History Articles

The rich and fascinating history of our Club began more than 120 years ago. The Ridgewood Country Club story will be developed in a series of short articles that will appear regularly on the History Article page. Please send feedback on these stories, corrections, comments and suggestions for future articles to the history committee, info@rcc1890.com.

 
This video of vintage 1935 Ryder Cup footage was taken by former member John A. McNulty.  The estate of former member, Joseph P. McNulty shared a copy with The Ridgewood Country Club in 2020.  Joe often spoke of being a young lad when his father took him to the Ryder Cup matches.  The footage was found amongst old home movies, converted into digital format, and authenticated by the USGA in 2018.
