Detailed description of Farmstead Golf & Country Club | Farmstead Golf Course

Farmstead Golf & Country Club is a semi-private, 27-hole golf course located in Lafayette, New Jersey. The club offers three nine hole courses that are played in three eighteen hole combinations. They are The Valleyview Nine, The Lakeview Nine, and The Clubview Nine.

The course was designed by Byron Phoebus, The first nine to open was Clubview which opened in 1960, followed by Valleyview in 1965 and Lakeview in 1986.

The Valley Nine is the most challenging of the three nines. This course has tree-lined fairways. The Lake Course has tight fairways and fast greens. The Club Course has tight, tree-lined fairways. Water hazards come into play on all three courses.

Valleyview: Par 34 and 2,851 yards in length
While shorter in length, Valleyview is the most challenging layout with its hilly terrain, narrow tree-lined fairways, and small undulating greens. Accurate tee shots are a must, as out of bounds comes into play on 7 of the 9 holes. Valleyview finishes with three extremely challenging holes. The 9th hole, a 433-yard par 4, with out of bounds to the right as trees guard the left, from a good tee shot the player will still be confronted with a lengthy blind second shot down hill to an undulating green. A par here would be something to be proud of.

Lakeview: Par 35 and 3,310 yards in length
Lakeview has 6 holes where water can become a factor, and features 4 doglegs, which require an accurate tee shot. Lakeview #2, a slight dogleg to the right, par 4 which measures 380 yards (middle tees) requires a precise tee shot to the center or left center of the fairway. In order to set up a demanding second to a narrow green which is guarded by water and bunkers to the left and out of bounds on the right. Lakeview #9 finishes with a 124-yard par 3 over water, a very intimidating hole for most players.

Clubview: Par 36 and 3,370 yards in length
Clubview is the original nine holes, it offers players a traditional mix of par 3s, 4s, and 5s. Although with most of the holes, straight away, accurate tee shots are a must with its mature tree lined fairways. Clubview finishes with two demanding holes, #8 a 432-yard par 4 requires a lengthy tee shot, which will confront the player with yet another lengthy second shot over water to the green. The 9th hole, a172 yard par 3 requires a proper club selection and accuracy, as water surrounds the green.

I hadn't played this course in a number of years and was gratified to see some of the positive changes that were made. The price was more than fair and the speed of play on a Wednesday was excellent. The food in the clubhouse along with the staff was top drawer. I along with my fellow golfers will definitely return.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level

Farmstead Lake/Club is excellent, but any time you have to play Valley, its just not worth it. It feels like they just threw it together to have a third nine and only a par 33. Just too many par 3's. If they had told me I would be playing Valley when I calle for the reservation, I would have gone elsewhere.
