Galloping Hill Golf Course

Kenilworth, New Jersey

Daily Fee

In additional to 27 holes of golf, Galloping Hill boasts an acclaimed a la carte dining venue as well as one of the premier banquet facilities in the area seating, up to 325 guests. KemperSports was selected in 2009 through a national RFP process by Union County to manage golf course operations, guide strategic programming and provide construction management for a new 45,000 square-foot clubhouse as well as a 4,100 square-foot golf learning center. From the execution of our original contract, our relationship has been extended and expanded to include course & grounds and facility maintenance, as well as the exclusive concessionaire for Union County Golf Properties. With a mission to become the Home of Public Golf in New Jersey, KemperSports in combination with Union County, has developed Galloping Hill as the permanent residence of the New Jersey State Golf Association and the First Tee of Raritan Valley. This unique blend of services and amenities has fulfilled Union County’s goal of providing unrivaled recreation, dining and social opportunities to its residents. KemperSports worked with Union County to create the ultimate public-private partnership in the golf business in the state of New Jersey by providing residents and their guests an unsurpassed experience.
