Pinch Brook Golf Course in Florham Park may be a short course, but it should not be underestimated. The layout offers all the challenges of a championship course conveniently wrapped in an executive-length course. Water hazards come into play on nearly every hole, including a pond on the seventh that is shaped like the state of New Jersey. The elevated and undulating greens putt fast and true. They present a test for even the most seasoned golfers. The par-3 holes are particularly tough. Most of them feature strategically placed bunkers fiercely guarding the double-tiered greens, that or a forced carry. The golf course is great for honing your short game skills or for squeezing in a quick but challenging round. Pinch Brook G.C. is hailed by locals as the best short course in northern New Jersey.

Best course for the best buck

Let me start off that Pinch brook golf course is the best golf course I have been to in a long time! Best public golf course around, the course is always at it’s finest when the weather doesn’t beat it up. The pro shop is welcoming with an amazing staff, the snack bar was very clean and very pleasing with amazing staff member who help me and my family. Also can not forget the amazing prices I wish I can give this place more stars all around best golf course!!!

Short but challenging

Had a 6:30 tee time and took our 4-some 4 hours. Challenging greens made up for the short holes. Only 2 par 5s.

Good Solid Course, Par 65

Finished our round in 4:15 which wasn't too bad. I hear rounds can be long though. Course was in above average condition, particularly for a public course. Par 65 course so a lot of par 3s. Good course over all with friendly staff.

No rangers - very very slow

Course in quite nice condition - but no rangers so playing 5.5 hours for a par 65. It should be 4.5 hours max. Great staff ( the few that were there).

Labor Day outing

Holidays are usually busy, I get it, but not one ranger out there to manage pace of play? 94 degrees out and every single water cooler was empty, and to make matters worse, I did not see a beverage cart not once. Decent facilities, well kept yes but I hated this place.

Good Beginner Course

Course is close to home and fairly priced. Not that challenging or long, but is worth an 18 once in a while. Pace of play can be slow at times, lots of walkers and seniors play here.

Good Muni

I live nearby and use PB as my base course. It is a solid municipal course. Like all Morris County courses you can expect to tee off at your scheduled time, the greens are always in above average shape for a public course and the pace is reasonable (4:10). When the course conditions can be handled by the grounds keeper the fairways and roughs are typically in good shape. The bunkers can be so so. The staff is great and they try hard to get you out if you just walk up.

The course is a par 65 and has nine par 3s, which can be a little boring. It's an easy walking course. I particularly like the front, holes 2-6. They are fun. I have often played here with my wife who is about a 30 handicap. She doesn't get frustrated and there is enough for me to have a good time.

The only draw back to the course is the last three holes are par 3s. I don't like to put the driver away after 15. With a county card the pricing is reasonable but if I have the time I go to Flanders Valley for about the same price. Out of county prices might seem high for PB.
