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.

Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.
Great course played it in colder weather for a cheaper price def gonna come back in a few months and play again!!
It Starts With The Staff
You always get a warm greeting from the agent on duty. The 're all pleasant and try to satisfy your special needs. This always makes me feel good about playing here. It is a 55 minute ride from my house. The tees are obviously rotated constantly as I have never hit off a bare spot. Choice of tees is quite fair and they are flat. The fairways have no bare spots and the first cut is very fair. Yardage markers are within 4 yards of my laser rangefinder. This time of year, you hate leaves. Not a problem as they blow them away. Have not lost any balls under leaves. The pin placements are also ver fair and not with 6 feet of any edge. The speed will vary from course to course but not radically different. They have been rolled so no bumping around. All in all, a very pleasant under 4 hour round is usual.
My round at Farmstead
Lake/Club: First hole is a temp, several greens aerated and no one mentioned that. Practice green in great condition but not reflective of most of the greens on the course. Pace of play was atrociously slow. I could have taken a nap between holes.
I play here often and do enjoy it. Greens were a little ruff in areas but overall had a nice day out. Will be back!
Farmstead is one of my favorite courses to play. It's always in great shape from tee to green. Extremely well maintained. Highly recommend! .
The course is in very good condition except for the tee boxes. They need some work.
played sunday!!!!!!! payed 69 $ the greens were terrible no wait slow- horrific !!! they were so bad ! the hole its self looked like it was cut with a saw ! very very disappointed with the greens! JUST TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
very disappointing! in may-june course was very good! but now the greens were slow and in terrible condition!!!
course is really good! would give 5 stars but greens are inconsistent and always slow!!!!!!!!!!! use a heavy putter or put some lead tape on it -2 pieces before u play!!!!! great deal with golfnow! $$$$$
I very nice course
I like the country like feel to the course. Most of the time you can find your ball if you leave the fairway. Water comes into play on several holes. There are two holes on the back 9 of the club 9 where there is a finger of water that protrudes into the fairway that if you haven’t played the course before you wouldn’t know it’s there so be careful. I thought that most of the par 3’s were too long but I loved the wide fairways. In general the conditions were good the fairways were in good shape. The were quite slow and bumpy, they could use a good cut and should be rolled. Overall a fine day on a very nice course.
Golfer friendly course
Played yesterday. I enjoyed playing this course because it is a friendly challenging course for every type of golfer and always in really good shape for as much play it gets.. I recommend you play this really enjoy it !
