Together with Donnelly Construction, the NJSGA is proud to annually recognize the top amateur golfers in the State of New Jersey. These golfers have made their mark each year by great play in NJSGA championships and other area tournaments.
The Player of the Year Award began in 2002. Beginning in 2014, the NJSGA added a Women's Player of the Year Award, as well as a Men's Senior Player of the Year Award.
The Men's Player of the Year award became the Robert Housen Trophy in 2018.
