Explore the Upper Montclair Courses

Upper Montclair presents 27 holes of Championship golf designed by 2 of the most prolific architects in the history of golf.

Originally designed by A.W. Tillinghast, Upper Montclair underwent major course renovations in the 1950’s directed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. These renovations transformed the Club into the present 27-hole Championship design.

In 2011 Upper Montclair 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.

Course Tour


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.
