Lincoln Park West (Skyway GC) | Skyway Golf Course

  104 Reviews

An experience like no other. Wonderful city views of Newark, The Pulaski Skyway and other bridges, the bay, boats and The World Trade Center. Had a pleasant round with wonderfully kept fairways and greens. A very slow foursome in front of us at 3 but they let us play through and our twosome finished nine in well under 2 hours. I live in VT but this round of city golf was one of my most enjoyable all year.

I was able to book this course same day on Golfnow which was very accommodating as I wanted to get out and play. This course was pretty well kept, good amount of divots in the fairways but the greens were nice. Some holes were pretty challenging especially the par 5's. There is a good amount of sand traps and rough/tall grass so you have to be on point! Fun course overall with different scenery as opposed to some of the courses up north or out west.

Course very challenging laid out nicely love the local character ... Stay out of the fescue .. Championship caliber pin placements... Good luck reaching the fairway if the winds in the wrong direction on number eight ... Enjoy

This was my first time playing this course & only my fifth time on a course period. Not very forgiving & you will lose a lot of balls in the rough. You need to be straight with you tee shots. Very hilly, you will lose sight of the flag easily. Fescue everywhere. 8th hole is an absolute nightmare. Good luck out there. Keep them straight & long

In the last 10-15 years Hudson County gave birth to two private golf courses, both of which too expensive except for the 1%. Hudson was the only county with no public golf course. This all changed with the opening of the Skyview Gc. This was a flat area with soil infused with toxic waste, so bad that ground underneath was on fire for years. It took the company that puts oil well fires out to kill the fire. What has been built is simply amazing. They must have brought millions of cubic yards of soil to make this course. It was worth it. Though the area is confined it does not feel that way, for the most part when you play the course you see only the hole you are playing. The mounding and the elevation changes make it so. I should mention the course is 9 holes, 3 par 4's, 3 par 5's and 3 par 3's. I played shortly after the course opened and the conditions were superb. There are 5 sets of tees making it playable for most golfers. It is too early for a slope rating but I would suggest it would be in the 120's. The views are terrific the Pulaski Skyview is the dominant view you also see the new WTC and the Empire State Bld. from various holes. Hole # 5 is a longe par 4 I think the toughest hole, the first par 5 dogleg left is treacherous with the second shot, # 8 requires two water carries to green. If you play 18 holes play from different tee to make it more interesting.
