The New Jersey State Golf Association invites one two-man team from a member club (Public or Private) to participate in the 2019 Ultimate Team Event (“UTE”), presented by the Caribbean islands of St. Kitts. The UTE is a 27-hole, two-man team, net tournament using three different formats for each nine-hole round. Pinehurst, Four-Ball, and Shamble are the three formats for the event.
For the first time in its five year history, the UTE will be played at a public venue. The highly anticipated event will be held in the mountains of northwest New Jersey at one of the finest facilities in the Garden State, Wild Turkey and Cascades at the Crystal Springs Resort. Teams will have the opportunity to play discount practice rounds and stay overnight before and/or after the UTE.
In a change to the day, any team in the field has the chance to be randomly selected through a drawing at the end of the awards reception to receive an all-expenses paid trip to St. Kitts. The lucky team will represent the NJSGA and compete in the 2020 Admirals Cup Am-Am, which is the St. Kitts Tourism Authority's signature golf event.
Each player on the top five overall teams, plus the first-place teams in each of the three formats, will be awarded at $500 credit certificate for use toward entry into the 2020 Admirals Cup, along with pro shop credit for use at Wild Turkey that day.
Criteria for clubs and courses to submit a team into the UTE:
It is at the discretion of the club to determine the method of selecting their team. The NJSGA strongly encourages that a qualifier be held to determine the team members; however, the club can designate the champions of an existing club event as their representatives in the UTE.
There are 72 team positions available. NJSGA will accept multiple teams from member clubs in order of entry, but only if there are vacant positions.
The member club or golf course must a member in good standing with the New Jersey State Golf Association.
Priority acceptance of entries will be granted to clubs who host a qualifier to determine their two-man team for the UTE.
NOTE: As an incentive for clubs to conduct a qualifying competition, St. Kitts is pleased to enhance your local club qualifier with rum sampling and prizes. Reach email Rich Kennedy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate.
At the time of entry, registrants must provide a means of verification (name and email address) from a Club Employee or an officer from the Club Committee.
More than one team from a club will be allowed enter the UTE only if there are openings.
