Round up your budding golfers for a massive event on the green. The Northern Trust tournament event is bringing 125 top players to the course at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City from August 7-11. It’s the first event of the FedExCup, a playoff series that determines the season champ on the PGA Tour. Participating players include Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson and Adam Scott.
New this year are the Family Care Suite, where parents can bring strollers and all other necessities for the squad, and the Kids-Only Viewing Area, where the little ones can watch the pros do their thing with their friends and siblings.
Young fans will have a blast at the autograph zone, where they’ll get trinkets signed by and meet with the pros. They can also spy the driving range and snag a seat in the bleachers to watch them in action, or head to the Kids Viewing Gallery to watch instead. Then, they can explore the PGA Tour Fan Shop, where you can buy keepsakes like giant golf balls and pin flags. The PGA recommends you bring your own Sharpies. While this event is a putter’s dream, there’s tons to do here for non golfers. Kids 18 and under get in free with a ticketed adult. If the kids want to practice their skills, hand ’em a club and hit the expos at The First Round Fan Village to play.
As for what’ll fuel you through the day, look no further than Pete’s Diner, which is complete with a Family Care Suite where you can drop the little ones, golf-themed games and NYC skyline views. You can also get tacos from Tacosita or a Neapolitan slice from Pizza Vita. Stop by Skyline Square for a scoop or two from Torico Ice Cream, too. For a drink, hit The First Round Beer Garden (you can play lawn games there, too!) or the Grey Goose 19th Hole, then visit The First Round Fan Village for more games and activities.
