About Mountain Creek Resort

Mountain Creek Resort is a four-season destination in Vernon, N.J., just an hour outside of New York City. It features a waterpark; the 27-hole Great Gorge course, which was purchased in 2018; the Treescape Aerial Adventure Park, home to zip-lining, climbing obstacles and rope walks; and a Bike Park of 52 trails that is loaded with jumps and 1,000 feet of vertical drop. The course was part of the old Playboy Club in the 1970s and 1980s, attracting famous names such as Dean Martin and Bob Hope for a game. It’s a beautiful property with wonderful mountain views and elevation changes. Guests can stay in the Appalachian hotel or enjoy more space and privacy in a one- to three-bedroom townhome rental at Black Creek Sanctuary. Both accommodations offer outdoor pool and hot tub facilities.

Well worth the drive and cost.

Classic layout in great condition for the price point. We played Quarry-Rail. Sand traps were nicely framed, contoured, with actual sand. Nice definition between fairways and rough....wish it were closer, but worth the drive. If you haven't played in a while, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I wish the new owners well.

Disappointed

In a Corona Virus age, after a long drive from NYC, we found a dismal food facility and very dirty bathrooms. Did not feel safe!

just golf

if you just want to play golf, then this course will bring out your best game as it is tight. the clubhouse is one of the most disgusting i have ever seen and they should be embarrassed, the restrooms are a disgrace.

Good Course

Tee boxes and greens were in very good shape. Some if the fairways had issues. But did not affect good hits.
