Arcola CC is the 2015 Hoffman Cup Champ

The Red Hoffman Cup Matches crowned a new champion, Arcola Country Club in May.  In its first trip to the Finals, Arcola shot an impressive 209 (1-under par) to capture the title over three other strong Finalists: Black Oak Golf Club (213), Baltusrol Golf Club (213) and Plainfield Country Club  (216). 

Thank you to Finals host Morris County Golf Club, for your impeccable hospitality.  Your club and your course were equally impressive!

Finally, thank you to Isabel Gonzales and Brendan Komitus, recent high school graduates, First Tee veterans, and First Tee of Raritan Valley college scholarship recipients, who helped out with the day-of activities.  They are great examples of the quality kids who are participating in The First Tee.

By the Numbers:

2 -- The number of scores under par at Morris County Golf Club in the HCM Finals (by the strongest field ever in the event).

8 -- The HCM clubs that boast a spot on GolfWorld magazine's "Best Classic Courses."

60 -- The number of years Arthur K. "Red" Hoffman, long-time dean of New Jersey golf writers, covered New Jersey golf, starting with the Newark News right after five years of service in WWII. Hoffman wrote more (and came to know more) about New Jersey golf than anyone.

864 -- The number of rounds in April and May played by participants in the 2015 HCM.

$56,000 -- A conservative estimate of the caddie fees that were generated by the 2015 HCM (800 rounds x $70/loop).

$60,000 – In its first four years, the amount generated by our team captains in support of our First Tee Initiative, which donates funds to support New Jerseys' four local First Tee chapters.
