The Montclair Golf Club was named the Distinguished Emerald Club of the World by the prestigious Board Room Magazine. Most importantly, she strives every day to instill a deep sense of belonging to each of our members.
Originally designed by two legendary golf course architects, Donald Ross and Charles Banks, the Montclair Golf Club golf courses are among the most distinctive in the country. Our four 9-hole layouts – each starting and ending at the clubhouse for fun and entertainment – challenge players of all skill levels to show their best game with every stroke.
Montclair’s challenging greens have helped improve the game of many of the region’s best players. In the words of Bobby Jones, Montclair is “the longest short course I’ve ever played”. It is also one of the few clubs that has hosted both the US men’s and women’s amateur championships.
In addition to Seton Hall and host Wagner, the field included eight other schools: Columbia, Fairfield, Fordham, Hofstra, Manhattan, Monmouth, Robert Morris and Saint Peter’s.
This concludes the autumn 2021 season for Seton Hall. The Pirates will be back in action when the spring season kicks off February 20-22 at the Loyola Intercollegiate in Goodyear, Arizona.
