Scores of 75 (+4) or better made the cut and will compete for the Gigi Carnevale Trophy on June 8-10 at the exceptional Somerset Hills Country Club.
Three competitors shared medalist honors as Zachary Brown, Steve Wilcox and Bill Bello shot a 1-over par 72 on the 6,220-yard course.
Bello, an NJSGA E-Club member carded two birdies and one eagle.
"I drove the ball well and on this golf course, that helps quite a bit," Bello reflected. "The greens were firm so I was able to play some smart numbers below the pin and hoped they held."
Overall, 18 players from the Beacon Hill qualifier advanced to the Championship at Somerset Hills. The A.W. Tillinghast design is rated one of the top 100 courses in the world. This year, GOLF ranked Somerset Hills at No. 43 and will surely be a treat for competitors that are 25 and older.
