Plainfield Now, a recently formed 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is sponsoring its First Annual Golf Invitational on Monday, September 19 at Twin Brooks Country Club in Watchung.

According to Executive Director Ayisha Mapp, the nonprofit is dedicated to the residents and youth of Plainfield. Proceeds of this first golf outing will allow the addition of a scholarship program for Plainfield High School seniors who will be going on to higher educational opportunities.

The day begins with lunch at 11:00 AM, with Tee Off at Noon sharp. Dinner and awards will take place at 6:00 PM.

Player fees are $350 for an individual golfer and $1,350 for a foursome. Dinner only is $150. A variety of sponsorships are available, from a single hole ($250) to Premier Invitational Sponsor ($7,500).

Nestled at the base of the first ridge of the Watchung Hills, Twin Brooks traces its history to a group of Plainfielders who formed "The Park Club" in 1890. The golf club was an outgrowth of that social club and was incorporated in 1895. See more on the club's history here.
