This two-day, pro-senior scratch tournament will be staged on Forsgate’s renowned 6,904-yard, par-71 Banks Course, ranked among the best courses in New Jersey by Golf Digest magazine.
The Cup is named in honor of longtime Garden State golf course owner/investor Ronald A. Schiavone.

Open to senior (50+) scratch amateur players and club pros, the event begins on Aug. 18, with a skills competition followed by a welcome luncheon. The action on the course will then take off with a two-man team, aggregate score Pro/Senior Scratch Championship.
While competing as a team, the pros will also be competing in an Individual Pro Medal Play Championship, featuring a $5000 purse ($2,000 first place) and the amateurs will be carding the first 18 holes of their 36-hole Senior Scratch Individual Medal Play Championship. A steak and lobster dinner and awards presentation will cap off the day’s activities.
The following day on Aug. 19, the senior amateurs will return to the club for the final round of the Senior Scratch Individual Medal Play Championship.
