About Spring Lake Golf Club
SPRING LAKE GOLF CLUB AND COMMUNITY
Historic Spring Lake, New Jersey, has a small-village graciousness and relaxed atmosphere. Nestled within this family-friendly “Jewel of the Jersey Shore,” Spring Lake’s shopping district includes fashionable boutiques, unique galleries, casual outdoor eateries, and fine dining experiences. Downtown is a short tree-linked walk from the soothing ocean waves and non-commercial boardwalk, charming B&B’s and hotels, and an enchanting park surround a spring-fed lake. Cultural events, including the many fine performances at the historic Community Theater as well as downtown festivals and events, enhance the Spring Lake experience.
Spring Lake Golf Club has a rich and storied history dating back to the 19th century. On August 20th, 1898, the Spring Lake Golf and Country Club was officially incorporated in Monmouth County, formed by a group of wealthy eastern industrialists and influential local businessmen. The original nine-hole course played to 2,130 yards with a par 35 and was in use from 1898 to 1911.
A new clubhouse was completed in 1916, and a year later Albert Warren Tillinghast was selected to create and execute a new plan for the golf cou...rse. A.W. Tillinghast designed over sixty golf courses in his time, including some of the treasures of American Golf. His course designs are considered among the best in the world, and he is widely recognized as one of the prime figures of the golden age of golf architecture in America. Changes have been made to several greens and sand bunkers throughout the years, but there have been no other major architectural changes since the time that Tillinghast completed his work at Spring Lake. Currently Spring Lake is in the process of a major renovation that includes multiple upgrades and renovations to its dining facilities that will include multiple bars, additional seating, outside dining and an outdoor grill area. This is a very special time for Spring Lake as it focuses on the needs of the growing membership.
