The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is privileged to host The 12th Annual Gray Cup Invitational Golf Classic named in honor of Gray Rogers for his many years of outstanding service. Your participation in this annual event helps us fulfill our mission to preserve and protect New Jersey’s critical land and vital water resources.
Gray served for ten years on The Land Conservancy’s board of trustees, including three years as chairman. During his tenure, Gray had a remarkable impact on the organization. He chaired the Preserve Now–Protect Forever Capital Campaign, which raised more than $3 million. Under his leadership, The Land Conservancy grew from a regional land trust to a state leader in open space preservation. Gray was a founder of the investment management firm W.P. Stewart & Co. Inc. in New York City. He always had a passion for the outdoors and the natural world. Dedicated conservationists and longtime supporters, Gray and his wife Mollie established The Land Conservancy’s Rogers Family Scholarship in 2006 to provide scholarships to deserving college students from New Jersey pursuing careers in an environmental field. Since then, 30 scholarships totaling $150,000 have been awarded!
Hamilton Farms Golf Club
The Highlands course, at more than seven thousand yards, is a championship layout that provides appropriate challenges to the skilled golfer. Among its most distinctive features are sculpted bunkers with high sand flashing, recreating the older, dramatic style of bunkering. Strategy is at a premium on holes such as Number Fourteen, “Long Look,” a 545-yard classic risk-reward par 5. “If the carry over the greenside bunkers is too much for you,” says course architect Dana Fry, “you can lay up on your second shot out to the left.” Learn more about Hamilton Farms here.
