I play Skyway on and off during the season as its really close to my house. Of the 20 times or so that I have played this course in the last 3 years, today it was in it's worse possible condition.
The bunkers had very little sand, you could actually see the drainage pipes in them. The fairways were chewed up. And the worst part were the greens. They extremely inconsistent and half of them were sanded down like crazy.
I really hope this was an off day and the course can go back to the pristine condition it was in (especially the greens).

He would play this course again.

This is a really high-quality nine hole golf course. Don’t expect much from the off course facilities, but the course itself is a very fun and beautiful challenge set in the middle of a very industrial area. I wouldn’t be surprised if enemies of the Sopranos were buried during the course construction :)

Fescue was high, greens are fast and true, wind can be a big factor. I’m looking forward to playing it again now that I know the layout

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!
