Sunset Valley Golf Course is consistently ranked as one of the best public courses in New Jersey. It is one of four golf courses in the Morris County Parks system and it's considered the toughest. Located in Pompton Plains, the course is nestled in a wooded valley. It has a dramatic topography that provides plenty of ups and downs throughout the golf course. Golfers can expect a variety of elevation changes as well as a few blind shots and forced carries. Strategically placed bunkers come into play along the fast, undulating greens and mature trees line the rolling fairways. Water hazards come into play on a few holes too. Sunset Valley Golf Course's final three holes present one of the area's toughest finishes. The trio begins with the uphill par-5 16th and then finishes with two long par 4s.

Course is fantastic, I’ve played there many times. However, they did not honor my pricing as booked through Golfnow.

Charged $88 when I made the reservation for $67. Not a big deal, but it makes me suspect Golfnow .... so I suppose my issue is with the website, not the course.

Let me start by saying this course is one of the nicest courses in the immediate area. The pace of play was excellent for the first few holes until we had a twosome appeared and completely threw the pace of play off, claiming they were in a league. Up until that point, there were no backups whatsoever and when we contacted the clubhouse about how this group was never ahead of us up until that point, they said it was a league and that they were slow. This course is great, but there are also comparable courses in the area that are cheaper and if the leagues carry this much weight at this course, I'll pass going forward and opt for somewhere else. 3 hours to complete 9 holes is completely absurd.

Happy

Have played there before. Really like the course. Had a t time of 8:30. Got there 8:40 because of traffic. Starter asked what our t time was. We said 8:30. He stated that time slot is here & gone. Told us to go inside and see if they can fit you in. Has a bad attitude. I reiterated there was traffic but he didn't want to hear it. Not sure if I'll go back. My friend feels the same way. His comment was uncalled for and unprofessional. Not appreciated. Not a people person. Things happen in life. No reason to be nasty.

Don’t be above the hole......

Played here quite a few times this year but all before March. Sunset is open year round, weather permitting so I played in January, February and March. Times are tough to get so I haven’t there in a while. The conditions were good, back to normal summer/early fall green condition. The big difference for me as the speed of the greens. I had a tough time adjusting, they seemed very fast to me. I really struggled on the greens. Always a great place to play. We were the first group out, finished in 4:20 and we were pushed a little by the ranger. All of us were walking, add in some bad golf and tough greens - it was tough to finish faster. I wish I could play here more often but as an out-of-county resident its tough to get times.

Fun Track. Needs some TLC.

The course itself is.scenic and challenging. Tight tee shots and tough greens. Some tee boxes need serious repair.

Negative, lots of garbage and debris near tee boxes that should be cleaned up. Trash cans knocked over and beer bottles thrown in the woods.

Greens awful

This course is very challenging, but the greens are not friendly and should not be so hard for a county course.
The slopes are ridiculous, unless you are a foot from the pin, you are putting 3 at least.
