Rating 73.2

Berkshire Valley has a scenic location in the Highlands region of northern New Jersey. It is known as one of best public golf courses in the area. The course is perched atop the ridge of Green Pond Mountain, providing a dramatic topography for a challenging round of golf. The front of the golf course was carefully carved from a hillside, featuring narrow fairways that place a premium on accuracy. The first five holes are particularly scenic as well as formidable. There are some open holes that play along the cliffs, subjecting them to the prevailing winds, one of these is the intimidating par-5 third. The Berkshire Valley golf course finishes with its signature hole. This hole can be deceiving since it has a generous fairway, but the second shot is uphill to a tough green.

Tough track

Tough course. Rough isn't too bad but don't go in the fescue. Nice true greens and not very fast I cant wait to play again.

Best course in north jersey

Such a great course. The layout is different, cut into a mountain. Fairways were beautiful. Greens were fast, tiered, and challenging. All around great course.

Best in Morris County

This is by far the best course in Morris County, and maybe even the best value within a 30 mile radius. Course conditions never seem to disappoint. A pretty open course (except the first 5 cliff holes), and challenging and fun for all skill levels.

The best value by far

I love to play different courses. I would get bored playing one course at a country club over and over again. Berkshire is always a must play 2-3 times a year. It is fantastic shape. The views are amazing and it is a great layout (230yrd par 3 #2 is not ideal but had to fit it in the landscape). Today, was no exception. Rain soaked from day before, the course dried up and only had some areas of watch left. Cudos to the grounds crew! Greens rolled quick and pure. And all for $80!!! That makes this course the best rated around. Bally is $150 and the greens are pot marked. No thanks. Just don’t tell too many people!

Scammed by cashier, almost

I booked online via Teeoff.com for four sum at $77 per player = $308. When I was checking in, the cashier said my price is $380. Questioned why and he said Teeoff price was wrong. I complained and the price came down to $320 and again to $317. Why do I have to in a postion to re-negotiate the green fee when it was done at the Teeoff website. Disgusting experience.

The Berk

Nice track. The green's and bunkers were in good condition. The first few holes and the last few holes will determine how you score for the day.

Misty morning

Not a bad day. Started out as a misty day but the cloud cover kept it cool. Pace was pretty good, no real waiting and finished in just over 4 hours. Course has a putting green and a driving range - but no drivers, irons only. Cart girl was out and we saw her a couple times during our round. Conditions on the course was good. Greens in great shape. Played many times before and it is always a nice round.

Outstanding, challenging, scenic, great bargain.

I've never seen so many people working to make a course beautiful. First time I've been on a course with maintained sand traps in a year. Hadn't played there in 25 years and I will be back soon.

Very scenic and challenging course. If you play from the Black or Blue tees even more challenging. Course was in great shape. Played a bit slow before some rain scared most players away. Play this course you'll enjoy it.
