(HILLSBOROUGH, N.J.)Royce Brook Golf Club – in collaboration with Hillsborough Township in central New Jersey – is providing meals to seniors in the community who cannot leave their homes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In partnership with Hillsborough Social Services, Royce Brook helps provide 25 free meals three times per week to seniors who cannot leave their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and do not have local family nearby to assist. Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Head Chef Mark Barrows and staff prepare meals at the club to be delivered by Hillsborough township employees and drivers to residences throughout the community.

“We are so honored and humbled by the efforts of our team in providing food for the local senior population,” says Eric Thompson, general manager of Royce Brook Golf Club. “This pandemic has paralyzed the elderly community more than anyone else, so the least we can do is make sure they have everything they need to get through these tough times.”

Opened in 1998 and designed by Steve Symers, Royce Brook features two courses: the private West Course, and the public East Course. Both courses are par-72 and a parkland-style layout through wetlands and wild native turf intertwining with abundant wooded areas. The courses are currently open for play utilizing recommended CDC guidelines and adhering to the executive orders regarding golf. Members may call the pro shop to schedule a tee-time and the public can make a reservation online-only here.

“We are counted on to be an asset to the town of Hillsborough,” continues Thompson. “So now is the time to step up for those less fortunate than us.”
