Scottsdale, Ariz. (October 12, 2017) – Troon®, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage Raritan Valley Country Club in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon, will manage the historic club.
Raritan Valley Country Club was established in 1911 and in 1912 the club’s Herbert H. Barker-designed golf course opened for member play. Barker, an English professional golfer, is credited with designing more than a dozen courses in the United States between 1904 and 1914. Today, the 6,800-yard, par 72 course continues to challenge golfers with its small, undulating greens and varying terrain.
“Raritan Valley is a beautiful club located about 30 miles from New York City,” said Rob DeMore, president, Troon Privé. “We are excited to work with the members and board and will look to further elevate and market the club in a competitive private club space.”
In addition to golf, Raritan Valley also offers a mix of traditional country club amenities, including four tennis courts, two squash courts, a resort-style pool and an assortment of fine and casual dining options. The family-centric club also offers a busy social calendar, kids camps and activities, as well as competitive golf, swimming and tennis programs. The club’s luxurious clubhouse features multiple banquet rooms, a living room-style lounge, a conference/private dining room, a wine cellar and a banquet kitchen.
“Troon brings extensive operational expertise to Raritan Valley,” said John Moore, Raritan Valley Country Club Board President. “Troon’s expertise, coupled with a great country club setting, current and prospective members alike can look forward to an exceptional offering.”
The Troon Privé Division currently manages nearly 70 private clubs, half of which are member owned. Members of Troon Privé-managed clubs have exclusive access to extraordinary golf and lifestyle benefits around the world. All members can choose to receive Troon Privé Connect, Troon’s digital magazine developed specifically for the private clubs, as well as access to experience packages through Privileged Connections and premium tickets to sporting and concert events at the best price. Qualified members receive reciprocal access to other private clubs in the portfolio at a preferred Privé Privilege rate, and up to 50 percent off at Troon Golf-managed resort and daily fee facilities around the world through the Troon Advantage program.
