A Golf Tradition is Born:
The Inaugural NJ Chamber Challenge is A Success
The ping of driver meeting golf ball. The smell of fresh cut grass. The chirping of birds. A beautiful golf course and temps topping out at 71 degrees. That was the setting for the inaugural NJ Chamber Golf Challenge on May 7. One hundred golfers plied their skill on the 18 holes at Bedens Brook Club in Skillman in a fast-paced shotgun start that kept everybody on the move at a comfortable pace in a serene atmosphere.
Awards were presented to the top performing foursomes but it was the networking that took place that made the day a great success. "This was a great way to get to know each other better and to network with people representing many diverse interests," said Tom Bracken, president and CEO of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. "Based on the comments I heard from all of the participants, we'll do the tournament again next year."
In addition to the round of golf, each participant received a series of gifts including an elegant wood framed photo of his or her foursome as a keepsake.
The Chamber Challenge trophy etched with the names of each year's champions will remain on permanent display at the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce headquarters in Trenton.
A special thank you to Prudential, the golf outing's prime sponsor. Additional thanks to platinum sponsors Ernst & Young and Capital One; and to Lowenstein Sandler for sponsoring the golf shirts.
