Lincoln Park West (Skyway GC) | Skyway Golf Course

  107 Reviews

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.

He would play this course again.

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.

The course was very well maintained for the time of year. Retained excellent playability in the wind. It does have a different make-up of holes, having 3 of each par hole. That adds to the variety. Overall, very solid. A recent book was released ranking the 25 best nine hole courses in North America, this course is better than one of the courses on that list, in my opinion.
