Manasquan River Golf Club
In 1922, Manasquan River Golf Club purchased 150 acres of farmland and rolling hills that included 1800 feet of waterfront property along the Manasquan River. The property, part of the Old Squan Highlands, includes the highest point on the Atlantic Seaboard from Atlantic Highlands to Florida.
Golf course architect Robert White was commissioned to build nine holes in the pastures and swampy meadowlands along the river, which opened for play in 1923. Then in 1926, the second nine holes opened for play in the elevated woodlands and laurel-laden ravines overlooking the river. Manasquan River Golf Club remains a course with flavor unlike any other at the Jersey Shore, presenting two distinct faces.
The second hole is ranked among the strongest par fours in the state. The hole rises through the drive zone, then angles slightly left and falls to a divided fairway separated from the elevated green by a swath of rough.
The featured hole is seven, a nearly 600-yard par five. A drive of 180 yards is necessary to cross a vegetation-filled ravine. To reach the beginning of the rising fairway drive of 280 yards is required. The fairway takes a steep plunge 150 yards from the green.

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.
