When it was acquired in 2006 Valley Brook added a shot maker’s course to the County golf operation. Playing only 6,211 yards from the back tees it is not a course to over power. Short winding holes and small greens test the players’ ability to place the ball in just the right spot.
A large pond confronts golfers as they start their round on the 1st tee. The 160 yard carry is the first of many challenges. A winding creek and the Pascack Brook come into play on a number of holes. Many bunkers dot the fairways and greens. And a second pond is there to greet the golfers as they return to the clubhouse at #9 and #18.
Valley Brook leaves the golfer wondering how the score rarely matches the expectation.
