History

Metuchen Golf and Country Club was built in 1915. The club was originally 9 holes designed by the golf professional and greens keeper Charles Lang. The full 18 holes were completed in 1931 and have undergone a few changes since but the course proves itself time and time again against top level competition. At 6676 yards from the Championship Tees, the course is by no means a monster. However, our small, well guarded greens and tree lined, narrow fairways and stingy rough provide plenty of challenges for players of all skill levels. The front 9 is long with two par fours well over 400 yards and one par 3at 178 yards that plays longer because it is uphill. At almost 3500 yards, you often hit most of your clubs on the front 9 alone. The back nine winds around the outside edge of our property with out of bounds basically all along the right side of every hole. With two par 4 holes reachable by the long hitters, you may post some good scores on this side but you must be accurate or trees, out of bounds and well-placed bunkers will make approaches to the undulating, slick greens more than difficult. Our signature hole, #14has our famous Metuchen tree in the center of the fairway at about 160 yards. With a wide landing area, you must decide which side of the tree to play your tee shot to and then you must negotiate our green side pond before attempting to putt on a very difficult green to read. It is a hole to remember. The course is in outstanding shape always due to the fine work of our superintendent, Brett Price, and his crew. Brett as been at the club for 35 years and our course conditions are often considered some of the best in the state. So please do not be overconfident when you see the yardage. Often when you have finished playing, you realize what a gem Metuchen Golf and Country Club is.
