The Mattawang Golf Club of today is very true to its original layout. The course opened in 1960 and was designed by Mike Myles. As was typical of course design for private clubs in the 1950's and early 60's, the idea was to create a challenging venue, in a natural setting, with a premium placed on shot-making skills.
The course plays to 6,805 yards from the back tees, so it has plenty of length. Although often appearing wide and open, the fairways are actually quite tight and golfers quickly discover that the trees which line many of the fairways have been thoughtfully placed to penalize errant shots.
Typical of the design philosophy of the era, most of the greens are small and protected by sand traps. They have rightfully gained a reputation over the past few years as being among the best maintained putting surfaces in the state. Golfers must hit both their tee and approach shots accurately or pay the price.
The record for the lowest round at Mattawang was a 66 posted by the legendary "Golden Bear," Jack Nicklaus.

A nice course for the average golfer. Good mix of easy to challenging holes. Par 3s are long and most greens small.

- staff was not friendly, not even a good morning greeting - driving range is a joke - the grounds crew was working on the course our entire round. No courtesy of truning off machines or waiting until we teed off. Constantly mowing and trimming around us while we played. - no water was available on the course the entire round

Cold and breezy Saturday morning. Not crowded, so pace of play was good. Greens in exceptional shape. Traps nicely groomed but would like to see a better quality sand. Very nice course.
