Cherry Valley Country Club, located in Skillman, N.J. was selected by the New Jersey Golf Course Owners Association as its Course of the Year and has been submitted to the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) as the official nominee of the New Jersey Chapter.

The NGCOA will pick an overall, national winner (and recognize all chapter nominees) during its annual Solutions Summit in New Orleans, Louisiana, February 7-11, 2006.

The state award will be presented at the New Jersey Chapter’s Fourth Annual Golf Outing October 10, 2005, at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township.

In naming Cherry Valley Country Club as Course of the Year, the New Jersey Chapter of the NGCOA noted, “Cherry Valley Country Club is a wonderful golf course — a great member-owned family club with full recreational amenities. It’s a true example of a country club being a integral part of the community that it serves.”

“We’re extremely pleased to be bestowed this honor,” said Allan Bowman, Director of Golf at Cherry Valley Country Club. “We work hard to ensure our members and their guests enjoy the best golf experience possible – and the best club experience as well.”

At both the state and national level, the Course of the Year awards are based on the exceptional quality of the course and its ownership and management; its outstanding contribution to its community; and its significant contribution to the game of golf.

Noted golf course architect Rees Jones designed the 18-hole championship golf course at Cherry Valley Country Club in 1985. The course is well known in the area for its undulating greens, contoured fairways and meticulous keeping.

Located just four miles from historic Princeton, Cherry Valley Country Club was named the New Jersey PGA Club of the Year in 2001. On September 20 through 22nd, the club will host the Lincoln/NJPGA Section Championship.
