About Us

Founder Robert W. Nelson was looking to move his family from Staten Island to somewhere in the Westfield, NJ area. Looking for a farm and a lake, he was shown the Lambert Farm. The farm had everything Mr. Nelson was looking for - meadows, woods and a lake. On the advice of a friend, Mr. Nelson decided to build a golf course & club on his farm. He named the club Shackamaxon to honor the name of the Native Americans that once lived in this area. The word Shackamaxon translates to "a place where chiefs meet."
