Absolutely stunning picturesque property. Nice clubhouse, perfect little driving range to warm up before your round. Staff was welcoming and extremely friendly. The starter was an awesome man who explained the lay of the land and gave some great pointers. Weather was great, the course gets a ton of play between regulars and they do a lot of outings there- (wish people fixed their divots and ball marks). Met 2 greenskeepers during our round who were very friendly and appreciative men who really seem to love their job (and they do a great job on the course). The cart girl was friendly. A nice mixture of tight challenging holes and open fairways, long par 3s that will make you think a little. The course is a panoramic dream, especially with the fall foliage setting in. We crossed paths with a NJ Black Bear who was more scared of us then we were of him- thank goodness LOL. WILL RETURN 1000000%

Well maintained course. Clubhouse and starter were friendly. Very crowded when I was there and I had to wait several minutes between shots. Normally that would prevent me from returning but I shot a good round so I may have to return to try and repeat my success.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chriszuc0926 Glad we went up!!
I have been told by a few people that this course was worth the ride up to play and it did not disappoint.
Beautiful conditions, great course layout and makes you think about your shot on certain holes. Can not wait to go up and play in the fall when leaves start to change.
Only complaint and has nothing to do with the course is:
One word for all player "fix your ball marks""

by John5420629 Expensive, but it's worth it at least once
One of the nicer courses I've played on: Beautiful scenery, great conditions, challenging holes. Food was good, too, with a barbecue at the 9th hole and a hot dog/hamburger stand at a later hole.
As much as I enjoyed this course, the staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. The cashier insisted that we'd only booked for three, even though a player partner insisted that he'd called and added a fourth after booking here. No matter who was right, she didn't handle it well, nor did she explain it well. When it looked like we were going to have one man getting shut out, we went straight to the starter, who straightened it out.
The marshal was nice enough, but he followed us around for four or five holes, watching us play and reminding us about the pace even though we're actually a pretty quick group that speeds up even more when players are on our back.
Sad to say, I'm probably not going back there anytime soon, but the course is so nice I wouldn't discourage anyone from giving it a go.

Best public golf course I've played on so far. I'm definitely coming to this course more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicholas7876540 Absolutely AMAZING - Play this course ASAP
First off....Mike the Starter sets the tone for a great round of golf. Always friendly and takes the time to learn your name once you start to become a regular. I look forward to saying "hey Mike" every time I pull in to the driveway.
Now, on to the course....this incredible course. Overall, I cannot think of a single thing wrong with this place. The scenery is second to none, with the first 5 holes playing along the side of an elavated cliffside and the remaining holes perfectly laid out across the property. The tee boxes and fairways are always cut with care and the rough is tough but fair. I always think the greens could run a LITTLE quicker but they are true and always placed in challenging locations. Today, I was 78 with three 3-putt bogeys so could have been much better. That said, it was my best round here from the Blues (6,400 yards and change). I have been to BV at least 8 times this summer and simply do not get tired of this place. Every single hole is legit, there are no dummy holes or any holes that seem forced in or out of place. Just a classic course and one that will be even more breathtaking in the Fall when the leaves change.
The price today was $70 which in my opinion is well worth it. I paid this much to play Split Rock / Pelham and just do not get me started on that place....just terrible. Terrible. Anyway, do yourself a favor and play Berkshire Valley. You will be glad you did and say hi to Mike for me. Great guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evanrubin Great course, great conditions
Played for the first time and will add this to my rotation. I believe that this is better that any of the Crystal Springs courses including Ballyoween.
