Detailed description

Metedeconk National Golf Club is a Private, 27 hole golf facility located in Jackson, New Jersey. Metedeconk National Golf Club has three 9-hole golf courses. These courses can be combined in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges. The nine-hole courses are The Front Course, The Back Course, and The Third Course.%u200B

Metedeconk National Golf Club opened for play in 1988. The private, 27-hole facility was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Roger Rulewich.

Inspired by the varied topography of the preserve, Jones and his chief designer and top aide, Roger Rulewich, created a 27-hole masterpiece of tree-lined fairways, well-placed bunkers to maximize accuracy and the subtly contoured greens for which Jones is known. And, typical of all Jones' creations, the development of water as a playing hazard is a strategic consideration on seven holes at Metedeconk National. Extensive and multiple tee boxes - another Jones trademark - allow for unlimited flexibility and permit the course to be played at yardages ranging from approximately 5,200 to 7,200. From the championship tees, the course has a rating of 75.4 and a slope index of 146 with a par of 72.

Masterfully routed, the three nines embrace the site's natural wilderness. Almost every hole is an entity unto itself. The proximity of marsh and lowland pine forest throughout provides a delightful dividend to golfers who may be fortunate enough to be joined on their round by the occasional deer, fox, muskrat or circling hawk who continue to make Metedeconk their home.

The three nines are played in three eighteen hole combinations. The nine holes on the Third Course are very similar in design and layout to the original Front and Back Nines, except that the greens are a little larger than those on the original eighteen holes. They also have a little more undulation. The fairways are narrow, putting an emphasis on accuracy off the tee. The signature hole is #7, requires a tee shot up a dogleg right fairway.
