Ron Jaworski's Valleybrook Golf Club is one of South Jersey's most popular public courses. It's a local favorite not only because of the affordable rates but also for the challenging design. The diverse terrain provides the classic layout with a mix of flat and hilly holes. On some holes you can expect elevation changes from tee to green. It's a golf course that will keep you on your toes. It will test your accuracy with its narrow, tree-lined fairways and the elevation changes throughout the course make proper club selection essential. Water hazards also appear on nine occasions. The course has appeal for players of all skill levels. It's player-friendly enough for beginners while advanced players will enjoy the many risk-reward opportunities. There is also a driving range available at Valleybrook Golf Club.

Very nice course! Although a outing was scheduled during our round and there were people randomly riding around in golf carts on the course while we were trying to play which was annoying.

The course has some bad spots throughout the course. The greens are slow and bumpy. Don't really roll nice. I would only play with a good hot deal. There are better options.

This was the 2nd course Ron owns and again great value to play. Greens rolled good and consistent. Bunkers were comsistent as well. This course rewards fairways and punishes you in the rough. But it was fair. I will definitely use my passport to play here again

Been a long time since I have to deal with slow pace, but this one was pushing 5 hours plus, as it was bumper to bumper. We eventually stopped after 12 holes, as we were heading at Atlantic City for the evening, and at that point in the round we were at 3.5 hours.

It does have lots good hole, elevation changes, the course was in good shape with recent rains... just a slow pace and I wished we could have finished.

When you pay $24 for a round of 18 you don’t expect that much but what a treat this gem is. The course was in great shape and the staff has made so many wonderful changes to give this place a private club feel. There’s no longer that feel that your slumming it when playing at Valleybrook. Great job

the staff overbooks tee times in the winter when there is a warm day. As a result, it leads to slow pace of play due to multiple all having the same tee time or a window of about 4 minutes b/w tee times. There all about money, I understand that, but come on now for the price we pay to play, overbooking to increase profits impacts negatively upon customers.

Too many leaves on the greens, but bigger problem was too many leaves in vicinity of greens. Hole # 15 and 16 need some redesigning. The landing area for the tee shot is too small and the bushes in the vicinity of that landing area are just plain annoying and unnecessary. The short layup tee shot necessary on #16 is absurd. I’ve never played another course with such a short layup. Maybe a redesign is necessary for this hole. Overall I like the course and have played many times long ago.

This course was phenomenal definitely one of the prettiest courses I have played in South Jersey. And the golf now deal made it even better. I've play some expensive courses in the south Jersey and central jersey area and Valleybrook is definitely among that class. Beautiful greens,gorgeous fairways and difficult layout. Highly recommend playing this course at least once.

Course was in great shape, staff were great people, price was excellent but the houses were very close most of the time , which made it hard to concentrate on your shot when you can't go for it cause you don't want to hit someone's property and damage it.

The course was in excellent shape. Played in November but you would think it was May because the condition of the course was so good. The weather has been good so I've played a lot of courses recently but this was by far in the best shape.
