Knickerbocker Country Club
Knickerbocker was established in 1914, the original brainchild of Donald Ross, one of the best-respected golf course architects in the history of the game, and received subsequent input from Herbert Strong. Our course was lovingly restored in 2007-08 to a plan laid out by Ron Forse, a modern traditionalist who works in complete harmony with what exists to ensure relevance to today’s golfer. The re-rating and updating of slope by the USGA is testament to the success of the restoration. Golfers, club members and visitors alike, have remarked that this project has been nothing but beneficial to the Knickerbocker Country Club golf experience and that it has without doubt been taken to a new level. Even our superintendent of many years said that it was almost like moving to a new course and he had to learn over many aspects of the course.
Knickerbocker Country Club has been ranked in the top 200 Classic Golf Courses (courses opened prior to 1960) coming in at #144 in 2014 GOLFWEEK’s Best Classic Courses ranking.

The GSWGA is a non-profit organization that was founded on November 10, 1953 in order to provide statewide competition for New Jersey’s best women amateurs. The tremendous amount of interest in women’s golf in the metropolitan area spurred the creation of the GSWGA by eleven Founding Members representing Founding Clubs. Over the years we have enjoyed a steady expansion to our present relationship with nearly fifty New Jersey clubs.
The GSWGA is also an important competitive bridge between golf on the local and national levels – a proving ground for New Jersey’s most talented women.
Beyond competition, our members volunteer a significant amount of their time to such organizations as the USGA, NJSGA, WMGA and the Women’s Trenton District GA. In addition, many of our members have been honored by these and other organizations for their extraordinary service the the game of golf.
