Morris County NJ seeks operator for 3 courses


The park commission in Morris County, New Jersey has decided to seek a private-sector operator for three of its golf properties.

The commission plans to privatize Flanders Valley Golf Course in Flanders, Sunset Valley Golf Course in Pompton Plains and Pinch Brook Golf Course in Florham Park, whose losses have helped to put the county’s golf operations into a $2 million hole. The commission’s chairman, John Sette, told the Newark Star-Ledger said the transfer of operations is necessary because “golf revenue isn’t what it used to be.”

Last year, the commission turned over its other golf property, Berkshire Valley Golf Course in Jefferson, to Billy Casper Golf.
