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.

    Meg was organized, thoughtful and so helpful! Definitely recommend!!

    Fiddler's Elbow Country Club started out as the venue of our dreams and easily met that expectation in real life. While the spectacular drive into the club is impressive in itself, the first class staff, led by wedding coordinator, Meg Leese was extremely helpful and cooperative during the many months of wedding planning. She answered every email in a timely manner and if she didn't have answers to our questions immediately, she communicated receipt until she was able to follow up in more detail. My husband and I felt comfortable at every step with Meg, as she guided us through big picture details to intricate ones. The staff at Fiddler's Elbow CC was always friendly, helpful and courteous.

    Executive Chef, Michael provided us with a delicious high-end tasting, which included a variety of options for us to choose from. On the day of our wedding, the food was raved about by guests and even my husband and I were able to enjoy our own personal signature cocktails & hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour by the help of Maitre D, Kyle. (Shocking because everyone says you won't eat on your wedding day!)

    I could go on and on about the preparation, but keeping more with our actual wedding day - we enjoyed the full benefits of Fiddler's Elbow CC starting in the early morning into the evening. We utilized the beautiful bridal suite for hair and makeup and the spacious grooms area for the guys to get ready. Our ceremony was outside, behind the club on a hot 90 degree summer evening. Meg, along with the staff kept us both cool, calm and collected as we were whisked from picture location to picture location. Our bridal party were well fed, hydrated and our needs were tended to, all while Meg & staff continued to prepare the ceremony chair setup, the cards/gift table, photos & escort cards, ballroom set-up, centerpieces and band arrangement on stage. For someone who enjoyed controlling most, if not all the details of our wedding, they made it easy for me to step back and enjoy the day to the absolute fullest.

    We are now back from our honeymoon and still relishing in all the details of our wedding through photos, videos and memories. Meg is still answering our emails in a timely manner and we can't wait to go back and enjoy dinner at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club as the new Mr. & Mrs.

    To FECC and Meg Leese, thank you for making the most important day of our lives better than our dreams could have imagined.
