Needham Golf Club:
Needham Golf Club (NGC) was designed by professional golf architect Wayne Stiles, a contemporary of the legendary Donald Ross and A.W. Tillinghast. Mr. Stiles designed over 30 courses during his career including Woodland Golf Club in Newton and Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown. NGC challenges the skilled golfer yet is fair and enjoyable for the recreational, junior or senior player. The course is known for its lush, tree-lined fairways, challenging greens and excellent condition thanks to our Superintendent Tim Hood, who maintains the course with a passion for excellence.
The Needham Golf Club also offers a social membership to members who are not golf enthusiasts.
Club House: NGC built our new clubhouse in 2011. This beautiful building is the culmination of years of planning which is reflected in its comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Dining is available in the grill room area and on the covered deck overlooking the first and ninth holes. Small and large functions can be accommodated by our chef and professional food and beverage staff. on a nice day you walk to the golf club for dinner it will only take you 15 minutes.
