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. 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.”
“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.
