This club offers three nine hole courses that are played in three eighteen hole combinations. The West/East Course is the most challenging combination. In 1995, it was rated by "GOLF Magazine" as 97th among the "Top 100 courses in the U.S.," and "Golf Digest" rated it as the 97th best out of "America's 100 Greatest Courses" for 1995-96. They also rated it as the 5th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 6th best for 1997-98. "GOLFWEEK" ranked it 66th among "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1997, 48th for 1998 and 67th for 1999. The West/East Course has narrow, tree-lined fairways bordered by a deep cut of rough. The East/Center Course is the least difficult because it is shorter and has fewer water hazards. The Center/West Course can be difficult, and its signature hole is #6, on the Center Course, a par 4, measuring 289 yards. This hole plays to an extremely small green. They have named this hole "The Five And Dime," because you can make a score anywhere between a five and a ten. All three courses have undulating greens that are fast and medium-sized. There are many elevation changes, and ponds come into play throughout all three courses. This club was originally founded in 1890 and has been listed by the USGA as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S. In addition, it was recognized by "GOLF Magazine" in their 1995 list of "The First 100 Clubs in America." These courses were renovated by Rees Jones in 1988.

Terrible Service, Jun 08, 2004
from Bergen County, NJ
|Rarely if ever in the 1000+ rounds of golf I've played over the past 20 years have I experienced such poor service. I'm a pretty laid back guy, but the club pro, david reisner, had to be the nastiest person I've ever come in contact with on a golf course. Unfortunately, his arrogance made for a very stressful start to my foursome's day, which is the last thing someone should have when they are on the golf course. While the conditions were certainly average (I'd rate them a "C"), I would rate the service here an "F" and not recommend the course until they working on getting a more personable staff.|
