Renovations Breathe Life Into Popular New Jersey Track
The restoration of East Orange Golf Course is scheduled for completion in late 2015. The course has been open for play during the summer and fall while the project is being completed. Located in Short Hills in the Township of Millburn, the course was originally designed by Tom Bendelow, an architect renowned for making golf accessible and affordable for the public.
The restoration is being done by acclaimed architect Stephen Kay and an expert team consisting of golf course superintendent Juan Casiano, Turco Golf, Maser Engineering and Marziani and Associates Architects. Thanks to the support and commitment from the City of East Orange and Mayor Lester Taylor III.
The restoration includes:
• Building two new golf holes
• New practice/driving range
• New putting green
• New irrigation system
• Resodding of all greens with improved bentgrass variety
• Rebuilding of all tee boxes
• Redesign and rebuilding of all sand bunkers
• New 6,000 square foot clubhouse and restaurant
“After years of neglect, the golf course and the overall facility will now be a tremendous source of pride, as well as an asset to both the City of East Orange and the area surrounding the golf course,” said Mayor Taylor. “We are very pleased with the feedback we’ve received so far and look forward to golfers being able to experience the finished product.”
