SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit 2016 Liberty Open Golf Championship will take place September 10, beginning at 10 a.m., at the Summit Municipal Golf Course. The top 15 lowest scores collected between July 18 and September 5 will earn a spot to compete in the 2016 event.

The 2015 Liberty Open Champion, Tyler Walk of Summit, will return to compete for a chance to win a second-consecutive title. All sixteen competitors will play two rounds of golf in order to determine the champion. In the event of a tied score, a sudden-death playoff beginning from the first hole will determine the champion.

'Muni' members must sign up with the Pro Shop Attendant in the Muni gatehouse and pay greens fees in order to be eligible to compete. Competitors must play with at least one other person in order to have score cards verified. Low scores will be posted in the gatehouse every Monday morning. If scores are tied, the score that was posted first will be accepted. Rules for the 2016 Liberty Open are posted at

The Summit Municipal Golf Course is a 9-hole, par-3 layout open to both residents and non-residents.
