Far Hills, N.J. – Galloway National Golf Club in Galloway, N.J., has been selected by the United States Golf Association as the site of the 2012 USGA Men’s State Team Championship. The dates of the championship are Sept. 19-21. 

Designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 1995, Galloway National Golf Club sits at the junction of pine barrens and coastline in southeastern New Jersey, near Atlantic City. 

“We are thrilled by this selection and look forward to hosting the 2012 championship for the USGA and the 52 teams representing their individual states and districts,” said Mike Killian, Galloway National’s director of golf. “It will be a great opportunity for us to showcase this Tom Fazio masterpiece for some of the very best amateur players in the country and to give back to the game of golf.” 

The course has hosted the 2009 NCAA Division I Men’s East Regional, the 2007 and 2008 Ivy League championships and the 2002, 2006 and 2010 New Jersey State Golf Association Mid-Amateur championships, as well as sectional qualifying for the 2003 USGA Senior Amateur and 2008 U.S. Mid-Amateur and local qualifying for the 2010 U.S. Open. 

The USGA Men’s and Women’s State Team Championships grew out of the celebration of the USGA Centennial in 1995 and have since been held biennially. The championships are open to players from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. State associations may use any criteria of their choosing in selecting their teams, which comprise three amateur, non-college golfers. 

The 2010 USGA Men’s State Team Championship will be played at Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa, Calif., Sept. 14-16.
