HACKENSACK, N.J. – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco, the Board of County Commissioners, the County Parks Department, and the County’s Division of Veteran Services announce that all Bergen County Veterans and active-duty service members can enjoy a free round of golf at any of the County’s six golf courses on Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th. To ensure availability, this year, Veterans will be able to reserve a tee-time in advance by calling the County’s Division of Veteran Services during normal business hours at 201-336-6325. Reservations must be made by November 3 at 4pm.
Concurrently, the Bergen County Parks Department’s Division of Golf will also host a Veterans Day Scramble Golf Tournament at 1p.m. on Friday, November 11 at Soldier Hill Golf Course in Emerson. The 9-hole shotgun start tournament is open to the first 36 Veterans and active-duty service members to register by calling 201-336-6033 during normal business hours.
“While we can never fully repay those who have faithfully served our nation in the Armed Forces, it is our duty to show them our support and appreciation here at home,” said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco. “This is an opportunity for the County of Bergen to express their gratitude to those who have served our nation. On behalf of the people of Bergen County, thank you to all our active duty and retired service members. We will never take for granted the sacrifices you and your families have made to protect the freedoms and liberties we all hold dear.”
“Our Nation owes a debt to our Veterans that we can never fully repay,” said Commissioner Thomas J. Sullivan. “This is just one small way to show our gratitude for the sacrifices our troops made through their service to our country. In Bergen County, we will always love, support, and honor our Veterans!”
To enjoy this opportunity, Veterans and active-duty service members must be residents of Bergen County. Veterans and active-duty service members can reserve a tee-time for up to four golfers but golfers accompanying the reservation who are not active-duty or a Veteran must pay full price. Active-duty service member and Veteran status will be confirmed over the phone upon making the reservation.
Bergen County has six golf courses which include Darlington Golf Course in Mahwah, Orchard Hills Golf Course in Paramus, Overpeck Golf Course in Teaneck, Rockleigh Golf Course in Rockleigh, Soldier Hill Golf Course in Emerson, and Valley Brook Golf Course in River Vale.
