Farmstead Golf & Country Club - Valleyview/Lakeview Course
The Valleyview nine is the most difficult course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately one hour from New York City. Small greens, tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and out of bounds on seven of nine holes are among the reasons the Valleyview nine is a test. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1979.

Crowded last Friday Sep 6 2013 PM
Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.
Greens were horrible
Should have been a discounted round of golf considering how bad the greens were. Just aerated? Discount. Nice design though
beautiful course in great shape
Great round on Lakeview & Valley courses. Some delays due to an outing but on measure, a wonderful day.
nice place needs improvement
the scenery here is great, I don't know why the starter is always miserable. A group of 2 girls and 2 guys painfully slow backed up the course for a half hour and no ranger in sight. The club 9 was in much better shape than the valley 9
Played on Friday, October 20. And it lasted for hours and 40 minutes. Mainly due to playing with a golfer who never played before. Tried to be helpful but spent most of the time waiting for him to hit or searching for his golf balls. The course itself was in good condition however they were a few tee boxes that were beat up. Greens were recently aerated and sandy.
Farmstead is greatly improved
I have not played Farmstead in at least 15 years and was very happy with the quality of play. The course is well maintained and the bunkers were excellent - they were problematic years ago when I played here. Greens were recently aerated and were bumpy and a bit slower. Some tee boxes were a bit ragged and there was some water damage on a couple of fairways. Overall an enjoyable round. Farmstead is back on my list of courses to play.
