Host site of the 2016 NJSGA Open Championship
In the Spring of 2014 Galloping Hill Golf Course completed a golf course renovation project with famed architect Rees Jones. Mr. Jones, often referred to as "The Open Doctor", took on the challenge of restoring the original shot values to Galloping Hill created by Willaird Wilkinson. The scope of work also included updating the course drainage and extensive tree work. Each bunker at Galloping Hill was renovated and built to industry standards. The result is a beautiful golf course that is fun to play for players of all skill level. This is just another step taken by Union County to provide its residents with
"The Home of Public Golf in New Jersey".
Galloping Hill Golf Course sprawls across 271 acres in Kenilworth and Union. Characterized by its natural terrain of rolling hills and valleys, the course often referred to as "The Hill", has a reputation as one of the most challenging courses in the area. The 18 hole course features 6845 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The course was designed by Williard G. Wilkinson.
In addition to the 18 hole facility, Galloping Hill offers a state of the art learning center and 9 hole practice course- The Learning Center at Galloping Hill. This facility opened in October 2009 and has 52 stalls (20 of them are covered and heated) and a 45,000 square foot practice area. The Learning Center is also home to the Fitting Lab at Galloping Hill. The Fitting Lab contains state of the art club fitting technology, video instruction and a Master club fitter. The 9 hole course with 2348 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 33, is a great place to reinforce the lessons and instruction you just received at the Learning Center.

In January 2010 KemperSports began managing Galloping Hill and The Learning Center. KemperSports is recognized as a leader in the golf course management industry and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the facility.
