Sponsor and member teams competed along with pros in an 18-hole event on the September 10th.  The Championship Round was held on September, 11th, 12th and 13th.  Congratulations to Javier Sanchez who won the event at 9 under par and to Danny Edwards who won the Super Senior Masters at 1 under par.

Local and national companies, as well as individual golfers, have embraced and supported this event and the tournament charity, New Jersey Golf Foundation.  Over $43,000 was raised in the past three years through this event to support golf in schools, including Lakewood, Jackson, Howell, Brick, Neptune, and Plumsted School Districts.

 $10,000 of this year’s proceeds will be staying right within the Lakewood community to help fund the “First Tee Three Hole Learning Center” in Lakewood Park.

 

“We really appreciate the work and effort PGA Professional and Spirit Golf President Mike Attara, has done to pull the local business community in to support both the charity and bringing the Senior Professionals to Lakewood, NJ,” says Tom Eubank, President of the Charity Pro Am Tour.

NJGF, Spirit Golf Management and Eagle Ridge Golf Club have been helping raise funds through the Senior Masters event to support the NJGF golf in schools program and the Monmouth & Ocean First Tee Chapter. In addition to helping raise $10,000 for the new teaching facility, Mike Attara of Spirit Golf Management has been  acting project manager for the new First Tee Three Hole Learning Center in Ocean County Park working with course designer Brain Ault and course contractor Tony Pavelec.

The new facility is scheduled to open late spring/early summer of 2014 and will provide the children of Lakewood with a chance to learn the game and life lessons provided as part of the First Tee and NJGF program.
