The Ridgewood Country Club was designed by classic golf course architect, A.W. Tillinghast, who often said Ridgewood was his favorite course. Over the years, this course has played host to the Ryder Cup, the US Amateur and US Senior Open, the Senior PGA Tour, the Barclay’s FedEx tournaments in 2008, 2010, and 2014, and the 2018 PGA Northern Trust Tournament.
This year’s Golf Classic is sponsored by BD (event sponsor), Brake Parts Inc. (dinner sponsor), and M&T Bank and NPC (sponsors). Additional sponsorship opportunities, ranging from $100 to $25,000 are still available, and includes a company listing on the Foundation website with a link to the sponsor website. Sponsorships also guarantee exposure to 10,000+ individuals on the Foundation’s mailing list and social media network.
