2007 Minerals Youth & Adult Leaderboard Shootout

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Rockaway River Country Club is beautifully carved into the Rockaway River Valley in Denville and dates back to 1915 when a group of local sportsman recognized that the beauty of the land, as it boarders the Rockaway River, was an ideal site for a golf course.  The original nine hole course was later expanded into a par 72 18 hole family oriented golf country club, with the front nine boarding the east bank of the river that bears its name, culminating with a gradual change in elevation to the half-way point on the course offering golfers a magnificent view down the Rockaway River Valley before moving on to the 10th hole. 


The back nine is carved into the natural topography of the west bank of the Rockaway River, a bit shorter than the front name but demanding a greater degree of accuracy from the golfer.  The final hole is a challenging par 5 requiring the golfer to hit an accurate tee shot and then a second across a stream to be positioned for the approach shot that offers a picturesque view of the clubhouse in the background.


The recipient of the of the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association 58th “Club of the Year” Award, the RRCC has been the venue for some of New Jersey’s most important tournaments including the Dodge Open, the New Jersey Open, the New Jersey Seniors just to name a few.
