Golf Advisor: Top Courses in New Jersey
Got a teatime for 2 On a hot deal for under $30 each. The course was in excellent condition for early November and was truly scenic and lush. Layout was very nice and course played somewhat difficult but fair
Very NIce Experience
Staff was friendly. Course was in excellent shape especially in beginning of November. Fairways, tee boxes and greens all plush and in great shape. Greens especially fast. Got Hot Deal for $29 - worth every penny - even at regular price. Will definitely go back...
Course in great shape for this time of year. Despite recent rain there were very little wet areas. Greens recently aerated and fast. Only complaints are bunkers need better sand and cart paths are deteriorating.
My experience at Great Gorge
Love playing in this course. The scenery is breath taking almost on all tee off. I absolutely recommend this course.
Course is back in great shape
Had played this course before and it was not in great shape. They have done a great changing that around. There are the usual wet holes but that is expected due to the location and not enough sun exposures. All in all it was great
Greens are fast and in great condition. Played Rail and Lake. Friendly staff and good food. A must play!!
A Friendly Place
Everything you could want in a public course and all the people were so nice and helpful. I will definitely return. Hope they can blow the leaves away when they start falling. Some very beautiful views.
Hello, garvint03. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give Great Gorge at Mountain Creek another try in the near future.
Great Day in The Country
This is one of the most beautiful areas in the Northeast. Having 3 nine hole courses with different "personalities" makes it very interesting to say the least. The staff is very friendly. I always enjoy the round no matter how good or bad I play. The views are great as well. Sorry that I have to wait until April to play again. I just wish they were closer to my home.
Windy but Great Shape
First time I played this course and was with my wife. Considering the difficult shape most other courses are in from this summer's weather this course was in excellent condition. Fairways were well maintained with only a rare bare spot. Greens were pristine though tough to read the breaks. The course plays very long from the tips due to the wind which we were told always blows at this course. As it was our first time playing the course some of the holes were a bit challenging to navigate but felt layout would be pretty straightforward if we played a second time.
Pace of play
Having played great gorge several times this summer pace of play has improved greatly course is in great shape all summer. Will play it again before the season ends
Great Gorge Again!
This is one of my favorite golf course here on North Jersey. . Louis, the starter was exceptional and very systematic in handling the tee times. . Played the course in just 4 hours..Fairways and greens are in good shape .
Fairways and Greens are well manicured but the tee boxes are VERY neglected. Not a flat box on the course always teeing off with the ball either above or below your feet. Confusing to navigate around the course as well, not many signs telling you where the next hole is. Decent course for a decent price
Hello, Chris. Thank you for taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass along your feedback to the staff so they can work to make changes. Thanks for visiting us!
Didn't know about this course until 2 weeks ago when I saw a $26 round with cart on Golf Now.
Course is the old Playboy Club course set in the hills of Northern NJ.
It is a 27 hole course alternating between the challenging Quary course cut into an old quary with many elevation changes throughout in a picturesque setting. The Rail 9 is set over an old railway track and the Lakes 9 which is probably the most challenging of the 3. All are set in a beautiful valley using the hillside and valley floor to wonderful advantage with many elevation changes and doglegs. This is a shot makers course which rewards ball placement rather than simply just bombing away. It is superbly maintained and has challenging fast greens requiring a deft touch.
This is not a walking course unless you are in fantastic shape and are prepared to be really tired at the end of your round.
Overall this is possibly one of the best values in NJ for golf. I hope this review doesn't lead to hordes coming in to play because its really nice to have discovered one of the true "hidden gems" of NJ golf! Hard to be selfish with my fellow golfers though. Come play this course.
Conditions are great, course is not overly challenging but far from a walk in the park!
Free warm up basket, great pace of play, greens hold your approach shots well but are very fast while putting, fairways are well maintained!
My only complaint with this course is there is no drinking water anywhere on it! The cart girl is around often but there’s times when a few water jugs would be handy!
Well maintained, very scenic, 27 holes it will be a new favorite!
First time playing
We played lake and quary. Course layout was great. Most of the greens were in great condition.
