KENILWORTH, N.J. – As the history book closes for 2022, the 2023 New Jersey State Golf Association (NJSGA) is eager to announce its 2023 Major Championship slate. Highlighted by the Inaugural Women’s Open, the NJSGA major championship schedule is filled with exciting and challenging venues.
Leading up to the championship season, the NJSGA will preview each of the six major championships.
"Each year, the NJSGA strives to secure a diverse lineup of venues that appeals to a variety of playing styles. This year is no exception, as each of the major championship sites has unique architecture that will test all competitors," explained Brad Bardon, Director, Championships.
"We are most excited to start a new chapter in women’s golf with the inaugural NJ Women’s Open. With the addition of this new championship, 2023 will be an exciting year for championship golf in New Jersey."
After a thrilling finish at The Ridge at Back Brook in 2022, the 103rd New Jersey Open presented by Donnelly Industires will be played at historic Hackensack Golf Club from July 24-26. Hosting the Open for just the second time (2013), Hackensack Golf Club will provide a true test of championship golf. Designed by the esteemed Charles Banks, Hackensack features deep bunkers and undulating greens. Hackensack has also played host to the New Jersey Amateur in 1940, 1968, 1994 and 1999.
The 122nd New Jersey Amateur presented by Provident Bank will be contested at Manasquan River Golf Club from July 10-12. Home of three Amateur Championships (1969, 1980, 1992), the private club just celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2022 and features the highest point on the Atlantic Seaboard from Atlantic Highlands to Florida.
On the women’s side, the Inaugural Women’s Open will get underway June 21-22 at Montclair Golf Club. The NJSGA’s newest championship will showcase championship golf of both female amateurs and professionals. Montclair is no stranger to NJSGA major championships, having hosted the Open seven times (1926, 1943, 1944, 1971, 1980, 1993, 2018) and the Amateur seven times (1902, 1909, 1939, 1942, 1950, 1958, 2010).
Springdale Golf Club will welcome the best female amateur golfers in the Garden State for the 98th New Jersey Women’s Amateur and 10th Women's Mid-Amateur Championship from July 31- August 3. Formed in 1895, Springdale was designed by Gerard Lambert, then revised in 1926 by William Flynn. The Princeton-based private club last played host to the New Jersey Women’s Amateur in 1985.
The first major championship of the 2023 season will be contested at Hamilton Farm Golf Club as the 91st Four-Ball Championship will take place from May 16-18. Golf course designers Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry constructed a championship layout which features rolling vistas, tree lined fairways and challenging bunkering. The Four-Ball will mark the first NJSGA major championship hosted by the Gladstone-based private club.
Coming off an exciting year hosting the 90th Four-Ball Championship, Deal Golf & Country Club will host the 40th Mid-Amateur Championship from June 6-8. The Donald Ross course is known for its narrow fairways and complex greens just one mile away from the beautiful Jersey Shore.
