Plainfield Country Club

Plainfield Country Club is a family oriented club providing premier golf, racquets, swimming and entertainment facilities. The club is most notably famous for its world-renowned Donald Ross golf course that recently was restored by leading golf architect Gil Hanse. PCC has one of the largest racquets programs in New Jersey, offering extensive tennis, paddle and squash programs. Our pool, which was completely renovated in 2011, provides a state of the art aquatic facility for the entire family. Our turn of the century clubhouse offers indoor and outdoor fine dining on the highest point in Somerset County; overlooking New York City and the Watchung Mountains. Since its founding in 1890, PCC has always had a tradition of giving back to the game of golf and its local community. The club was the host site for the top 125 PGA TOUR professionals at the Barclays in August of 2011 (won by Dustin Johnson), and again in 2015 (won by Jason Day). The Club will host the first round of the PGA TOUR playoffs in 2020 for the Fed Ex Cup. This event generates millions of dollars for local charities in the surrounding communities. Our members are proud of being the first private country club to start a First Tee Program. We proudly donate each year to our First Tee Program, these contributions furnish funding for college scholarships for needy children in central New Jersey.
