Schiavone Cup Set For Sept. 25-26 At Forsgate C.C.
The seventh annual R.A. Schiavone Memorial Cup will take place Sept. 25-26 at Forsgate Country Club in Monroe.
The two-day pro-senior stroke play tournament, which is contested on Forsgate’s 6,904-yard, par-71 Banks Course, is sanctioned by both the New Jersey PGA Section and the New Jersey State Golf Association. Points will be awarded for NJSGA Senior Player of the Year Award.
The Schiavone Cup is named in honor of longtime Garden State golf course owner/investor Ronald A. Schiavone.
Open to senior (50 and over) amateur players and golf professionals of any age, the event begins on Sept. 25 with 18 holes of stroke play for the senior amateur players. On Sept. 26, the senior amateurs will return to the club with the professionals joining them in a team match concurrent with the second round of the individual amateur medal play.
On that day, while competing as a team, the pros will also be participating in an Individual Pro Medal Play Championship, featuring a $5,000 purse ($2,000 first place). A steak and lobster dinner and awards presentation will cap off the tournament activities.
The entry fee for this event is $350 and includes both days for senior amateur and professional. The field is limited to 60 teams. For more information or to register a team, contact Mike Furey or Carolyn McKenzie Andrews at 732-656-8959.
