In late 1949, a group of friends decided to form a new Country Club. With Sylvan Cohen, one of Philadelphia’s most respected attorneys, leading the effort, the group founded Meadowlands, now “Bluestone Country Club”.
The original purchase included 130 acres plus the manor house, swimming pool, stables, and additional facilities. Now known as “The Country House,” the stone manor that greeted visitors was a handsome and dignified structure, essentially Georgian in overall design, partially vine-clad, with tall, graceful chimneys punctuating the long roof line. Flowering shrubs and mature hardwoods framed the entire complex.
The golf course was built on open and very gently rolling land, where cattle and horses had grazed for years. When updated in the mid-90’s, seven new holes were created, a number of others were revised, trees were removed, and water was brought into play as the par-71 Championship Course became a more contemporary and stimulating test of golf.
Under Bluestone’s Master Plan, we will continuously work to ensure that our course remains a solid test that showcases the best of conditions. With six greens scheduled to be redone, The Championship Course at Bluestone Country Club will continue to greet all who play it with fresh challenges and endless enjoyment.
You'll be surprised at how many familiar faces you find when you walk into our club house. Bluestone welcomes new members and their families with open arms and a ready smile.
There is plenty to do, for the young and the young at heart. A night out with friends for dinner and dancing at your club is always a good time. And our Kidz Corner events are a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds. The children have a great time with music, fun, food, and games—while the parents dine and have some quiet time just a room away.
Games are also available for grownups, and golf is only the beginning. We have bridge teams and lessons, and the card room is a frequent afternoon destination. There is also a book club that meets for lunch monthly, and our tennis pros run great programs for players of all ages and experience levels. The pool area offers swimming, basketball court, volleyball, and a playground area for the little ones.
