Best town owned course in the area, clubhouse being renovated, course is in great condition for being a town owned/run course. Great value for residents.

Yes its expensive - $105 to play on a weekend in prime time, course was tough for me but I'm still really new. Very scenic, some great uphill / downhill holes. Most of the people that worked there were very nice but there was one crabby old ranger that kept telling us to hurry up but all the holes in front of us were backed up too so we had nowhere to go. Saw him go completely ballistic on a grandpa for driving the cart on a par 3 which is a no-no but he could have just been nice about it like i saw the other ranger doing.

UPDATE - just played this for a second time and the experience was much better, pace of play wasn't bad at all - we weren't backed up much at all and were never hassled by the rangers like last time.

Here's the current policy from River Vale of golf course management. Charge a regular green fee as if it were August, charge the same whether you walk or ride, then don't put on your web site that the front 9 is being aerated so you have to play the back 9 twice. And don't give them a choice if they just want to play 9 holes. Then have a snippy attitude about it in the pro shop. However, the ranger and the starter seemed like nice guys which surprised me. Not a bad course in itself but sneaky management.

Probably my favorite course in Bergen County. Well maintained. Changes in elevation. Afternoons are good and not crowded with good twilight fees. Could upgrade facilities and service a bit.

played on a monday $75 with cart . great day great course will make u think & use every club in bag, markers on course, maintenance was good, up to players to keep course good they give you everything you need to help, pace of play was good seems like the ranger was out. all & all f cking great day

Played yesterday on one of the first good weather Saturdays of the year. Love the course and it is in fairly good shape. Not real long but it puts you to the test with varying terain and some tough greens. Outside staff are very helpful. In my experience over the last two years, the Pro Shop staff have always been a bit curt at the very best. I think this year they may need more help as the same person is running the pro shop, out on the course as the ranger, and then by the afternoon, he was the bartender. He seemed a bit overwhelmed as by the end of the day he was outright rude. This was a slight damper on an otherwise fun day on a challenging old school course. They do have great burgers at the turn but the cutomer service needs to improve.

course makes you use all the clubs in your bag and when I played (3 times) it was in incredibly good shape
