Detailed description

Great Gorge Golf Club is a Public, 27 hole golf facility located in Mcafee, New Jersey.

Great Gorge Country Club first opened for play in 1970. The 27-hole complex was designed by George Fazio.%u200B

The Great Gorge golf facility has three 9-hole golf courses, The Lake, The Quarry, and The Rail. These 9-hole golf courses can be paired to form 3 different 18-hole golf course challenges (Lake/Quarry, Lake/Rail, Quarry/Rail).

The Quarryside Course - From the back tees, this is the most demanding nine. This course plays through spectacular rock outcroppings and diverse water hazards.

The Lakeside Course - Designed to be a fair challenge for all levels of play, this nine is set amid sparkling lakes and mature trees, featuring dramatic elevation changes.

The Railside Course - The most scenic nine is also the most forgiving, as strategically protected greensites are sculpted into the dramatic terrain. The par-3 third hole on the Railside Course features artifacts from the railroad era, in a formation reminiscent of Stonehenge.

The course closed in 2015, but was reopened again in May 2017. 

After being closed in 2015 and 2016, 50 percent of the putting surfaces at Great Gorge at Mountain Creek had died, weeds grew around the bunkers and the course was strewn with brush and vastly overgrown.

A little more than one year since Mountain Creek Resort purchased the golf course, much of the charm of the George Fazio design that was built in 1970 to accompany the Great Gorge Playboy Club has been restored.
