I played on Father’s Day so I expected a packed course and slower than ordinary play. Well 2 hours and 20 mins in I was about to tee off on the 7th hole- almost 25 mins. per hole! So where did the course management go wrong? First they grew the fescue as high as I’ve eve seen it- bad move that makes the course too challenging for the caliber of player the course attracts; 2) Little on course presence to make sure that the pace is maintained
As a side note they were totally unprepared for a busy Sunday. No hot dogs available in the clubhouse grill by 1 PM. Outdoor grill dismantled by 2 PM. I was told that the Fodd and Bev manager is off on Sunday and the delivery is on Monday. The employees at the course are nice but you could see the impact of lack of effective management. I’ve always loved this course, but with all the sub $50 tee times ( 18 holes) available at other courses this year, I don’t see myself returning anytime soon. P.S. I walked off after teeing off on 7. Asking me to hit my shots 10 mins apart is a course’s biggest mistake. Takes all the fun out of it...

Living in Hudson County and NOT having $500,00.00 to join Liberty or Bayonne is a drag. Finally having a public course within the county is a true blessing. Finding out that the course is not only beautiful, well maintained and challenging, is only improved upon by the staff. They treated us as if we HAD paid 1/2 million dollars. No question as to the fact that we will be back. Skyway is on top of my local course recommendations!

A nine hole course demanding one keep it in the fairway, or be prepared for unplayables and lost balls in long rough and mounds covered with weeds, especially on the three tough par 5's. Actually, ascending the mounds lining the fairways is prohibited. Regardless, the course is a fair test of one's skills sometimes complicated by the winds which tend to blow regularly. Still, it's a golfing oasis in crowded Jersey City where only the elites can play private Liberty National.

An empty parking lot here doesn’t mean the course is empty since many of the golfers arrive via Lyft/Uber from Hoboken and Jersey City.

The course is in great condition with firm fairways that are wide enough for a fade but a slice gets you in the fescue. Hitting out if the fescue if you can find your ball is really tough. Play a provisional for the errant tee shot.

Greens were reasonably fast and true. The bunkers our 4 some explored were all in good condition.

This course is best when walked as the cart only slows down play if you venture over the mounds or into the fescue.
