Best Course Ever

This is the best course ever I've played in so far. Their hot deal is ridiculously cheaper than the regular price. For this price, I guarantee you that you can't find a course with this high quality. I would definitely come back.

Great Gorge Is Tough!

Played Rail-Lake. Fun layout! I’ve played Great Gorge a bunch of times, and it is always good. It’s a tough course, and the conditions are very good. Make sure you take a extra look at the yardages, and use enough club. Some holes are very deceiving.

For $47.00, it’s a pretty good deal.

Horrible experience - course nice, staff and policies horrendous

Staff kept us off the course after a thunderstorm cell rolled through. Thunderstorm was done and gone through the area, and sunny skies were out. They made us wait about 75 minutes after the sun came out before they allowed us to get back on the course. It was 5:30 at the time the storm came through and was gone by 6pm. The staff just wanted to go home and not let anybody back out on the course. Pretty unreal. Lack of common sense applied. Won’t be back which is a shame because it’s a nice course. The photos show the time after the storm when we still weren’t allowed back out. I understand safety, but this was stupidity.

Great Value

Great Gorge is definitely a diamond in the rough type of course in northern NJ. The value based on what you pay per round and the course conditions are one of the best in the state. The 3 9-hole courses all have challenging , forgiving, and holes that you would love to play over and over again. I will definitely be back to play in the near future.

Outstanding greens!

You can tell that this resort was special back in the day, and I was pleased to see the course being very well maintained. The bent grass greens were absolutely perfect, maybe rolling on the 11s on the stimpmeter. Fairways we also in terrific conditions. Friendly staff and worth the drive. Don’t let the abandoned resort facilities deceive you and try this fantastic layout for yourself.

Great Course

First time I played there. I played the Rail Course to the Quarry Course, a little confusing to go from the 1st hole to the 2nd, could use better signage, but other than that I will go back.
