Galloway, N.J. - Golfers are encouraged to register now for the Annual Stockton University Golf Classic, to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at the Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, 401 S. New York Road, Galloway, N.J.
Among the tournament’s highlights are a chance to “Beat the Pro,” LPGA Professional Laura Diaz, whose career earnings so far have topped $5.3 million. She joined the LPGA Tour in 1999 and has won two tournament victories and finished in the Top 10 over 55 times.
A new feature this year is the opportunity to have a golf lesson and dinner for $125, with a start time of 4 p.m. sponsored by Bonnie D. Putterman ’85, a Mays Landing attorney, and Michael C. Epps of The Epps Law Firm in Galloway.
Charles Weeks, founder and president of Barrister Wealth Management and an assistant professor of Business Studies and Finance at Stockton, is sponsoring the Million Dollar Hole-in-One Challenge. One lucky golfer will have the chance to make a hole-in-one on a Par 3 for $1 million.
Weeks is sharing co-chair responsibilities with Wendy Bartlett ’93, senior vice president / team leader Fulton Bank of New Jersey.

The event begins at 11 a.m. with registration, lunch and a silent auction, followed by the 1 p.m. shotgun start - scramble format.
