Its fascinating history, picturesque grounds and superb facilities make Fiddler’s Elbow Golf and Country Club a most memorable place to visit. The Club includes three distinctive golf courses and a stately English manor house on nearly a thousand acres. Located in New Jersey’s ecologically rich Upper Raritan Watershed, Fiddler’s property is divided between Somerset and Hunterdon Counties by the winding and twisting waters of the Lamington River, a branch of the Black River. Interestingly, it was the waterway that gave Fiddler’s its most unique name. At a town meeting to officially dub the course, the Black River Country Club, a club attorney, reviewing an old map of the property, noticed a spot south of the existing clubhouse marked “Fiddler’s Elbow”. Sure enough, at this point the Lamington made a bend resembling the arm of a man playing a fiddle. The owners immediately adopted the new name and it has since enjoyed a niche in the local lore.
