About Us

hole1

The focal point of the club is a beautiful, tree lined, 18 hole golf course. This course is a par 72 course between 6,200 and 6,300 yards in length. It has many interesting holes which offer a stiff challenge to the ability of its golfers. Among the more difficult holes are No. 6, a 193 yard par 3 over a water hazard, which has been selected as one of the most difficult holes in this area. Another tough hole, and one abounding in natural beauty is No. 11, a 534 yard, double dog-leg, par 5 that starts out with a tee shot over a water hazard and culminates with a difficult dog leg left around a cypress lake.

Challenges

The par 4, No. 13, described as “threading the needle,” starts with a very tight tee shot through a narrow opening with woods on both sides. No. 16, a long narrow par 4 with out-of-bounds on the right and No. 17, yet another par 4 with out-of-bounds and a green protected by a grove of trees has been referred to as Devil’s Elbow. Many a match has come to terms on these final holes.

Keen interest in golfing is stimulated further by several tournaments held throughout the year. Members compete in the annual Club Championship and President’s Cup in addition to many other events held specifically for members and their guests to allow one an all the opportunity to engage in friendly, competitive challenge.

USGA Modifies Equitable Stroke Control for 1999

Far Hills, N.J. – The Equitable Stroke Control procedure of the USGA Handicap System was modified by the USGA Executive Committee at its recent meeting, so that a player with a “…course handicap of nine or less can record a maximum score of double bogey on any hole…”.

The new E.S.C. procedure will be optional on a club-by-club basis in 1998, and it will become mandatory effective January 1, 1999, for all golf clubs issuing USGA Handicap Indexes. Currently, E.S.C. permits players with a course handicap of nine or less to post a maximum score of 6 on any hole.
The remainder of the E.S.C. procedure will remain unchanged.
Players with Course Handicaps from

  • 10-19 can record a maximum of 7 on any hole
  • 20-29 can record a maximum of 8 on any hole
  • 30-39 can record a maximum of 9 on any hole
  • 40 and above record a maximum of 10 on any hole

Equitable Stroke Control is the downward adjustment of unusually high individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make handicaps more representative of a player’s potential ability. For more information, contact the USGA Handicap Department at (908) 234-2300.
