The Bridgewater, N.J., property was established in 1911, and features a Herbert H. Barker-designed golf course, four tennis courts, two squash courts, a resort-style pool and an assortment of fine- and casual-dining options.
Troon has been selected to manage Raritan Valley Country Club in Bridgewater, N.J. 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 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, 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.”
