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.

Farmstead is greatly improved

I have not played Farmstead in at least 15 years and was very happy with the quality of play. The course is well maintained and the bunkers were excellent - they were problematic years ago when I played here. Greens were recently aerated and were bumpy and a bit slower. Some tee boxes were a bit ragged and there was some water damage on a couple of fairways. Overall an enjoyable round. Farmstead is back on my list of courses to play.

First Time Playing

Great Course

It was my first time playing this course. I kept seeing all of the reviews and I couldn't resist the price. The course is setup with three nine hole courses which keeps the course moving. I will definitely be coming here more often.

beautiful setting, good track, decent conditions

The location is exceptional - rustic NJ with a ton of land and lakes, hills, and valleys. The course is well maintained and with the exception of too many ball marks that were not repaired (unfortunately typical these days and not really something the course can control) the greens rolled true and had decent speed (not lightning quick but not too slow or fuzzy). We played at 4:30pm and unfortunately the tee times were running 15 minutes late due to a cart shortage - disappointing given the fact that we knew we were pressed for time already. And the first 2-3 holes were backed up but then the pace of play got better as the front 9 went on. Overall a worthwhile experience.

good day of golf

greens needed divot care, fairways in good condition, rough well trimmed. course is always fun and a little different on each hole. Lots of wildlife. Little algae accumulation on corners of water holes, but generally not buggy. efficient staff and good grill and restaurant food and service.

Good

Course was in good condition considering it rained a lot the day before especially the greens. The starter wasn’t too friendly and I never liked the fact they don’t let you take the cart until a few minutes before tee time. Hot dog was yummy

Tee box and greens

If you like teeing off on a hilly patchy and uncut tee box this is the place for you. Greens patchy course layout not fun at all. Terrible drainage.

Excellent value, good course

Comparable to many much higher priced courses in the area. Lake/club was very enjoyable. Only issue is ball marks on greens not repaired. But that's on the golfers. Beautiful setting and great course conditions overall. Will be a regular
