The Ridgewood Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1890

The Ridgewood Country Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with the best in New Jersey. This very attractive 27-hole parkland layout comprises the East, Center and West nines, which radiate out from the club's award-winning clubhouse. This private course is generally playable only by members and their guests.

Tillinghast's superbly presented design, provides a wonderful test for your all-round game. Copious stylish bunkering, especially around the greens, characterises many of the attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes ... thankfully, water does not.

Ridgewood was started in 1890 by golfers from the nearby borough of Ho-Ho-Kus. They formally established the Ho-Ho-Kus Golf Club in 1893. When the Club moved to Ridgewood and a new home in Maple Avenue, it was renamed Ridgewood Golf Club, and in 1910 renamed again as The Ridgewood Country Club. Skirting the greens of the long par-5 13th and par-4 16th holes, and tee-boxes of the par-4 14th and par-5 17th holes, is St Andrews Brook, beyond which lies the public-access Paramus Golf Course.
