The classic design of Newton Country Club's golf course is not only a challenge to the avid golfer, but also a spectacular scenic and visual delight.
Our golf course plays as a par 70 - don't let the yardage fool you though! Our narrow, tree lined fairways and fast, undulating greens are a test for even the scratch golfer. Every club in your bag will be tested.
Newton Country Club became one of the first courses in the state of New Jersey to be recognized and certified as an Audobon Wildlife Sanctuary. Only 19 golf courses in New Jersey are certified!
Newton Country Club has North Jersey's best practice facilities. A huge, natural grass driving range with a practice bunker. A large practice putting green by the pro shop and first tee. And a short game practice area featuring another large green, chipping area and bunkers. Add this to our PGA professional staff and you'll be shaving strokes off of your game in no time!
A drive between the fairway bunkers on the right side and a large tree on the left side will leave a mid to short iron approach to a 3-tiered green.
The approach shot plays about a club short to a large green that runs away from you. Large bunkers guard the front of the largest green on the golf course.
This easy-looking hole plays uphill and often into the wind. Don't get above the hole on this green that runs left-to-right!
You'll think you're in Ireland with this blind uphill shot to a green that is well-guarded and runs down to the left. Aim to the right side of the green if you dare!
The last of the "easy" Par 4's to start your round, make sure you hit the fairway so that you have a short iron to a green that runs away from you.
The longest par-3 on the course is also an uphill tee shot. The green rises up ahead of you...try not to be above the hole, because 3-putts here are too common.
Our newest hole requires a drive to the left of the pond, and missing the fairway bunkers, to a narrow fairway to leaving a mid-iron approach to a 2 tiered green.
Hardest par-4 in North Jersey? 1 Hdcp. Swing away with the driver here to leave a mid to long iron blind approach to one of the largest greens on the course.
The longest hitters can try to reach this green in two, but a sensible shot is to lay up short of the creek to set up a uphill wedge approach to the 2-tiered green.
A blind tee shot up the hill to this dogleg left must get beyond the big tree guarding the dogleg to set up a clear approach.
A long tee shot to the left of the bunker on the right will set up the best angle for either a lay up or a shot over the dogleg to the green.
This par-4 requires a precise tee shot to get a view of the green from the fairway. This green is one of the trickiest on the course, guarded by two huge bunkers. #2 handicap.
This redan hole requires an accurate shot to hit the correct level of the green. Short or long or right or left is trouble!
This tight par 4 only requires a 3 wood or hybrid off the tee, out of a chute, to set up a short approach to this severely back to front sloped green. Birdie time!?
One of the widest fairways on the course, favor the left side. Straight hole. The green is also open allowing for a run-up approach shot. Beware of the "spine" in the center of the green!
Dog leg right to a very elevated green. You can attempt to cut off as much off as you like, but a smart shot is about 220 yards setting up an iron approach to a very difficult green.
Our toughest par 3 is guarded with bunkers on the left, right and front. The severely sloped green has yielded many a 3-putt.
Maybe the prettiest par 4 in New Jersey. Hit your drive down the hill short of or left of the lake. Then hit your approach to the proper level of this 2-tiered green
