Pinch Brook Golf Course in Florham Park may be a short course, but it should not be underestimated. The layout offers all the challenges of a championship course conveniently wrapped in an executive-length course. Water hazards come into play on nearly every hole, including a pond on the seventh that is shaped like the state of New Jersey. The elevated and undulating greens putt fast and true. They present a test for even the most seasoned golfers. The par-3 holes are particularly tough. Most of them feature strategically placed bunkers fiercely guarding the double-tiered greens, that or a forced carry. The golf course is great for honing your short game skills or for squeezing in a quick but challenging round. Pinch Brook G.C. is hailed by locals as the best short course in northern New Jersey.

Well kept. Ranger keeps it moving.

Love Pinch Brook. They are on top of things. Friendly staff too.

Not the longest course but hit from the blues if you want that—they got it.

The course is good. But too slow due to some beginners didn’t follow course rules and took too long on green and hit multiple balls, ignore other team waiting there. It took over 4 hours to finish the game. Normally 3 hours is enough. The course manager should educate this kind of players and keep normal pace.speed on course.

Short but good course

Good course to work on your swing. Nice layout and course was well maintained. Greens were in good shape but the bunkers were like concrete. Short course but I knew that when booking. Nice walking course and overall was in good shape.
