Union County to Preview New Driving Range and
Golf Learning Center at Galloping Hill Golf Course

 

KENILWORTH, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Community Renewal will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a preview of the new driving range and educational programs at the Galloping Hill Golf Course in Kenilworth on Monday, October 19, at 12:00 noon.

The remodeling of the 271-acre course in Kenilworth and Union is intended to make the Galloping Hill Golf Course the focal point of the Union County Division of Golf Operations’ plan to grow the game of golf in Union County with extensive but affordable adult and junior golf instructional programs.

The new driving range features 34 hitting stalls, 20 of which will be covered and heated for year-round use. By spring 2010, additional work will bring the total number of stalls to 54 at the driving range. Two of the stalls have been designed to house a state-of-the-art Video Teaching and Fitting System that will help advanced golfers, new golfers and the average golfer improve their golf game as well as their golf equipment. In addition, the educational programs feature an all-grass tee area, short game area and putting green that will be utilized by the golf instruction team to teach and simulate golf course conditions with individual, group and outreach programs.

Union County Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella will be among the speakers at the preview on Monday, October 19, along with representatives from KemperSports, one of the nation’s leading golf management companies, and a spokesman for the Professional Golf Association of America’s “First Tee” Program.

The Galloping Hill Golf Course is located off Kenilworth Blvd. in the Borough of Kenilworth, near Exit 138 off the Garden State Parkway.
