On Monday, Oct. 7, Provident and the NJSGA will stage the second annual NJ Corporate Golf Challenge presented by Provident Bank at the prestigious Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson, with a goal to build on the noted success of the inaugural event won by Magyar Bank.
“We were thrilled to be a part of the inaugural event, and for our group to come out on top made what was already a great day even more special” said John Fitzgerald, President and CEO of Magyar Bank. “The NJ Corporate Golf Challenge is a great opportunity to network with business leaders, play some of the most prestigious courses in the state, and raise funds for a terrific cause. We look forward to participating again this year.”
The experience Fitzgerald and his colleagues enjoyed at Trump Bedminster was consistent with praises from all in attendance last fall. While everyone agreed the golf experience was first class, the positive feedback around the event’s networking and charitable initiatives was exactly what corporate partners Provident Bank and the NJSGA wanted to hear. The event will once again have the look and feel of an NJSGA championship, a distinct difference from most Monday morning charity golf outings. Golfers will play their own ball and individual scores will be calculated on a net basis using a Stableford scoring system to generate an 18-hole team point total. The format rewards aggressive play without the worry of having to complete each hole. The event is open to teams representing New Jersey-based companies from all business sectors. So far, registered teams from banking, finance, legal, insurance, energy and healthcare are expanding the networking reach of the event.
Most importantly, the one-day event will benefit the NJSGA’s Caddie Scholarship and Youth Foundation. Together, these charities provide more than $15 million in grants to thousands of college-bound caddies and youth organizations across the state.
“We’re proud to partner with the NJSGA for the second annual NJ Corporate Golf Challenge”, said Chris Martin, President and CEO of Provident Bank. “Their charitable work with the Caddie Scholarship Fund and Youth Foundation are consistent with our brand promise of commitment and our belief in giving back to the communities we serve.”
