History
During the late 19th century and the early 1920s, much of the Fiddler's Elbow property was owned by James Nelson Pidcock, and farmed as a peach orchard. By the late 1920s, the property was part of a 20,000-acre estate, owned by investment banker Clarence Dillon and his wife, Anne.

In 1935, 530 acres along both sides of the Black River were sold to investment banker Frederick Strong Moseley Jr. and his wife, Jane Hamilton Brady. To reside and enjoy their new property, an extravagant English manor was built of Pennsylvania fieldstone. For 25 years, the Moseley’s hosted many elaborate fox hunts on their estate, complete with foot basset hounds, foxhounds and horses.

Frederick Moseley sold the property, which was then converted into a dairy farm. In 1964, Raymond J. Donovan and his partner bought the property. By 1965, they transformed it into Fiddler's Elbow Country Club with its original 27 holes of golf. By 1994, Fiddler's Elbow purchased additional acreage and designed 54 championship holes of golf, making it the largest in New Jersey. Nearly a decade later, the Donovan family fully purchased the estate and continues to elevate the clubhouse to what is experienced today.

Location
The country club is 22 minutes from Morristown, 48 minutes from Paramus and 41 minutes from Jersey City. Newark Liberty International Airport is 36 minutes away. It is a 50 minute drive from Manhattan and an hour and 15 minutes from Philadelphia. Located just off of Highway 78, the estate is tucked away on nearly 1,000 acres, yet easily accessible to your guests.

    Fantastic People, Wonderful Wedding Venue

    From the beginning to end, our experience at Fiddler's was exceptional.

    First, the event design: Working with Meghan, Fiddler's consummate wedding coordinator, was a wonderful experience in all aspects. Through the months of planning together, we were continually impressed with her professionalism, creativity, and attention to every detail, no matter how small or large. Meg's willingness to work with some of our ideas (we wanted to customize the event with our own touches to ) made the process smooth and eased our level of stress throughout. No matter what the request or concern was, Meg was there to answer our questions, and always went the extra mile!

    Second, the gourmet food: Kyle, the banquet manager, was also most attentive to our requests and needs, from our initial tasting evening, to the event itself. The food was spectacular as well as plentiful, from hors d'oeuvres to the sit down dinner, and beautifully presented; from an Asian fusion station to a pizza truck, and too many other hors d’oeuvres to mention, to chateaubriand or sea bass perfectly prepared for each guest..Based on a photo inspiration from our daughter, and Fiddler’s option to choose your own cake and filling, the Fiddler's pastry chef created the perfect custom cake!...all the way around, it was a spectacular event...from start to finish. The staff operates like a well oiled machine, and many of our guests took notice at how effortlessly they served us our different courses throughout the evening.

    Third, the facility and amenities: When you have your wedding at Fiddler’s, you have access to the club for the whole day…the whole bridal party was in the lap of luxury in the bridal suite, as they prepared for the wedding ceremony, and groomsmen in their own gentlemen’s suite…breakfast and lunch being provided in beautiful and private surroundings. Our daughter’s wedding was offsight and upon our return to Fiddler’s we encountered a thunderstorm at the beginning of what was supposed to be outdoor family photo time.. once the shower passed, Meg didn’t miss a beat and handled our arriving guests, and even provided towels so the photos could go on outside without any issue to the bride’s gown…WOW! We are still over the moon, and couldn't be happier!! Thank you Fiddler's!!
