(Branchburg, NJ) – Billy Casper Golf and Morningstar Golf and Hospitality lead a partnership group that has acquired the popular Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, New Jersey, about one hour west of New York City.
The semi-private Fox Hollow – voted one of the top northeast golf courses by readers of Garden State Golf Magazine – features a fun and challenging, 18-hole, 6,371-yard, par-70 layout rife with elevation changes. Golfers also praise the greens which are pristine, fast and contain more-than-occasional undulations.
Originally designed by Hal Purdy, once a construction supervisor for legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course was completely re-modeled in 2000. It is augmented by a driving range with 20 grass tees and a bunkered practice green and spacious putting green. Private and group lessons are conducted by PGA professionals.
Individual, junior and corporate memberships are available, and greens and cart fees are reasonably priced. In addition to hosting special events, the attractive clubhouse boasts a well-established restaurant with majestic views of the golf course.
“Fox Hollow represents a unique opportunity to combine complimentary resources of two leading course owner-operators,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of Billy Casper Golf. “The result will be an even higher satisfaction among members and public golfers.”
“Beautiful vistas, rolling topography and some of the best holes in central New Jersey define Fox Hollow – it’s a gem,” says Matt Galvin, President and CEO of Morningstar. “Billy Casper Golf’s marketing prowess and infrastructure, and Morningstar’s local presence and hands-on involvement, will elevate Fox Hollow’s attraction locally and regionally.”
The first of many community outreaches is to grow family participation, and Fox Hollow is offering free golf to children with a paid adult after 3 p.m. daily.
Through association with the combined management team, Fox Hollow members now enjoy special opportunities to play Royce Brook Golf Club, Cranbury Golf Club and The Shore Club in New Jersey as well as Shawnee Resort in Pennsylvania.
