The Junior Open has always received regional attention but recently the AJGA recognized the event as a top multiple day tournament in the metropolitan area, rewarding the winning boy with a performance-based exemption star.

The 2013 Players of the Year include John Pak, Scotch Plains (Boys 11-15), Nicholas Rencis, Long Valley (Boys 16-18) and Christina Parsells, Bernardsville (Girls 16-8) and Ami Gianchandani, Short Hills (Girls 16-18),

Past Junior Open winners include Rutgers University Men’s Golf Team member, Jacob Stockl of Clark, Peddie Prep player, Curren Mody of Monmouth Junction, one of the top high school players in the state and 2011 and 2012 Girls First Team All State Honoree, Emily Mills of Farmingdale.
