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.

Better than i ever imagined ! As a jc resesident i played old pitch and putt and was blown away by the use od such land ! Never thought the county could / would do anything so nice ! BUT too good i found it too difficult for the average golfer and even with a 9 handicap I found it difficult to keep it on the fairways ( lost 5 balls ) ( down tge middle) priced a little high but i def recomend a friend ! Great job County execitive Degiese!

I was able to get a tee time for $20 with a cart 3PM on 7-25-15.
This course has blown my expectations. Now the only negative was pace of play due to high demand. It took about 2 hours and 50 minutes to play this course. I will probably play in the weekday mornings to avoid the peak demand time. My playing partners wanted to play the black tees and i held my own. Hit a 294 yard drive on #8. Just make sure to have your B game since bad shots will hurt your game(fescue). We have a gem in Jersey city folks please take care of the greens.
