Hello Members,

Currently we are living in some very uncertain times here in New Jersey related to the COVID-19 virus.  On Saturday, March 21st. Governor Murphy issued a stay-at-home edict with some exceptions to this rule.  As of this writing, all golf courses in NJ are now closed.  
We want all of you to stay safe during this time, and you may have questions regarding leagues and events.  We are planning on opening league registration around April 1st, and have a full slate of events planned that will be on our website shortly.  We, like all of you reading this, don't know how long this health crisis will last or what will transpire in the near future. Our board will continue to monitor recommendations from our National office as well as the Governor on COVID-19.  If events or leagues need adjustment or postponement, we will work through issues as they arise.
Please remember, if we all do our part as recommended by the CDC, wash our hands frequently, contain coughs into a tissue or elbow, stay home when not feeling well, clean surfaces frequently AND USE SOCIAL DISTANCING, we will mitigate the spread of this virus much sooner. Join us in doing our part to mitigate the spread of this virus - #FlattenTheCurve.
Stay well!

As a benefit to Chapter members, we invite you to promote your own business or the company that sponsors your membership in our Member Business Directory. Please tell us about yourself so you can better connect with those looking for your products and services!

Not working in the corporate world but would like to feature a charitable organization you support? Feel free to mention the organization you volunteer with instead.

Complete this brief form and we’ll post in our Member Business Directory.   

Share your time and talents with us, and you become empowered.  By participating in our chapter, you become more connected to something greater than a sport.  You become integral to the larger community of women.  You will develop new friendships and grow as an individual.

Sharpen your skills with great guidance from the pros!
