Our Montclair Course was designed by two legendary golf course architects, Donald Ross and Charles “Steamshovel” Banks. Montclair Golf Club is considered one of the most unique courses in the nation. Our four 9-hole courses provide a challenging yet enjoyable experience for our members and their guests and each begins and ends at the Clubhouse.
Montclair Golf Club at Rock Spring is home to an 18-hole Par 71 golf course also designed by Banks, and Seth Raynor. The course has played host to the New Jersey State Open (1981, 1990, and 2000, 2009), the US Healthcare Classic, and many state PGA and USGA qualifying events.
The members of MGC take pride in the Club's position in the history of Golf in America and the many members who have contributed to the development of the game. Our Club was one of the founding members which formed the Metropolitan Golf Association in 1897. Three MGA presidents -- Isaac "Ike" Grainger, Ken Gordon and Jack Kelsey -- came from the ranks of the club. Grainger also served as President of the United States Golf Association, as did member Charles Littlefield, making Montclair one of a select group of clubs with two members having achieved that distinction.
Our Club’s challenging greens have helped to hone the competitive abilities of many of the area's top players. In the words of the great Bobby Jones, Montclair is "the longest short course I ever played." It is one of the few clubs anywhere that can claim to have hosted both the Men's and Women's U.S. Amateur Championships.
The members of Montclair Golf Club are proud to maintain a "no-tee-time" policy and accommodate players at any time without delay. Whether you want to play a full round or just come out and practice, our starters and caddie masters will ensure you have an excellent experience. Our caddie program is well known and our professional staff will exceed your expectations.
