My partner & I won the Essex County Junior (18&under) Doubles tennis tournament at the Maplewood Country Club in 1966. The only official USTA tournament I ever won.
That would be fantastic, thank you!
I used to pass the course everyday when I took the train to NY. The par 5 along the tracks will test anyone's nerve with OB right and big trees and bunkers on the left. It's really narrow.

Leading the member member last summer on the tee I put 3 OB right to take us out of it (back 9 was aggregate team score). Need to work on the nerves!
A Dr. Member of Maplewood invented the golf tee and they have a plaque in the grill room commemorating it. I got married in 2001 at Maplewood and all my golf buddies took pictures of themselves next to plaque and the wives thought everyone was nuts.
I wish I had more information for you on Maplewood, I have never come across information on the course. Do you have any record of when the current clubhouse was built? I noticed in one of the articles posted they had a plan for nine more holes and a clubhouse. I just wonder if they changed the location of the clubhouse after 1919. The layout appears to be the same from 1924 to 1937 to today. The sequencing of the holes are different, but the course looks like it can be looped in many different ways.Bret
