Tee off with the Stars

By Samantha Coles

This story originally appeared in the January/February 2018 issue of Elite Traveler.

If our latest issue’s roundup of top golf courses or interview with the legendary Jack Nicklaus has you reaching for your clubs, we’ve got just the thing. Head to Ridgewood Country Club in Bergen County, New Jersey, August 21–26 for the Northern Trust — the event that kicks off the final leg of the PGA Tour — which features a top-notch Pro-Am package. Only the tour’s top 125 players in the FedExCup Playoffs, a season-long points race to earn the title of PGA Tour Champion, can compete in the Northern Trust event (as Elite Traveler went to press, Dustin Johnson is top of the leaderboard with Jordan Spieth close behind).

Get a slice — or a wedge — of the action before the lead event at the Pro-Am, where you can play alongside a top-50-ranked PGA Tour player such as Spieth, Jason Day or Justin Thomas. The Pro-Am package includes an exclusive invite to the draw party. Last year, the fête was hosted by 13-time Emmy Award–winning broadcaster Jimmy Roberts and featured a master distillers’ showcase of Facundo Bacardi private rum reserves, classic martinis by Grey Goose vodka and premium food pairings. When the tournament begins, guests receive clubhouse badges for the ultimate spectator experience — close proximity to the players while enjoying delicious cuisine from famed chefs paired with signature cocktails.
