Sunset Valley Golf Course is consistently ranked as one of the best public courses in New Jersey. It is one of four golf courses in the Morris County Parks system and it's considered the toughest. Located in Pompton Plains, the course is nestled in a wooded valley. It has a dramatic topography that provides plenty of ups and downs throughout the golf course. Golfers can expect a variety of elevation changes as well as a few blind shots and forced carries. Strategically placed bunkers come into play along the fast, undulating greens and mature trees line the rolling fairways. Water hazards come into play on a few holes too. Sunset Valley Golf Course's final three holes present one of the area's toughest finishes. The trio begins with the uphill par-5 16th and then finishes with two long par 4s.

Outstanding Layout

A true gem in Morris County. One of the best Muni course in New Jersey. Very well maintained. Tee’s and fairways are in wonderful condition. Greens are challenging and true. Keep you ball below the pin or watch out. Worth the trip. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Home base

I’ve played sunset many times it’s always impeccable especially for a county corse. Pace of play was a bit slow for us but overall we had a great round..Greens are very challenging lots of downhill puts if you aren’t skilled into the approach shot.

Current conditions

The golf course thus far is far below the great conditions I have known in the past. I would presume that the Morris County budget has played a big role in the down turn..........

Circus greens

The course is in fantastic shape and I feel like I’m getting a great deal but THE GREENS were all massive with multiple tiers. I dont think I had a single putt with less than 2 breaks. It was fun for a while until I added up my total putts. I highly recommend this course to intermediate and advanced players.
