Golf Advisory Committee

The Golf Advisory Committee was established for the management and maintenance oversight of the Coakley-Russo Golf Course at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Lyons, New Jersey.  The committee is organized as an advisory committee subject to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 10:4-6 et seq., the Open Public Meetings Act.  

The Township Committee appoints residents of the Township, who are also members of the Coakley-Russo Memorial Golf Course, to serve on the Committee to develop policy and regulations concerning golf memberships and other golf-related activities.  The Director of Parks and Recreation serves as staff to the Golf Advisory Committee and oversees the personnel, maintenance and day-to-day operations of the golf course.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Bernards Township Golf Advisory Committee is to offer suggestions and make recommendations that will lead to the development and operation of the finest nine-hole golf facility in New Jersey and assure the membership and their guests a cost effective, courteous, respectful and pleasant golf experience.

The responsibilities of the Golf Advisory Committee include: 

  • establish rules for the golf course; establish policy for course members and their guests;
  • recommend annual membership fees, guest fees, tournament fees, seasonal opening and closing dates, hours of operation, and other such items pertaining to the course;
  • work with the Director of Parks & Recreation to develop a master plan for renovations and improvements to the course, ensure course management and maintenance via application of the contract specifications awarded to the contracted vendor, and develop the annual operating budget;
  • and communicate with the membership throughout the season via newsletters, e-mail, municipal website and other means available concerning course operations, project and events.
