MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The New Jersey Credit Union League's 23rd Annual Golf Tournament held on Tuesday, May 24th, at the beautiful Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township was a great success! With an impressive total of 160 golfers, the tournament was expanded to two courses: the legendary Banks Course, renowned for its deep bunkers and lush greens, and the scenic Palmer Course, renowned for its challenging water hazards.

It was a fun filled and eventful day that included a continental breakfast, a day on the greens, lunch, and a cocktail hour/awards ceremony.
Because golfers played on two courses, there were twice as many winners this year. The winners of the Best Team Score for the Banks Course include Todd Kimball, Shields Business Solutions; John Dawidowski, Healthcare Employees FCU; Chris Chichester, Jersey Central FCU; and Lou Ellis, Jersey Central FCU. The winners of the Best Team Score for the Palmer Course include Bill Darling, Picatinny FCU; Keith McCarthy, Picatinny FCU; and P.J. Schunke and Dave Schunke, Financial Services, Inc.
