MAYS LANDING, N.J. -- Mays Landing Golf & Country Club opened in 1962 with an exhibition match between Sam Snead and Tony Lema.
Leo Fraser, former president of the PGA of America, designed the course. While the layout offers a fair amount of challenges, Fraser wanted the course to appeal to players of all skill levels. The course is both picturesque and playable, making it the perfect destination for a casual round.
The course has more forgiving tees, gold and red, that are excellent for those just learning the game, and the blue and white tees present more formidable challenges for more advanced golfers. Water comes into play on several holes. Be prepared for a few forced carries as well.
The toughest hole on the course is the par-4 sixth hole. A long straight tee shot is needed in order to avoid the waste area on the right. Then there is a small green with a bunker to the left and water to the right. To make the hole even more difficult, it usually plays into the prevailing winds.
In addition to top-notch conditioning and impeccable service, Mays Landing Golf & Country Club offers affordable green fees in keeping with Fraser's commitment to making the game accessible to all.
