Basking Ridge Country Club

North Jersey



Nestled in Somerset Hills, Basking Ridge Country Club is only 45 minutes from New York City and 30 minutes from Newark Airport. Providing the perfect blend of suburban tranquility and metropolitan sophistication, the club opened as Pennbrook Golf Club in 1926. Steeped in history, the course was designed by Alexander Findlay on the grounds of William Bancker's Willmary Farm, a property which was originally U.S. Senator John Spooner's estate. You’ll say your vows on the lush green course, surrounded by the people you love most. After your special moment, guests will enjoy cocktails on the spacious clubhouse veranda to enjoy the stunning view. Later, dinner and dancing unfold in the clubhouse overlooking 258 private acres with panoramic views of the manicured fairways and beautiful Somerset Hills. Featuring colonial-style paneled dining rooms, raised hearth fireplaces, mirrored French doors and crystal chandeliers, your celebration will be remembered forever at Basking Ridge Country Club.
