The 2024 golf season is in full swing, and we couldn't be happier! Although the weather did not cooperate for our Season Opener and we were unable to reschedule, we are hopeful that we will be able to plan another event at Skyway in the future!

Plans are underway for our Chapter Championship, being held on Sunday, July 28 at Farmstead. There will be two formats, flighted stroke play for individuals, as well as a Team Scramble option. Keep an eye on your email for details; registration will be open soon!

It was great to meet many of our new members at the Meet & Greet on April 30 at Market Tavern. For those of you unable to attend, we hope to see you on the course or at a future event.  We have a number of fun events coming up, including inter-chapter events with the Central, Philly and NYC Chapters. We are also bringing back the Chapter Championship in July! Details and registration links can be found below and on the Events page.  Remember to check the website for additional information, events and reminders. 

Kudos to the 5 Northern NJ Teams that recently competed at the 2024 Scramble Open AT Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg VA.  A special shout out the amazing "No Mercy from Jersey" foursome for bringing home the Fourth Flight Low Gross prize!! Congrats to winners Carol Grennan, Linda Sisson, Lisette Ditters and Julie Frolish! Also competing on other teams were NNJ Chapter Members Fern Chan, Madlyn Granieri, Fran Lapinski and MJ Horowitz of the "Handi Cappers", Stephanie Terrone, Janet Bordino, Cathy Brennan & Mary LeBlanc representing "Pure Jersey"; Jean Parmelli & Loretta Lenihan of "Par-Tee of Fore", and Jan Tomasiewicz playing with the "Cardshark Scramblers".S

2024 Member Referral Program

Our 2024 "Chapter Member Referral Awards Program" is in full swing! Thank you to all our members that have provided referrals so far! So far, for the 2024 season, we have 71 new members, and over fifty percent have been member referrals. 

Kudos to Jean Parmelli, our super recruiter, who has already referred 14 new members this year! Although it might be difficult to catch Jean for first prize in our Awards Program, everyone who refers a new member still has a shot at a prize! So spread the word and invite your friends to join our fabulous chapter.

This program has been created to show our appreciation to those referring members and is in addition to the "Member Get a Member" drive by National.  Remember…the more robust our Chapter becomes, the more events we can offer at more competitive prices! If you enjoy our Chapter, invite your friends to share the fun! All members with referrals are entered into our drawing at the end of the season. The more members you refer the greater your chances for a prize!
