Liberty National Hosts 2027 BMW Championship; Proceeds to Benefit NJSGA Evans Scholars Foundation

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - The The PGA TOUR, Western Golf Association (WGA) and BMW officials announced today that the 2027 BMW Championship will be played at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey.  

Liberty National is well known for hosting multiple high-profile professional events, including the Presidents Cup in 2017 and THE NORTHERN TRUST in 2009, 2013, 2019 and 2021. Most recently, the club hosted the 2023 Mizuho Americas Open hosted by Michelle Wie-West.  

Most notably, the 2027 BMW Championship will help benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation (ESF) and its mission of awarding full tuition and housing college scholarships to deserving youth caddies. All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the ESF, which since 2007, has raised more than $45 million for Evans Scholarships.  

In 2022, the ESF established a long-term partnership with the New Jersey State Golf Association’s (NJSGA) Caddie Scholarship Foundation to promote and develop youth caddie opportunities at clubs in New Jersey and expand scholarship funding for caddies in the state. 

“The BMW Championship at Liberty National Golf Club will give us an opportunity to show a new market the power of the Evans Scholars Program,” said WGA President and CEO John Kaczkowski. “This is an important step in our efforts as we continue to grow from coast to coast and reach more deserving young caddies.” 

There are 1,130 Evans Scholars enrolled in 24 leading universities nationwide this year, including 10 students at Rutgers University in New Jersey. 

“The NJSGA Caddie Scholarship Foundation is thrilled to partner with the ESF to further increase scholarship opportunities for New Jersey caddies,” said Michael McFadden, President of the NJSGA, former NJSGA Caddie Scholarship recipient and Rutgers graduate. “This long-term collaboration, including a partnership with Rutgers University, provides the opportunity to transform lives of more young men and women in New Jersey.”
