Rock Spring Golf Club

Property Description:

Rock Spring Golf Club was founded in 1925.  The Founders hired Seth Raynor, the famed golf course architect of Fishers Island, NY., Chicago Golf Club and Yale Golf Course, just to name a few.  The Rock Spring clubhouse overlooks a 5 acre spring fed Cable Lake which adjoins the first and second holes.  The view to the east presents a panorama of the Manhattan skyline.  The course has played host to the New Jersey State Open and the US Healthcare Classic along with several State PGA and USGA qualifying events.


Rock Spring Golf Club is the only public golf course in the US designed by Seth Raynor.  The 6600-yard par 72 course is built on a rolling, tree-lined site with traditional design features seen on Seth Raynor layouts.  Located only 15 miles from Manhattan, the club benefits from strong demand and limited public course supply.  The play is made up of Annual Passes, Resident and non-resident daily fee golf.
