Tamarack Golf Course
"The Best"

  

October 20, 2010 – East Brunswick, NJ. Tamarack Golf Course in East Brunswick was recently named the best golf course by readers of a Central Jersey daily newspaper. MCIA Chairman Leonard Roseman remarked, “This is a distinction that Tamarack has earned in 2010, and we are proud that Middlesex County golfers are enjoying a great public golf course.

”In terms of readership ratings, Tamarack jumped from “one of the best” in 2009 to “the best” in 2010. The facility features two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by well-known golf course architect Hal Purdy in the 1970’s. The East Course is a 6,226-yard, par-71 course, and the West Course is a 7,025-yard, par-72 course.

It has been the home of numerous Middlesex County high school golf teams, and at its East Brunswick location, it is currently partnered with First Tee of Raritan Valley to teach life skills through the game of golf to 5-18 year olds. Tamarack also hosts weekday golf leagues.

This latest designation of “the best” is added to a long list of honors Tamarack has earned. In 2009 the New Jersey State Golf Association rated Tamarack as the second most difficult course in Middlesex, Monmouth, Mercer, Somerset and Union counties.

A driving range, two large practice greens, and a full-service restaurant are located at the course which is open year-round from dawn to dusk.

Tamarack is one of three golf course locations managed by the Middlesex County Improvement Authority along with Raritan Landing Golf Course in Piscataway and The Meadows at Middlesex Golf Course in Plainsboro.
