Baltusrol has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

The Lower Course at Baltusrol may get all the national attention because it has hosted both the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship, but the Upper Course is a Tillinghast gem as well.

The Upper Course makes us of the mountain from which the club gets its name. The holes snake in and out of the forest and wind up both up and down the slope, created sidehill lies and awkward stances in almost every fairway. The mountain's influence is especially strong on the highly-contoured greens. According to members, there is no such thing as a straight putt on the course. The green complexes on the first six holes are especially tricky.

The 18th hole is a tricky par-4 that requires players to hit their tee shot through a tight shoot to a fairway that goes downhill. A number of deep, large bunkers guard the front of the green, and because players hit their second shot from a downhill lie, they often come into play.

In 1985, the U.S. Women's Open was hosted on the Upper Course and won by Kathy Baker.

This concept is one of the most rpnoitamt in the golf swing. Folding and retaining the connection of the left arm was responsible for bringing my scores down from 90 to 81.

Hola. Yes, they are very very private and very very esxiuclve. I've only played each once, invited by members. I did marshall for one classic, and that was an experience, watching all the celebrities go by! I go back to work next week and I will ask around. May I ask what website? They will want your credentials et al.

I loved playing both the upper and lower courses and the club house was great with all that tradition, but some of the membership needs to work on their people skills. Many derogatory comments to staff members in the dinning room and caddies on the course by the members. Too bad, it's a great course that not many outsiders get to play.
