Berkshire Valley Golf Course
A great day of golf
The staff was friendly and helpful at this Morris County, NJ course. It is nicely maintained by the Billy Casper group. Golf carts required. This is a negative to me so I won't be playing here often. The layout of the course is such that holes have their own individual traits. Much of the course is up against a mountain. Greens rolled true but many were multi-tiered and large. Never played here before so had no local knowledge which would have helped a great deal, especially on approach shots. Will play here again as I am a resident member. There are three other courses in the system where walking is allowed.

This is a beautiful, scenic course and well maintained. However, the pace of play was so tedious we couldn't take it. We surrendered after 12 holes. I wont overtly state the cause of the slow play, but those who are somewhat astute will discern it from the review. Slow play is a plague that is killing golf. It sucks the fun right out of it. I will avoid any facility that permits slow play and as such, will avoid this course. Unfortunate, because it is a fabulous facility.

Rave review. Will return
Superb track. Loved the layout. Recently moved up to the area from Union County and BV makes those county courses look like goat tracks. Greens were still recovering from the aeration, but not the end of the world as I could roll putts on them. Haven't had many opportunities to play this year and today's round showed that, but I'll definitely return to play the course again before the end of the season.

Good Feature all 18 hole.
I was Thursday afternoon must be the perfect time to golf here. We teed off at 1:50pm, had another couple on first tee, Conditions were ideal & course was impeccable. I recommend highly.

Need to know if greens are aerated ahead of time.
I haven’t played this course in 6 years. When I arrived most of the staff was very nice (though one of them scolded us about taking the cart to our car even though there wasn’t a sign). The course was in decent condition. I wish that golf now would have told us the greens were aerated. If I knew that I would have golfed elsewhere.

10$ off for aeration = Not worth the price!
This was my first time at this course in 3 years. The course was in great shape except for the greens. When I went to check in, I was told the greens were aerated 2 days ago, and they were only taking a whopping $10 off green fees which I thought was a little ridiculous. I didn't feel like $10 was enough of a discount. I was pretty much putting on the beach.

Great view, tight course
The couse has a beautiful setting. Because of the distance between green and tee along with the elevations you will need to take a cart.
The greens were sanded so putting and reading the greens were challenging.
The first 4 holes are along a ridge and require accurate shot making off the tee. Some other holes will require lay up shots to take a proper shot to the green. The pace of play was wonderful, completed the round in about 4 hours.

It was my first play and impressed toomuch. It is very challanging and eager to play and I will try to play as many as I can
