MIDDLESEX COUNTY –Between now and April 5, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority will be seeking bids for food and beverage vendors at its four area golf courses.
The Authority manages Middlesex County’s two Tamarack Golf Courses in East Brunswick, one at The Meadows at Middlesex in Plainsboro and another at Raritan Landing in Piscataway.
Extensive improvements are afoot at all locations, including floor-to-ceiling clubhouse renovations, an expansion of the golf-cart fleets and a reconditioning of the grounds, for instance upgrades to the fairways, greens, tee boxes and sand traps.
“We’re sowing the seeds for change – from the course conditions to the interior of facilities,” said Middlesex County Deputy Director Freeholder Carol Bellante, an MCIA liaison. “I hope that it’ll be a welcomed surprise for our loyal patrons and at the same time, an informal invitation for visitors and a new generation of golfers, who want to explore some of Middlesex County’s great golfing haunts.”
As a complement to the courses’ modern-day amenities, a full line-up of newly installed equipment has been added to each kitchen and bar, which range from approximately 1,600-to-3,100 square feet in size.
Nestled between East Brunswick’s rolling hills and tree-lined fairways, Tamarack is a standard-bearer for challenging play, boasting a popular 300-yard driving range and two 18-hole courses.
The Meadows at Middlesex, a well bunkered, 18-hole course that winds through Plainsboro’s quaint developments, has proven itself to be a scenic destination for any number of prestigious local outings and benefits.
Lastly, the unassumingly demanding, par-58, executive-style course at Raritan Landing in Piscataway features long tees and undulating greens, which have consistently garnered praise from both novice and veteran players alike.
“Our golf courses have long been known for their affordability and for their accessibility to the public,” said MCIA Board Chairman Leonard J. Roseman. “We’d expect that the updates to these properties will only add to their appeal.”
