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.

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.
