Beautiful, Professionally Managed, Challenging but Fair
This is a beautiful course that makes great use of the natural terrain and water to provide a captivating, challenging and in many ways breathtaking golfing experience. It is narrow, has tons of water, the tee boxes and fairways are in great shape, it has impeccable greens that are hard to read . . . and did I say it was beautiful.
This is the first time that we've played this golf course, but it won't be the last. The only weakness of the course is that many of the sand traps have a very thin layer of sand and then its hard pan. But that's it. The greens are challenging but they are fair. The staff in the pro shop, at the starter’s hut and the grill are really friendly.
We are from Austin, Texas and have played golf courses all over the US. This is one of the best public courses that we have ever played . . . including privately owned public courses. It's hard to believe that this is a "county" course, because it is run better than many country clubs.

Slow play no ranger
Love this course but yesterday was awful
Teed off at 3:40
Spent the next 18 holes trailing a foursome that barely moved. At the 4th tee when we had been waiting 10-15 minutes per hole I called the pro shop and requested a ranger. We wanted to play through with two open holes ahead of the foursome and since they weren't offering we felt the course should intervene. Well the pro shop told me waiting this long per hole was normal (really?) said they'd send someone out, but no one ever came. At the 14ty hole the same foursome was found pulled over listening to loud radio music buying beers from the cart girl and stopped play after teeing off. When they saw us advancing they continued to finish the hole. This course needs a ranger and also really needs to listen to customers when they call in from the course. I have never had to call about slow play in 20 years of golfing and Berkshire did not respOne. Extremely disappointed in the service ! May rethink playing another round here

Another good experience at BV...
Ive enjoyed playing BV a number of times before and this round was no different. Course was in excellent condition including the greens.
It is a visually stunning setting and most of the holes offer food for the imagination.
Pace of play was a little slower than I hoped for but it was a holiday weekend so I'll give a pass on that note.
Def worth another visit soon.

Excellent course. Fun to play
This is a must play course in northern NJ. Beautiful scenery and layout. Varied holes with elevation changes, water hazards and some narrow fairways. Challenging but fair. Pace was a little slow because foursome ahead of us playing from blacks, 6800+ and they shouldn't have. No ranger out on course was only complaint. Friendly and professional staff.

Great value and a beautiful course
This is a great course with nice facilities and the friendliest most accommodating staff. The pace was a little slow but it was a busy day and with three foursomes in front of us and two foursomes behind us that is to be expected. I was a little disappointed that the grill in the clubhouse was closed on such a busy day but they did have cold food and snacks. The course is challenging with water holes difficultly placed traps and some tough doglegs. It's nicely maintained especially for how highly trafficked it is. All in all I had a great time and will go back.

This course is beautiful.... Slightly challenging, keeps you on your toes but not too difficult.
People who slice alot will have to bring alot of balls.
