TRENTON COUNTRY CLUB
History of Trenton Country Club
Cross the threshold of our clubhouse and enter a world of congenial camaraderie that began its legacy in the late 1890s. Follow in the footsteps of our notable members and guests. Astor (1901), Roosevelt (1901), Rockefeller (1911), Chaplin (1919), and Crosby (1928) are just a few of the distinguished guests who signed Trenton Country Club’s leather-bound registry as they entered to dine with friends and colleagues or enjoy an afternoon on one of America’s first golf courses.
