Innovative design and a reverence for nature are the hallmarks of truly great golf courses, and TPC Jasna Polana’s championship layout is no exception.
Considered among the top private golf courses in the New Jersey, TPC Jasna Polana’s par-72, 7,098-yard championship layout was crafted by the legendary Gary Player. The golf course blends harmoniously with its surroundings amidst the rolling hills of Princeton. Corridors of mature hardwood trees frame manicured fairways. Numerous lakes, creeks and ponds add to the golf course’s strategic diversity as well as its spectacular beauty.
The golf course finishes with a spectacular risk/reward finishing hole, a 515-yard, par-5 18th hole, which favors long hitters.
Per Gary Player’s philosophy as an architect, the golf course should be enjoyable for the average golfer and be versatile enough to set up for a PGA TOUR event and challenge the professionals. TPC Jasna Polana features five sets of tees on each hole. While the golf course measures near 7,100 from the tips, the members can play from a either 6,500 or 6,000 yards.
As part of the TPC Network, you can be sure that playing conditions at TPC Jasna Polana are maintained to PGA TOUR standards year-round. Complementing the golf course is a 3.5-acre quality practice facility which features a 60,000 square-foot practice tee, four putting greens and practice bunkers.
TPC Jasna Polana played host to the Champions Tour’s Instinet Classic for 3 years from 2000-2002 and also hosted a Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf match in 1999, where Tom Watson defeated Hale Irwin.
