a par 5 that requires a good shot off the gold and black to be on the fairway (love this challenge though). Staff was very friendly! Value for the money is fair. I'm use to better rates and play 18 in the mid-west. Maybe I'm expecting too much. I will definitely play this again and again!
