HACKENSACK, N.J. – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco, the Board of County Commissioners, the County Parks Department, and the County’s Division of Veteran Services announce that all Bergen County Veterans and active-duty service members can enjoy a free round of golf at any of the County’s six golf courses from Friday, November 10th through Thursday, November 16th.

“While we can never fully repay those who have faithfully served our nation in the Armed Forces, it is our duty to show them our support and appreciation here at home,” said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco. “Offering a free round of golf is an opportunity for the County to express our collective gratitude to those who have served our nation. On behalf of the people of Bergen County, thank you to all our active duty and retired service members. We will never take for granted the sacrifices you and your families have made to protect the freedoms and liberties we all hold dear.”

“Freedom is not free, it is earned through the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform.  As a small token of gratitude the County of Bergen extends it’s heartfelt appreciation by offering free golf this coming week to all veterans and service members," said Bergen County Commissioner Chairman Tom Sullivan.  "This is a humble gesture that reminds us of the unity and support that brings our communities together.”

To enjoy this opportunity, Veterans and active-duty service members must be residents of Bergen County. Active-duty service member and Veteran status will be confirmed upon tee-time check in.

Bergen County has six golf courses which include Darlington Golf Course in Mahwah, Orchard Hills Golf Course in Paramus, Overpeck Golf Course in Teaneck, Rockleigh Golf Course in Rockleigh, Soldier Hill Golf Course in Emerson, and Valley Brook Golf Course in River Vale.
