The NJSGA's 2024 championship schedule promises a thrilling season of golf at some of New Jersey's most prestigious golf clubs, featuring a mix of classic and modern golf architecture. The season kicks off with the 92nd Four-Ball Championship at Hollywood Golf Club from May 7-9, a venue ranked 8th in New Jersey in 2023 by Golf Digest. The Hollywood Golf Club, designed in 1917 by Walter J. Travis, is known for its exciting blend of stroke play and match play formats, and its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean adds to its allure.
The 41st Mid-Amateur Championship will take place at Union League National Golf Club from June 4-6. This club, opened in 2021, was originally designed in 1997 by Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry and has undergone significant transformations to become a visually stimulating course with deep bunkering, water hazards, and mountainous terrain.
Another highlight is the 99th Women’s Amateur & Mid-Amateur Championship, which will be held at Watchung Valley Golf Club from June 24-27. This event will be the first Women’s Amateur Championship hosted by Watchung Valley, a club known for its vast fairways, classic bunkering, and challenging greens.
In addition to these major events, the championship schedule includes various other competitions, such as the 123rd Amateur Championship at Forest Hill Field Club and the 104th Open Championship at Plainfield Country Club, both offering unique challenges and historical significance in New Jersey's golf landscape.
The NJSGA, founded in 1900, has been dedicated to promoting and conserving the true spirit of the game. They conduct men's and women's state championship tournaments, administer qualifiers for the USGA, and conduct dozens of other competitive events annually. The 2024 season will continue this tradition, providing exciting opportunities for golfers to compete and showcase their skills in New Jersey's rich golfing heritage.
