Great course

Great course, friendly staff. Can get crowded and play slow on weekends but that’s every course in north jersey. Course is always well maintained & the bar has great food.

Dreadful etiquette

This may have been the worst etiquette I’ve ever seen on a golf course.

People backing up every hole to flirt with the cart girl the cart girl takes 20 minutes to make one drink there’s music being played by people at the tee box and refuse to turn it down or off. No one is yelling fore for a bad shot I was hit once and my cart was hit once. This course is usually so much better but they’re letting drunk d bags play. I will never return to this crap hole

Gem of a Course

PVGC is outstanding from the get-go. Staff is friendly, professional and makes you feel welcome- and they are always busy! Great attitudes from all make for a very nice experience.

Course is manicured to a point that private clubs would be envious.

The bar, especially outside patio on weekends is a destination that we enjoy regularly. Good food, great drinks, service and live bands!!!

Top notch!

Excellent course..bunkers need better sand

Everything about this course is pristine,
My only problem is the sand in the bunkers..great value for a public county course.

Local gem

An excellent course and a great value! Truly amazing condition the course is in and it’s hard to believe it’s a public course! We’re very satisfied and we’ll go back against.
