Water comes into play on six holes on the Lakeview nine at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately an hour from New York City. None is more challenging than the closing hole, a very short -- but very intimidating -- par 3 over water. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1965.

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

Wonderful course for my first round of the year. Pretty great condition for early March. This course has tough placements and some tight shots are required with all the water that comes into play.

Gotta check it out!

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.

Walked

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.
