Rating 71.8

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.

cart rental pricing

booked with golf now for $51 and then was charged
$28 for cart. which included a an extra fee for riding solo because the two other players did NOT show.
I found that excessive and a bit unfair.

Greens

Challenging and nice layout. You can see effort in upkeep, still early in the season and the course looked great. Friendly staff. My only issue was the unfair greens. You will understand once you play.

A Challenging Back 9

Course in good shape for mid-Jan. play. Back nine is nice and challenging - lots of up and down on the back nine so be prepared if you’re walking. Home # 11 is a drivable par 4 (approx. 275+ downhill). I plan to play this course again.
