About Mountain Creek Resort

Mountain Creek Resort is a four-season destination in Vernon, N.J., just an hour outside of New York City. It features a waterpark; the 27-hole Great Gorge course, which was purchased in 2018; the Treescape Aerial Adventure Park, home to zip-lining, climbing obstacles and rope walks; and a Bike Park of 52 trails that is loaded with jumps and 1,000 feet of vertical drop. The course was part of the old Playboy Club in the 1970s and 1980s, attracting famous names such as Dean Martin and Bob Hope for a game. It’s a beautiful property with wonderful mountain views and elevation changes. Guests can stay in the Appalachian hotel or enjoy more space and privacy in a one- to three-bedroom townhome rental at Black Creek Sanctuary. Both accommodations offer outdoor pool and hot tub facilities.

Need better ownership

Staff did the best they could with what they had. Massive delays to tee off because many carts were dead. This slowed pace of play. Only got 9 holes in due to the delay and slow pace and now it gets dark at 4:30. Range balls are atrocious, maybe bring your own cut up balls to get rid of.

45 min delay

Had a 12:18 tee time but they did not let us out until after 1pm. They were short on carts too. Bathroom is dirty and smells awful, they look like they were never cleaned since the course reopened last year. Yuk!!
