2023 NJSGA Year in Review

2023 NJSGA Year in Review

KENILWORTH N.J. – The 2023 New Jersey golf season was a memorable one. The year of women’s golf in New Jersey brought four LPGA events to the Garden State and of course, the Inaugural New Jersey Women’s Open Championship at Montclair Golf Club. The annual New Jersey Youth Foundation Pro-Am garnered record donations and participation. Entries for the 122nd New Jersey Amateur Championship at Manasquan River reached its highest mark since the 2012 Amateur at Baltusrol. The Caddie Scholarship Foundation recognized Baltusrol Golf Club, the first club to be inducted into the Foundation’s Diamond Society. The Diamond Society recognizes those clubs, who have contributed $1 million since the Foundation’s 50th anniversary in 1997. The list can go on...


As 2023 comes to a close, we are looking back to look ahead.  

It’s the NJSGA's Year in Review 2023.
