Type Semi-Private
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.

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.

Windy weather

Had a great time playing with a friend and the two we were teamed up with. Big issue you can't bring water on the course with no cooler, but when you get the cart girl she has no ice or bags to put ice in. So by the turn your beer is warm. Minor issue .

Bigger issue that no one repairs their divots on the green. We as a group must of repaired 10 per hole. Feel bad for the grounds crew.

We played Valley Lake view, the valley view the greens were impeccable with 0 imperfections and the layout was challenging. However the lake view greens need some work as they’re a significant amount of ballmarks and imperfections in the green. Overall was a fantastic round.

For me one of the nicest public courses in New Jersey - great layout - friendly staff - enough challenges - lots of wildlife viewing - beautiful setting - fantastic snack house at the turn and restaurant/bar for after golf - all in an historic barnyard setting - a must play

Enjoy Playing Farmstead

The course was in great shape. Four played at $22 each. New carts in 2018. I was surprised how the course rebounded after a tough winter in NJ. I recommend this course for without reservation. We played Lake to Club. The Valley is a shorter course with difficult par 3s. You need to make shots on this course,

Limitations: No driving range.

Worth the Drive

I have always preferred Lakeview to Club View but regardless, the course is always well maintained and management keeps pace acceptable.
