The Club propert includes 258 acres overlooking the Somerset Hills.
Some of the amenities at the Basking Ridge Country Club are their 25 acre pool, Bamboo Grille, kiddie pool, playground, snack bar, and volleyball net.

BASKING RIDGE, NJ - Ever since 1926, the Basking Ridge Country Club has served as a centerpiece for private parties, poolside fun, and of course, enjoyable golf outings, all overlooking the property’s 258 acres and the stunning Somerset Hills.

Kara Bosi, Director of Membership and Marketing, said that it is the “course conditions, friendly members, and lively fun,” that makes this country club stand out from others.

One way the Club gets the whole family involved in golfing is by offering clinics and camps at The Golf Academy. Children as young as two can attend the golf clinics that are taught by professionals and open to the public. There are also full-day and half-day summer camps for children ages six to 17 years old. Ladies’ clinics are also offered. Members can even receive private lessons from the PGA professional staff.

The Bamboo Grille, overlooking the Club's 18th hole, is the Club’s island-themed restaurant that is open to the public and is open from Tuesday through Sunday, also offering live entertainment alongside its outdoor seating and bar area. All Club members have charging privileges and there is no food minimum.

Fair Winds Fine Catering is available at the Club and open to the public.  It offers an ideal facility for weddings, corporate meetings, and private parties. The catering facility has recently been redecorated and features “colonial-style paneled dining rooms, raised hearth fireplaces, mirrored French doors and crystal chandeliers,” according to the Basking Ridge Country Club website.

Recently, holes 14, 17, and 18 have been renovated. Also, drainage conditions on the course have been improved.
