The history of the Blue Hill Golf Course, Rockland County’s oldest course, begins near the turn of the 20th century. New York City businessman, Montgomery Maze, purchased more than 300 acres of land in Pearl River for a summer home. A stone mansion, built around 1901 and modeled after an Irish castle, was the estate’s centerpiece. Today this building serves as the course’s restaurant.
Around 1906 Maze built the course’s first holes, and by 1920, the full 18 holes were completed. When Maze passed away in 1914, the entire estate was transferred to his son, M. Montgomery Maze, Jr., who would later be President of the First National Bank and Trust Company of Pearl River, as well as a founding member of the Pearl River Rotary Club. It was the younger Maze who developed the private Blue Hill Country Club, chartered by New York State in 1924. When Maze Jr. passed away in 1964 much of his property was sold to the Uris Corporation, who would develop it into Blue Hill Plaza.
The Town of Orangetown acquired the golf course in 1967, turning it into a public facility. After the damming of the Hackensack River, holes 11 through 15 were inundated, golf course architect Frank Duane was charged with reconfiguring the course. In 1995 an additional 9 holes were added by golf course architect Stephen Kay, bringing the course to its present configuration of 27 holes in three sections “The Pines,” “Lakeside,” and “Woodlands.”
