Golf Digest Rates Meadows Course Among the Best

August 5, 2008 -- The Meadows at Middlesex has been named to Golf Digest magazine’s 2008-09 “Best Places to Play” list.

The 6,290-yard, par-70 championship course in Plainsboro is owned and operated by the Middlesex County Improvement Authority (MCIA).

Golf Digest, which circulates to more than 1.5 million subscribers nationwide, rates nearly 6,000 courses in North America and the Islands each year. The courses were evaluated by approximately 20,000 Golf Digest readers on a five-point scale.

Golf Digest is considered a must-read among golf enthusiasts and to be named to its “Best Places to Play” list is truly exciting,” said MCIA Chairman Leonard J. Roseman. “We strive to offer a great golfing experience at an affordable price. This ranking lets us know that we are successfully serving our patrons.”

In 2007, the Meadows at Middlesex received a new rating from the United States Golf Association, which performed an on-site inspection and review of the course. The new rating defines the degree of difficulty and slope at a higher level than previously established.

The bent grass course plays host to a number of outings for various organizations and charitable events and offers some of the lowest outing fees in the area. More than 26,825 rounds were tallied in 2007.

Purchased by the MCIA in early 1999, The Meadows was designed by Joe Finger in 1972 and finished in 1980 by Tom Fazio.
