The R.W. Nelson Guest House, named after the founder of the 102-year-old Scotch Plains, N.J. club, features three guest rooms that are available individually or for combined use, plus a separate sitting area with a stone fireplace. The first guest after the Nelson House opened in May was legendary LPGA golfer Jan Stephenson, who visited the club to conduct a short-game clinic for members and showcase her line of California wines.
Shackamaxon Country Club in Scotch Plains, N.J., recently announced the opening of its new R.W. Nelson Guest House. The renovation of this former rustic cottage now provides fine overnight accommodations for members and guests of the club, and the first guest to enjoy the luxury space was legendary LPGA golfer Jan Stephenson, who visited the club in May to conduct a short-game clinic for members and showcase her award-winning California wines.
The R.W. Nelson Guest House is named after Shackamaxon CC’s original owner and founder, who was also President of the American Type Founders Company. Shackamaxon CC was founded in 1916.
The Nelson Guest House includes three beautifully appointed guest rooms, The Tillinghast Room, The Westfield Suite and The Levin Room, which honors Philip Levin, a majority owner of MGM Studios and the former owner of Shackamaxon CC in the 1960s.
The three guest rooms are available individually or for combined use, and the guest house also includes a separate sitting area with a stone fireplace.
The R.W. Nelson Guest House affords easy access to the club’s historic A.W. Tillinghast-designed golf course, as well as its resort-style pool and restaurants. Additionally, the space is located near to the clubhouse and ballroom, to easily accommodate bridal parties.
“I’m proud we are honoring the club’s founder, Mr. R.W. Nelson, and its previous owners, Mr. Philip Levin and his wife, in this way,” said Det Williams, Shackamaxon CC’s Club Manager. “I’m excited to add to the club’s long list of amenities with this luxurious lodging option for members, club dignitaries and wedding guests. I’m sure it will be enjoyed and appreciated by all who visit.”
