Montclair (Second & Fourth)

West Orange, New Jersey
West Orange, New Jersey
Rankings

Founded in 1893, Montclair Golf Club is one of the nation’s oldest clubs and is, in fact, considered to be the country's thirteenth eldest.

Tom Bendelow first established an 18-hole course for the founding members in 1899, roughly where the current First and Second nines are now situated.

In 1922, Donald Ross was commissioned to design a 27-hole layout (named First, Second and Third) with an additional nine (Fourth) constructed by Charles Banks six years later. The 1985 US Amateur (won by Californian Sam Randolph) was staged on the Second and Fourth nines.

The standout hole, or rather the standout green, appears at the par five 1st hole on the Banks nine, where the "Punchbowl" green complex is considered to be one of the finest examples of this template.

Robert Trent Jones was a member at Montclair for more than sixty years and his son Rees Jones learned the game here and is still a club member. Brian Schneider, senior design associate at Renaissance Design is currently engaged on a multi-phase renovation project. The final phase, Banks' Fourth nine, is scheduled to start in 2022.
