Great Gorge Golf Club is situated on 500 acres of naturally preserved land, nestled in the Vernon Valley between the Wawayanda and Pochuck Mountain Peaks. Designed by George Fazio in 1970 on behalf of Hugh Hefner for his Great Gorge Playboy Club, the course boasts 3 championship nines: Rail, Lake and Quarry. With four tee box options, the course is manageable for newer golfers yet challenging for lower handicap players, making Great Gorge an ideal venue for all golfers.

poor organization

tee times were double booked, cart shortage led to delayed start.
the quarry course fairway was very bumpy, kept jumping off my seat and hit my head in the cart ceiling numerous times.

$90 for 5+ hr round

For a 5 hour round, I'd rather pay $50 on a public course. Not sure if this was GG's fault or Golfnow's, but they should give us a partial refund. Also, fix the chewed up tee boxes. Not worth $90.

Do not book outings !!!

The GM does not get back to you. Seems like he's over his head with his job. After agreeing on a date he then booked another outing the same day. After sending numerous emails and phone calls that where not returned I requested to speak to his direct boss and they would not give me a contact phone or email. Great corse but the GM is way over his head.

DO NOT HAVE OUTINGS HERE!!!!!!!!

General manager at this place is way over his head. He never returns phone calls or emails. Once I got him on the phone we spoke about having an outing and I gave him the date which he never wrote down so the end result was he booked another outing on that date which totally screwed me up. I asked if I could speak with his superior and I was told no there is nobody that you can talk to. This GM needs to be held accountable for his screwup's. Very nice golf course but don't have an outing there unless you want to get disappointed

Please hire a ranger

The course has a few rough holes - mainly on Quarry nine, but overall nice course and well kept. Cart staff seemed frenzied and disorganized. The new restaurant and bar, Jed’s Hut, is a tremendous improvement versus last year. HOWEVER - the pace of play is absolutely brutal. If you enjoy 6 hour plus rounds this is the place for you. Groups were backed up and no one there to speed things up. That’s been my gripe with Great Gorge my past few rounds. After this round i will not be returning. One of the cheaper options in the area but I’d rather pay more to be off course in 4 1/2 hours.
