PGA Tour To Keep The Barclays In New Jersey Through 2011

Ridgewood Country Club Will
Host The Barclays In '10
The PGA Tour today announced that Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, and Plainfield Country Club in Edison, New Jersey, will host The Barclays in '10 and '11, respectively. The Barclays, the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs, will be held at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City this year (PGA Tour). In Newark, Brendan Prunty notes The Barclays had been held at Westchester Country Club in New York for 40 years before moving to Ridgewood in '08, and the PGA Tour's agreement calls for it to return to Westchester "at least once by 2012," though there is "no word on whether that will be the case." Ridgewood as part of its new deal with the Tour also is slated to host the tournament from '13-15. PGA Tour players "raved about Ridgewood's layout, design and feel" after the '08 event, and "many stated their desire to make it a regular home" on the FedEx Cup schedule. Plainfield currently has a one-event deal to host The Barclays in '11, but club President Bob McTamaney hopes "that will change" after the event (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 6/24).
