2007 Minerals Youth & Adult Leaderboard Shootout

Basking Ridge Country Club is among the oldest golf courses in the area, opening in 1926 as the Pennbrook Golf Club.  The course was designed by Alexander Findlay and constructed on what was originally the estate of U.S. Senator John Spooner which later became Willmary Farm owned by William Bancker, the first owner of the club.

 

In an article of the in the July 23, 1925 edition of the Bernardsville News, Bancker was quoted as saying, “the links are intended to be used as a community course and open to those of modest means.”  When World War II arrived Pennbrook fell on hard times, in part due to gas rationing, and was closed and turned into a cow pasture and cornfield.  The club was reopened in 1953 and in spite of efforts to sustain it and the construction of a new club house, Pennbrook went into bankruptcy in 1982.

 

In 1986 the old Pennbrook GC was purchased at public auction by the Mahan family who changed the name to the Basking Ridge Country Club and invested millions of dollars to upgrade the facility and the golf course.  The result of their effort has produced a beautiful and challenging golf course, which was called by one visitor “a hidden jewel”.
