Type Semi-Private
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.

Great course, fantastic staff

Enjoyed a fourth of July round with my wife. Couldn't have been more pleased with the course conditions. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Women's tees are very fair. Will return often. A hidden gem in Sussex Co.

Great course

Farmstead is a great track. Always in good shape - greens a little slower than in spring. Only criticism is that they did not let us tee off early despite course being empty for what seemed like 30mins. So we got caught in late day rain as a result. In addition it slowed up groups rather than spacing them out given the open tee times. Might be a GolfNow thing, but if there are several tee times open in front of us, most courses let us out early which is considerate. Hope this could happen at Farmstead. That said, it’s a great track and always in great shape..

Nice course , slow play

Loved everything about the course but pace of play. A five hour round after speaking to the ranger. I was signed up for 9 holes and agreed to 18 after being assured pace of play was good.
