Water comes into play on six holes on the Lakeview nine at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately an hour from New York City. None is more challenging than the closing hole, a very short -- but very intimidating -- par 3 over water. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1965.

Crowded last Friday Sep 6 2013 PM

Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.

First Time Playing

Great layout

Really great layout and the greens rolled true. The staff was super friendly. First time I was 20 yards face to face with a Bear. But really 6 dollars for a beer , that’s why people sneak their beer in.

TERRIBLE customer service

I mistakenly made an error in booking my tee time on golfnow. Meant to make it for 6/6 but instead made it for 5/30. I realized this error when my credit card was charged the full amount on 6/1. Called the course to explain the situation and asked for a rain check but was shut down with no alternative solution. The course was WIDE open with available tee times the first few hours of daylight that day. I understand this was MY error but work with me just a little.

Picturesque quality course

Farmstead is a family owned quality course in northern NJ.
Course is extremely well maintained, just gorgeous! Well worth the money.
Everyone at Farmstead is friendly and helpful! Had a wonderful time on Memorial Day weekend. Can't wait to return for another round!

Rough

The length of the rough was that of a US Open. Even if you were a few feet off the fairway you couldn’t find your ball. Also the tee boxes were in bad shape.

Rangers needed, children on course.

I am all for teaching your toddler how to golf, and glad to see some father son bonding. However, please do it in your back yard or at your local park.

When the course is jammed and you’re letting your toddler play as if he was an actual player, the course should have stepped in. Multiple foursomes were held up by this and there is no enforcement in sight.

Course was very marshy but fun. Was my second time playing here where pace was an issue. Can live with it for the price.
