Our 18-hole championship golf course reflects the detailed expertise of 1992 US Open Champion, Tom Kite, and renowned golf course architect, Bob Cupp, who collaborated on the design. Liberty National’s Kite & Cupp Parkland Links-style layout is dramatic yet traditional, taking into consideration the site’s cultural heritage, aesthetic principles and elements of light and shade. Golfers enjoy magnificent views of the Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor, Manhattan Skyline and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
By hosting PGA Tour events twice – and with more tournaments on the horizon – Liberty has not only brought prestige to New Jersey, but also revenue and a sense of community. Liberty has helped New Jersey stand shoulder to shoulder with its neighboring states as a hub of business and culture while providing a connection to this land’s unique history. On the shore of freedom lies a path to our nation’s humble beginnings, and where immigrants first gazed upon a beautiful statue and dared to dream.
In addition to Seton Hall and Georgetown, the estate included 10 other schools: Boston College, Campbell, Columbia, Duke, Loyola (MD), Miami (OH), Michigan, Penn State, Princeton, and Yale.
Seton Hall will finish the game this fall with three rounds of golf at the Daniel Island Invitational, Oct. 30-Nov. 1, at Ralston Creek Course in Daniel Island, SC
