About the Club
 
Greenacres is embarking on an exciting new chapter in its history. We are redefining what the country club experience means for today’s busy lifestyles and we are beginning a multi-million-dollar redevelopment project to improve our golf course, modernize our clubhouse and add even more family-friendly features.
 



 
For more than 75 years, Greenacres has been a Princeton-area oasis for families and friends, offering the very best experience a country club can: top-notch amenities, sumptuous dining, a long-tenured staff dedicated to providing extraordinary service and, most important of all, the opportunity to forge life-long friendships with a caring, diverse group of people in a welcoming and warm environment.
 
But tradition is not enough. Country clubs must change to meet the needs of today's busy families and professionals and Greenacres is leading the way. Our focus is on providing a casual atmosphere for sports, dining and fitness that is family friendly.
 
Whether a member wants to spend an entire weekend at the club or just stop by for a quick golf lesson, workout or meal there are many options available. Once you know what Greenacres has to offer, we think you will want to join our family. 





Our History
Our plans for the future are bold and innovative.Greenacres has retained renowned golf course architect Bobby Weed to redesign its course to make it one of the most attractive and challenging courses in the area. Bobby Weed’s career in golf course design is nearly unparalleled. He began with  an apprenticeship under famed architect Pete Dye and  from there he was hired by the PGA Tour, becoming its in-house architect in 1987. Since then, Weed has been responsible for the design of some of the country’s best courses, including those that continue as host sites for well-known PGA Tour events. He’s enjoyed collaboration with some of golf’s biggest names, including Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer and Chi Chi Rodriquez.
 
Our golf course already has quite a history of exceptional golf course design. The creator of the course, Devereux Emmet, designed more than 150 courses across the globe and counts among his masterpieces Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, MD., and Bethpage  Green in Old Bethpage, NY. Another famed architect, George Fazio, redesigned the tree-lined gem in 1971, helping to creating pristine putting surfaces that consistently roll smooth and fast. George Fazio‘s nephew, Tom Fazio, was also instrumental in the 1971 redesign of the course. This well-known architect has designed more than 120 courses around the world. Ironically, it was George and Tom Fazio who remodeled Congressional not long after they did their impressive work on Greenacres.

The golf course improvements are being done in conjunction with a major redevelopment of virtually all of Greenacres’ facilities including upgrading our clubhouse, expanding our fitness center, enhancing our aquatic facilities to include a pool slide and splash ground, and adding a new children’s activity center.

This multi-million dollar project is being done alongside the development of high-end luxury townhouses on property sold by the club to a national home builder. This transaction will result in approximately 100 new members for the club and will provide Greenacres with the financial resources to fund the planned improvements to the golf course and club facilities as well as to establish a strong financial future for Greenacres.
