Upper Montclair Course Tour

The course was originally designed by A.W. Tillinghast, one of the most prolific architects in the history of golf.

In the 1950’s a major course renovation was directed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. which transformed Upper Montclair Country Club into the present 27-hole Championship design. Most recently in 2011 the Club completed a Master Plan golf course renovation project that included installing a new state of the art drainage and irrigation system, while reshaping and restoring all of the bunkers throughout the 27 hole facility.


Hole #1

 Par 4/5
 Men's Handicap: 1
 Ladies' Handicap: 2












The East Course starts off tough with the longest par 4 on the nine. A good drive to the left side of the fairway provides the best approach shot with a long to mid iron. A large bunker guards the left side of the green. Go right and you'll be chipping from a difficult position in the line of trees. The green slopes from back to front. This hole rightly deserves to be the #1 handicap on the East course.
