Roselle Golf Club is a Private, 9 hole golf course located in Roselle, New Jersey.
The Roselle Golf Club golf course first opened for play in 1917. The course was designed by Robert White and Seth Raynor.
The Roselle Golf Club was incorporated February 15, 1917, and by March 10th the first Board of Trustees and officers were elected. At this same meeting, the officers of the club were authorized to purchase the Chivers Farm and property for $28,000.
The greens committee secured the services of Robert White of the North Shore Country Club, Long Island by April 1917, to furnish a golf layout for $100 and to supervise all work for two years at $250 per year. Mr. White prepared the layout and said the work would begin within a week. By May of 1917 six greens had been completed including seeding. All plowing was finished. Work on cutting down trees had been started and the 7th and 8th greens would be seeded within a week. Additional input on the design of the course was provided by famed golf architect Seth Raynor, the Princeton alumnus who includes among his credits some of the most famous golf courses in the world, including The National Links on Long Island, Cypress Point, Yale Golf Course, and Chicago Golf Club.
By 1921 the fairways and greens were being compared favorably with other clubs in the area.
The 9-hole Roselle Golf Club golf course plays to a par-36 and a distance of 3,104 yards.
Blue tees: par-36, 3,104 yards, 35.2 / 121
Red tees: par-38, 2,706 yards, 33.5 / 113
The course closed in 2010.
Five years after a developer proposed plans to build apartments on a 59-acre golf course in Roselle, local leaders broke ground on a 932-unit complex.
Crews will begin building the facility, along with a 20-acre park, on the site of the former Roselle Golf Club in January 2015.
