The road to the coveted FedEx Cup starts with THE NORTHERN TRUST golf tournament. One-hundred-and-twenty-five top golfers will compete to advance to the next tournament, but for one in five players, their journey for the cup will end.
Set at the picture-perfect Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, the tournament will offer five thrilling days of golf. Attendees will have impeccable views as top golfers from around the world make way through the challenging course in hopes of bringing home the coveted NORTHERN TRUST trophy. In addition, the event will hone signature elements of New Jersey’s culture, offering the best in food and fashion. New for 2018 and located on the 12th hole is The First Round Beer Garden, which will offer a variety of craft beer and delectable cuisine — it is a must-attend during the tournament.
A day at the tournament could begin by watching your favorite golfer sharpen his skills on the practice green or by taking a few swings yourself at the Mastercard Club Topgolf Crush! (if you’re a Mastercard holder) before heading to hole one as the tournament begins. As you make your way from hole to hole with your favorite golfer, stop at the Garden State Marketplace for a variety of local New Jersey food options, including Luke’s Lobster, Sanducci’s Trattoria and Wine & Dine Presented by William Hill Estate Winery. Before going home don’t forget to stop at one of the mini fashion studios to purchase premium items with custom embroidery and styles. If you have kids, stop by the designated kid’s autograph zone to get their new hat signed by their favorite golfer.
Former winners of THE NORTHERN TRUST include Adam Scott, Jason Day, Matt Kuchar and two-time winner Dustin Johnson. Since its inception, the tournament has generated more than $48 million for New York/New Jersey metropolitan-area charities.
