Billy Casper Golf to manage 4 county courses

Middlesex County has selected Billy Casper Golf to run the four golf courses the local government agency owns. The central New Jersey government agency owns Tamarack Golf Course (East and West), The Meadows at Middlesex Golf Course, and Raritan Landing Golf Course.

Under terms of the one-year contract (with four optional one-year extensions), the central New Jersey jurisdiction will pay BGC $192,500 in management fees for operating the four courses, minus a mandatory concession rental payment BGC will pay to the county for the right to run the pro shop and food and beverage services — for a net first-year payment of $139,700. The second-year terms would increase slightly to a net of $156,000. The third year would drop slightly, year four would be the same as year two, and then the final year would also see a slight increase, to $159,600.

Billy Casper Golf is the third-largest golf management company, managing more than 150 courses worldwide. Government-owned courses have long been a staple of the BGC portfolio.

Tamarack Golf Course has two championship 18-hole courses, both designed by Hal Purdy and both opened in 1971.  The East Course is a par 71, and the West Course is a 72.  The Meadows is a par 70, was designed by Tom Fazio and Joe Finger, and opened in 1979. Raritan Landing is an 18-hole executive course at par 58. It was designed by Stephen Kay, and opened in 1999.
