2007 Minerals Youth & Adult Leaderboard Shootout

 

Wallkill Golf Club celebrated its 100th Anniversary this year, 2010.  The golf course was constructed 100 years ago by the New Jersey Zinc Company, originally as a six hole course for the exclusive use of the company officials and their guests.  Five years later the Club was incorporated by a group of club members in June of 1919.  In 1923 the course was renamed the Wallkill Country Club.

 

In the 1920s the course was expanded to 9 holes featuring uphill and downhill lies beautifully integrated into the hillside below the club house, which was originally constructed in 1919.  The course is no pushover, but fun for all levels of golfers playing at par 70 with a 67.9 course rating and a slope of 121.

The course includes two par 5s playing over 500 yards each with a number of elevated tees requiring well placed tee shots and a second shot to guarded greens with danger on all sides. 

The course has been a fun and challenging golf experience for the likes of the famed baseball legend Babe Ruth who played the course with the aid of a young caddie by the name of Bob Gunderman.  Bob Gunderman remains a member of the Wallkill Golf Club today and was the Clubís Senior Menís Champion in 2003.  This beautiful golf course and its rich history make it a logical choice for being included in the book, ďThe Search for the 50 Most Beautiful Golf Holes in New Jersey."
