A Golfer’s Dream in the heart of New Jersey’s Countryside | Morris Bernards Moms

“Private club with hometown feel.” – Joe Hays Sr., Founding Partner



There is something about the crisp fall air on the golf course that makes me fall in love with New Jersey all over again. Being a part of a private community is something extra special. Nestled in the rolling hills of Morris County, Black Oak Golf Club provides members with a unique experience unlike anything else.

30 years ago, and after being put on a waiting list at Mendham Golf & Tennis Club, longtime Chester resident, Joe Hays Sr. decided he would develop his own club and started purchasing land. It took several years and course revisions to complete, but in 2011, Black Oak was born. Shortly after, the clubhouse was erected, and the lifestyle that is Black Oak Golf Club began.

Black Oak is a private club and includes a one of a kind, 350+ acre 18-hole course, designed by David Glenz. With its picturesque views, the course flows with dramatic elevation changes, and unmatched ambiance. Players will wind their way through the hillside, experiencing unexpected challenges and lots of enjoyment throughout the course.

The David Glenz Golf Academy is on site, making it easy to freshen up your swing, learn the game from scratch or even host a corporate golf event in the comfort of your own club.

The clubhouse is casual, but elegant, and includes a fully equipped pro shop, updated locker rooms, a game room, bar and family friendly restaurant. The outside patio overlooks the 18th green and allows you to relax and enjoy a cocktail at the outdoor bar, while cozying up to the fireplace. For the first time, the clubhouse restaurant will remain open throughout the winter, allowing members to enjoy their club in the off season. The social calendar is full of events including their popular 3 Day Member Guest, Nine & Dine, Fall Fest, and Family Fun Day.

They offer unique membership packages, including weekday, social, dining, and even corporate making Black Oak welcoming, and a place to call home to many, no matter what stage in life you may be at.
