The Ridgewood Country Club, in Paramus, N.J., has been selected by the United States Golf Association (USGA) as the host site for the 2016 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship. The fourth USGA championship to be held at Ridgewood is scheduled for July 18-23, 2016.

“We are thrilled to announce Ridgewood Country Club as the host site of the 2016 U.S. Girls’ Junior and sincerely appreciate the club’s generosity in opening its long-celebrated facilities to this generation of female players,” said Diana Murphy, USGA vice president and Championship Committee chairman. “This historic club will surely provide an excellent stage for the world’s most talented teenage female golfers and an extraordinary experience for all.”

Located less than 30 miles northwest of New York City, Ridgewood’s three 9-hole courses – East, Center and West – were designed by A.W. Tillinghast and opened for play in 1929. The course routing for the Girls’ Junior will incorporate holes from all three nines.

Arcola Country Club made a memorable debut in the 2015 Red Hoffman Cup Finals,  cruising to a solid four-shot win over defending champ Black Oak Golf Club and two-time HCM winner Baltusrol Golf Club, while coming in seven strokes clear of Plainfield Country Club.

Arcola’s 209 total featured a splendid 68 by Al Costello / Trevor Randolph, played on a beautifully prepared but surprisingly feisty par-70 Morris County Golf Club track.

The HCM Finals follow a four-ball, medal play format among the four clubs left standing of the 32 that started match play in late April.

Before tee time, everyone seemed to expect a tight medal competition.  Arcola added some excellent new players in the offseason. Black Oak was itching for a HCM three-peat. And Baltusrol had clearly pulled together quite likely its strongest team ever.

The possibility of a tie loomed large when the first four scores turned in were three 70s and a 71.  But Arcola’s depth was the difference that helped them pull away...

27-year-old Anna Nordqvist birdied the 16th and 17th holes wining the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer by a stroke. She closed with a 2-under 69 in windy conditions to finish at 8-under 205 at Stockton Seaview's Bay Course.

The former Arizona State player now has five career LPGA Tour titles, winning twice each in 2009 and 2014. 

Anna's mother, Maria, was with her during the tournament, celebrating the Swedish "Mother's Day" on Sunday with her daughter.

"It's the first time I've won on the LPGA Tour and one of my family members were there with me, so it's definitely special," Nordqvist said. "It's Mother's Day in Sweden, so I couldn't have given her a better present than to spend the day with her.

"I'm just speechless right now. I fought hard today and I can't believe I'm sitting here with the trophy."

A stroke behind leader Morgan Pressel entering the round, Nordqvist made her move on the closing three holes — a stretch she played in 5 under the first two days.
