About Mount Tabor Country Club
Mount Tabor Country Club, founded in 1900, is one of the oldest private country clubs in New Jersey. MTCC is a 9-hole golf course featuring 18 tee boxes. Play on the back nine is considerably different from the front nine, due to the change in yardage and the angle from which each hole is played. Our variety of tee areas gives the “feel” of an 18-hole championship course and challenges every part of your game. Small greens and elevation changes on many of the holes creates an enjoyable test for any golfer.
