about us

Through a wide range of programming, the NJGF champions a commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) with the goal of evolving the composition of the game of golf to better reflect the broad array of differences in our society at large.

 

With a focus on 3 core pillars (youth, military, special needs), the NJGF's mission is to positively impact lives and communities through the game of golf.

 

Led by PGA Professionals, the NJGF hosts a dynamic line-up of programming that provides access for individuals from all backgrounds to experience the game of golf in a welcoming environment.
