2016

On the clear, cool morning of May 7th over 100 golfers from the produce industry gathered at the beautiful Royce Brook Golf Club in Hillsborough, NJ, for NAPAR’s annual Pete Class Memorial Golf Tournament.  The usual full breakfast was served before the 8:30 shotgun start.

The most popular gift item at sign-in was a logo golf hat dedicated to NAPAR Chairman Emeritus Joe Procacci.  The golfers also received attractive NAPAR logo golf shirts in several colors.

The day was overcast, but play wasn’t interrupted by rain as it was the previous year. The tournament was played in a “shamble” format and was finished in about four-and-a-half hours.  By 1:30, the golfers gathered for lunch, the raffle and awards in the Pavilion, while they waited for the pro shop to confirm the winners.

Golf equipment and pro shop gift certificates, iPads and Kindles, sports watches and, of course, cash were raffled off while the golfers ate and waited for the results.  The grand prize of $3,000 was won by NAPAR Board Member Derrick Jenkins, who immediately gifted it to his son Darius.
