2007 Minerals Youth & Adult Leaderboard Shootout


In 1961 the 275 acres and 20 acre pond which now is the site of the Farmstead Golf Club in Andover, New Jersey, was purchased from a dairy farmer by Byron Phoebus who then designed and built his own golf course to ensure that he always had a place to play golf. 


In June 1963 the first nine holes called “Clubview” opened followed in 1965 with an additional nine more holes called “Lakeview”.  The final nine holes were added in 1979 called “Valleyview”, the shortest but most challenging of the three nines.  In 2008 Farmstead celebrated its 45th Anniversary.  Phoebus, now 87 years old still plays his favorite golf course and recently got a hole-in-one and shot his age (87), both feats rarely achieved by even the best golfers.

The golf course is laid out over 275 acres of rolling farm land lined by trees and featuring scenic ponds and streams.  Over the years Farmstead Golf Club has gained the reputation for being one of the finest golf facilities in the Metropolitan area has been recognized by the New Jersey Herald as the Reader’s Choice "Best Golf Course" in Sussex County four years in a row, and honored by GolfStyles Magazine as one of the “100 Must Play Courses in New Jersey”.  This may explain why Farmstead was selected for inclusion in the book “The Search for the 50 Most Beautiful Golf Holes in New Jersey.”
