The Clubview nine, which opened in 1963, is the original course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, located in northwest New Jersey, approximately one hour from New York City. Offering a traditional mix of par 3s, par 4s and par 5s, accuracy is key on the Byron Phoebus-designed course. The Clubview nine closes with two very demanding holes, the long par-4 eighth, with an approach shot over water, and the par-3 ninth, which is surrounded by water.

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.

Interesting

Have no comment on amenities due to pandemic.
Played here alone and was tough to figure out holes. otherwise was exellent experience. Could use more and better signage on holes and location. possibly graph of hole at tee box. Fairways are hard for May. Water holes are very scary with some long carries.

great to be out

course layout fantastic, conditions beautifully maintained, greens divit free, and sand traps are beautiful to be in. ponds can use a little algea treatment but overall a great golfing experience. Just a little nervous seeing so few of the staffers without face masks.

Lake View nine was great, good condition and some pretty holes. The Valley nine was pretty weak, so if you play this course make sure you play the Lake and Club nines. Staff is always very friendly and helpful.
