Founded in 1892, The Preakness Valley Golf Course is one of the first 100 golf clubs to be established in the United States, from Golf Magazine, January 1995. The golf course, situated in Preakness Valley Park next to the Historic Dey Mansion, is comprised of two eighteen hole courses, practice greens, and a driving range. The golf course is open from dawn to dusk. This is a year round facility and only closes on Christmas and New Year's Day.
The Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders have made it possible for the golf course to be a host facility for all matches and tournaments of the county's numerous high school golf teams. Team members are allowed to play in the months of July and August for only $1.00 per round of golf.
