Three Unique & Beautiful Golf Courses
Fiddler's Elbow Country Club hosts three professionally designed championship golf courses. The architects are renowned, having won prestigious industry awards for creating and redesigning some of the country's most widely praised courses. Their expertise and ingenuity is on full display at Fiddler's Elbow where they've fused unique features of the local landscape with challenging holes that put members' skills to the test.
The Forest Course is the newest addition to Fiddler’s complex was designed by Rees Jones and opened in 1995. Fantastic panoramic views are a welcoming beginning to the round. Off the tee the player must keep the ball away from the smartly placed deep fairway bunkers. The greens are generous but are well guarded by more deep bunkering in the greens surrounds. The Forest Course offers a serene experience where you feel you might not be in the Garden State but somewhere in the foothills in the Carolinas.
The Meadow Course, also with most holes originally designed by Hal Purdy in 1965 and the new holes designed by Brian Silva in 1989; it is a Parkland style course with moderate to significant elevation changes throughout. Off the tee, the Meadow Course will challenge you to use a variety of clubs. Shots into the greens are demanding and ball striking and distance control are a must in order to score. The greens are challenging and demand deft speed control to ensure a maximum of 2 putts.
The River Course, with most holes originally designed by Hal Purdy in 1965 and the new holes designed by Brian Silva in 1989 was renovated in 2008; it is a Parkland style course with rolling terrain. The course is fairly forgiving off of the tee and the true test comes with the approach shots and on the greens which are challenging due to the contours where one must try to keep the ball below the hole to have the best opportunity to make putts.
