2013 Recap

golf ball and tee Nearly 140 golfers and supporters turned out on Monday, September 16, for the Inaugural Red Hawk Open. The event, which took place at the Rock Spring Club in West Orange, NJ, benefited Montclair State University Athletic teams and programs.

The day started with lunch, and the weather cooperated to give the golfers a great day on the course. After hitting the links, golfers and guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails, dinner and a silent auction.

NCAA All-American, Heather Gearity, spoke on behalf of student athletes.
