Njsga, Njpga Come Together With New Look  For Year-end Celebration Of Golf

The annual NJSGA/NJPGA Celebration of Golf, which honors the best golfers of the season and their supporters in a year-end fete will have a decidedly new look and spin when it takes place this fall on Thursday, Nov. 3.

Traditionally, the event is conducted at a country club within New Jersey, but Liberty House in Jersey City, offering views of the Manhattan skyline, will be the spectacular new venue.

And the Celebration of Golf will have a new slant to it as well. When in the past the event evolved from cocktail party to sit-down dinner and acceptance speeches, this year’s “new” Celebration will include an event-long large party of 300 or so attendees to allow for a maximum networking evening with a millennial feel.

Food stations will be available to eat and drinks will be served.

Interspersed during the evening will be video highlights of individuals and taped acceptance speeches which will allow more time for guest sto intermingle and connect.

Last fall, NJPGA Officers Scott Paris, David Reasoner and Joe Kelly presented a directive to enhance the traditional “Celebration of Golf.” They designated Keith Stewart, a member of their Board of Directors, as the public relations chairman and John Mascari his vice chairman.

They met with NJSGA executive director Kevin Purcell and NJPGA executive director Chris Bauer. Stewart and Mascari presented a new “Celebration of Golf “ night, one that took the most loved aspects of the old event and created a new event with a truly millennial feel.

“We were losing the next generation of golfer at an event like this. With an exceptional new venue and an open atmosphere to talk, those in attendance will be blown away at how forward thinking our two organizations are ahead of others in golf,” said Stewart, head professional at Springdale Country Club in Princeton.

“We wanted to make this event more true to its namesake, an opportunity for the golf community in NJ to celebrate the season, our accomplishments and honor those who helped make it a success,” said Mascari, head pro at Preakness Hills Country Club.

“The celebration of golf will serve as a chance for us to recognize special accomplishments from the past season, while also giving our two organizations a chance to intertwine and enjoy a fun night out,” he said.

The Liberty House in Jersey City overlooking lower Manhattan is beyond impressive.

“We all felt to really bring a paradigm shift to this event we needed an amazing new venue. We are so happy the Liberty House was available. Their location combined with our honorees will produce a night unlike any other Celebration of Golf we have ever attended,” Stewart said.
