Cognizant Founders Cup Event at Montclair CC

Greater Newark attends the Cognizant Founders Cup at Upper Montclair Country Club. Our Juniors were invited to dress in the attire the Founders wore in the early days of golf.

LPGA*USGA Girls Golf (Girls Golf) is the only national junior golf program that specializes in providing girl-friendly environments for juniors to learn the game of golf.

We’re the experts in making the game of golf fun, and we teach more than just stance and swing; we teach girls valuable life skills like effective oral communication, confidence and perseverance.

Each of the 500 Girls Golf sites help prepare girls ages 6 – 17 for a lifetime of enjoyment of the game while also inspiring them to feel confident, build positive self-esteem and live active and healthy lives through The Five E’s of Girls Golf.

We’re on a mission to change the face of the game . . . join the movement and help us inspire even more girls through golf! #LittleGirlsBIGDreams
