  104 Reviews

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.

This is the 3rd time I've played Skyway, and I find the course fairly challenging, but the level of players on this course tend be mostly beginners or very inexperienced golfers. We waited on EVERY shot during the 9 holes and it took 2:45 to play--that's insane! I was paired with 3 nice guys, but one guy had NEVER played on a golf course (he said he's hit balls on a driving range, but I saw no evidence that he knew which end of the club was up). I highly suggest that the course cut down a lot of the long fescue, because most of these golfers will NEVER give up looking for a golf ball that they will NEVER find. The rangers have to do something to push play along faster, and the course needs to encourage (insist) that all new golfer (male or female) play from the most forward tees.

Wow!!! Buddy invited me to check out JC's newest addition and they got it right! Awesome backdrop on a challenging course. Felt like we were in Scotland -not a tree to be found and target golf as the rough (fescue) will swallow your ball if you miss the fairway. Both greens and fairways have undulations and the wind can kick up to throw another curve at you...staff was friendly and it was a great experience and I plan on visiting again soon...

I played skyway for first time today. It was a virtually surreal experience. Having worked 2 summers there in 1974 and '75, I remember what this place looked like. It is now a beautiful, thoughtful, challenging golf course. The first nine there was barely a 4mph wind, by the second it was 10-12 w a gust or two. The course is so well designed, that the second nine played very differently , and I used different clubs on every hole. I could not be happier that the next generation of Hudson County golfers get to learn the greatest game at this awesome place.
