The Family Pool and Cabana at Panther Valley Golf and Country Club

From 4,000 Acre Cattle Farm to 18 Hole Golf Course and Country Club.

Panther Valley Golf & Country Club was originally a part of the estate of Clendenin James Ryan Jr., grandson of Thomas “Fortune” Ryan, a New York City financier who was recorded as the last of the robber barons of Wall Street. The estate was known as Panther Ledge Farm (the name is still visible on the stone pillars forming the gateway of the property as you approach the Pro Shop). Panther Ledge Farm was a 4,000 acre cattle farm where black angus cows were bred and raised. The top four holes (15-16-17-18) were used by the Ryan family as their own layout along what is now known as the “adult swimming pool”.

In 1967, Robert Trent Jones was retained to design an 18-hole championship quality golf course. After many meetings, the course development was started in 1968. Nine holes were opened in the Spring of 1969 and by October the full eighteen holes were played. The present large pool and cabana were completed and in use in 1970.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a resident of the Panther Valley community in order to join the Panther Valley Golf and Country Club?

No, you do not have to be a resident of Panther Valley in order to join.

Do I have to be a member in order to use the Club’s banquet facilities?
No, you do not have to be a member or know a member in order to use our banquet facilities. Please contact our Food & Beverage Manager, Erik Gudmundsson at (908) 850-0800 for more information regarding holding your event at the Panther Valley Golf & Country Club.

If I leave Panther Valley Golf and Country Club do I lose the initiation fee and Proprietary Certificate that I purchased to join?
When you are invited to join the Club you will pay an initiation fee and you will be asked to purchase a Proprietary Certificate. If you chose to leave the Club, your name goes on the Proprietary Certificate redemption list and the amount you paid for your Proprietary Certificate will be returned to you as soon as possible. The Board of Trustees of Panther Valley Golf and Country Club is committed to reimbursing former members for their Proprietary Certificates as soon as financially practical. If a member leaves the Club with a balance due, all or part of the funds paid for their Proprietary Certificate may be retained by the Club.

The Board of Trustees recently increased the Proprietary Certificate and decreased the initiation fee. The result of this change is that members who join under our newer membership categories will experience a greater return of their initial investment when they leave the Club.

Is there a food minimum?
There is a food minimum, but the term “minimum” is really a misnomer. It is more appropriately called a food “prepayment.” As you purchase food in the Clubhouse, up at the Pool, or at the Halfway House out on the course, the cost of the food you purchase comes out of your pre-payment. Most of our members find that they’ve already exhausted their food prepayment by mid-summer—which is a testament to the quality of the food and service at the Club. In fact, with the addition of Chef Darren Lewinski, we think the quality of our food is among the best in the area!

A Treasure Designed by Famed Designer Robert Trent Jones

Our 18-hole championship golf course was designed by acclaimed golf architect Robert Trent Jones.

Robert Trent Jones has built or rebuilt nearly 400 courses around the world—more than three dozen of them having played host to national or international championships, including Firestone, Hazeltine, Spyglass Hill, Baltusrol and Oak Hill. We are very proud of the fact that our course was designed by such a prestigious golf course architect. Mr. Jones designed a very challenging and picturesque course that our members and their guests never get tired of playing.

A Beautiful Setting for Relaxing or Having Fun.

Panther Valley Golf & Country Club is known for its Championship golf course, but other amenities that Panther families can take advantage of are the 3 different pools and tennis courts. This is the perfect location to relax during the summer months and enjoy some of the many planned day and evening activities offered for the entire family.

Individual swim lessons are available during regular pools hours and, for your convenience, fees will be charged to your account.

The Cabana houses the Snack Bar, Men’s and Women’s locker rooms, and last but not least, The Wicker Room Bar.

The centerpiece of the pool complex is the L-shaped family pool, complete with a diving board and lap lanes for all to use. For the very young members, there’s a wading pool which is conveniently located next to the Family pool and Jungle Gym with Sandbox. The Wading Pool is situated in such a way so that you can be spending time with your “little ones” without losing sight of your “older ones” in the shallow end of the Family Pool.

Finally, nestled amongst the tree lined views of Panther Valley, is our Adult Pool. This pool is located on the other side of The Cabana. The adult pool is a great place to relax and unwind, listen to music, and enjoy a beverage in The Wicker Room Bar. The Wicker Room, adjacent to the pool, is the ideal place to escape the summer heat with other members while enjoying a drink or snack.

Regardless of your age, you’ll be able to have fun and relax up at the pool!
