Detailed description of Hollywood Golf Club

Hollywood Golf Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Deal, New Jersey.

On October 15, 1898, the Hollywood Golf Club as a New Jersey stock corporation was founded.

After strating out with a nine hole course and later a 5,400 yard 18-hole course, The 3rd and final home of the Hollywood Golf Club was aquired in the 1910's. Isaac Mackie, who became a charter member of the PGA of America and later worked at Canoe Brook Country Club, was hired to lay out the eighteen hole Hollywood Golf Course, on May 3, 1912 on leased land. The course opened for play in 1913. On January 21, 1914, the Club acquired title to its third and present home. Presently, the Club occupies approximately 175 acres.

The membership was not satisfied that it had one of the best courses in the country. Walter J. Travis, an Australian, a three-time winner of the United States Amateur (1900, 1901, 1903) the 1904 British Amateur Champion and famous golf writer, publisher and editor, was hired to design a truly outstanding course. Travis totally reworked the layout, put in the existing greens, bunkering and hazards with an eye to challenge the good player without discouraging the medium player.

Today the course plays to features 7,032 yards from the back tees. Par for Hollywood Golf Course is 71. The course rating is 74.1 and the slope rating is 142.

The Travis designed course (completed probably in about 1915) quickly established its reputation as one of the best in the nation.

In 1956, the course was remodeled by L.S. "Dick" Wilson. Many bunkers close to the teeing areas and obsolete cross bunkers were removed.

During the 1980's, additional refinements were made under the direction of Geoffrey S. Cornish, to update the course, correct the ravages of time and enhance the original shot values of the holes. The course has been consistently selected by Golf Digest as one of the top ten courses in New Jersey, a tribute to its various architects, its current staff and, of course, the membership.

In 1998 famed architect Rees Jones finished a complete restoration of the course in the original Walter Travis design. The course has been consistently selected by Golf Digest as one of the top ten courses in New Jersey, a tribute to its various architects, its current staff and, of course, the membership.
