New Jersey is getting a new indoor golf facility, located on Route 46 East in Fairfield, that will provide another place for golfers to practice in the winter months.

This indoor golf facility has six hitting bays giving golfers of all levels the ability to work on their game with conditions similar to a driving range range. They can also play storied golf courses from throughout the United States and around the world.

The Clubhouse is the brainchild of a consortium of local golfers and businessmen who have combined finances in the belief that indoor golf will have broad appeal to the golfing public for a variety of reasons.

The LPGA awarded ShopRite with the distinguished Commissioner’s Award during the tour’s recent season-ending Rolex Awards banquet. Fla.

       The PGA of America held its annual meeting commemerating its 100th anniversary in New York City this week. Delegates, Special Committee Members and many other members of the PGA joined for this special event, which was highlighted by an in-depth conversation with legendary half-century PGA Member, Jack Nicklaus.

       Lead by Emmy Award-winning Sports Commentator, Jimmy Roberts, Nicklaus discussed many aspects of his life in golf, including his relationship with long-time golf instructor Jack (Nicklaus frequently referred to him as "Jay" eventhough his actual name was "John") Grout. Nicklaus also discussed the importance of Arnold Palmer in the game, noting that it was Palmer who brought the "blue collar into the game - and that was good." Nicklaus described how he preferred to eat a quiet dinner with wife, Barbara and "maybe another couple, while Arnold preferred to eat in a room of 100 strangers. That was Arnie."
