About Baltusrol Golf Club

Baltusrol Golf Club, synonymous with champion-ship golf, sits at the base of Baltusrol Mountain in northern New Jersey, only a stone’s throw from New York City. With a rich heritage that dates back to 1895, Baltusrol is considered one of the country’s premier private golf clubs. Its two championship courses, the Lower and Upper, have played distinguished roles on the national golf stage since their creation by Golden Age architect A.W. Tillinghast. Together, the courses have hosted 17 major championships, including seven U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships. The Lower Course is currently closed for an extensive renovation performed by famed architect, Gil Hanse. The Lower Course will open in the spring of 2021 and will host the 2023 KPMG Women's PGA Championship and the 2029 PGA Championship.

Statement from Executive Director, Chris Hunt

The NJGF Golf Classic is the signature fundraising event on the New Jersey Golf Foundation’s annual calendar. Each year, the Chairman’s Award is given annually to an individual who works tirelessly behind the scenes to support programs and initiatives for youth, military and individuals with special needs. As the global pandemic has wreaked havoc in communities across the country, and with many NJGF programs frozen, the NJGF Golf Classic committee feels strongly that the 2020 event should support community relief efforts. The 2020 NJGF Golf Classic will honor the heroic efforts of healthcare workers and first responders throughout  RWJBarnabas Health, who have been on the frontlines battling the COVID-19 pandemic. The largest, most comprehensive academic health care system in New Jersey, RWJBarnabas Health is committed to the ongoing improvement of the health, quality of life, and the vitality of communities throughout New Jersey. With a service area covering nine counties with five million people, RWJBarnabas Health’s service to the people of New Jersey extends far beyond the care provided within the hospital walls, as the system supports programs that promote health and wellness in our communities, while  providing access to services that would otherwise be unavailable.
This is our opportunity to applaud the selfless efforts of so many doctors, nurses, EMT’s, patient reps, and all of the 
“Heroes,” who are committed to working tirelessly to care for thousands of patients each day. This year we say THANK YOU to the 35,000 employees across the system and recognize the TRUE heroes, who continue to step up and inspire us all to help make a difference! Proceeds from the 2020 event at the acclaimed Baltusrol Golf Club will support The RWJBarnabas Health Emergency Response Fund, which provides personal protective equipment (PPE) and the necessary resources to ensure the safety of all patients, caregivers and staff.
