​New Jersey PGA Expands Partnership with CLUB CAR & Vic Gerard Golf Cars

BEDMINSTER, N.J. (January 19th, 2024) – The New Jersey Section, PGA of America (NJPGA) is excited to announce its expanded partnership with VIC GERARD GOLF CARS and CLUB CAR, who continue to deliver an exceptional golf course experience. The agreement comes on the heels of an ownership change at Vic Gerard Golf Cars. The new ownership group is proud to not only continue supporting the New Jersey Section and their PGA of America Golf Professionals and the PGA Recognized Facilities throughout the territory, but also expand on the events they support.

​As part of this agreement, CLUB CAR will serve as the Presenting Sponsor for several events throughout the year, headlined by The Charity Clambake. The Clambake continues to be a premier event which pairs one PGA of America Professional with one Amateur partner in a team event modeled after the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. Annually conducted at one of the top venues in the Section, the 2024 event will be held at the Hollywood Golf Club from May 20th – 22nd. In addition to the Charity Clambake, CLUB CAR will also serve as the Presenting Sponsor of the Head Professional Championship which welcomes all PGA Professionals classified as Head Professional, Director of Golf, or General Manager and will be played at the Manasquan River Golf Club on June 10th.

“The Charity Clambake is a highlight for participating PGA Professionals and their amateur guests,” said NJPGA Executive Director Chris Bauer. “The addition of Vic Gerard Golf Cars and Club Car as a presenting sponsor for this event will enable us to elevate the experience for all players and highlight the brands support to the important group of stakeholders who participate in this event.”

“Vic Gerard Golf Cars and CLUB CAR are excited to increase our support of the NJPGA and PGA Professionals through this partnership. Having been a participant in the Charity Clambake for over 20 years, it was important to support this Section Major Championship at such a premier venue,” said Golf & Turf Fleet Sales Professional, Vince Giunco, PGA. “We are also excited to be involved with the Head Professional Championship at my home course, Manasquan River, the NJPGA Open Stroke Play event being held at Crestmont Country Club, and to continue our support of the NJPGA Pro-Assistant Pro Championship. We are looking forward to the 2024 NJPGA season.”

Liz Martino, General Manager, joined Vic Gerard Golf Cars in September 2006 as part of the sales and service team. Over the years she has been involved in every facet of the company. Most clubs are familiar with her through our tournament fleet program, sales, and service. Says Liz, “I am excited to partner with NJPGA, promote our high-quality product and mostly see everyone at these events. I look forward to continuing our relationship with all our fantastic customers as well as meeting potential new customers.”
