How To Navigate And Beat River Vale Country Club

An older course in River Vale, New Jersey, the River Vale Country Club’s course was designed in the early 1930s by Orrin Edward Smith—a Donald Ross collaborator. With very affordable greens fees, the River Vale Country Club offers a par-72, 6,504-yard layout that was voted “Best Place to Play” by Golf Digest in 2008-2009. Most of the holes play very straight, and there is very little water on the course to challenge your swing—but watch out for those trees!
