Enjoy a day of golf and good spirited competition while supporting a wonderful cause. Please join us for 27 outstanding holes of golf; 9 holes on the Hickory Course (the only USGA-rated par 3 course in the USA), and 18 holes on the traditional Highlands Course. Proceeds from the GSB Classic, which have totaled over $1,000,000 since 2005, support the endowment for need-based financial aid at Gill St. Bernard's.

This year, we are honored and humbled to have the proceeds benefit the Brian Kramer Memorial Scholarship Fund. Brian, a GSB parent to Samantha '16 and Drew '20, passed away on December 26, 2018, following a battle with HLH. Brian was a smiling and talented golfer who served on the golf committee for many years and joyfully joined us at each tournament. Brian's passion for golf not only included collegiate accolades, but also various club championships as well as participation in Metropolitan Golf Association and NJSGA events, which earned him a trip to the U.S. Mid-Amateur in 2007.
 
Brian was an exemplary example of the core values of Gill St. Bernard's School to everyone who knew him showing courage, integrity, respect, compassion and excellence in all his relationships and will be keenly missed. We are hopeful that you will be able to participate as a sponsor or golfer in his memory.

Read Last Year's Story

More than 75 golfers turned out for the 13th annual GSB Classic. Amid beautiful weather, the players shot 27 holes (nine on the championship par-three Hickory course and 18 on the traditional Highlands). Among the 27 holes, 13 offered chances to win a new car with a hole-in-one. The hole-in-one challenge was once again sponsored by Tom Maoli’s, P '16, '20, family of dealerships.
 
Although no one managed a hole-in-one this year, John de Grandpre P '20 and Kevin Giordano P '14, '19 took the honors for closest to the pin. Other highlights included first place (low gross) for Scott Barbrack's P '25 foursome and first place (low net) for the foursome from Linde-Griffith Construction.
 
A full day on the course was followed by dinner in the clubhouse and awards. During that time, the winners of the GSB Classic raffle were pulled, with Greg Niccolai P '16 winning the Jerry Seinfeld tickets and Julie Bliss Chan P '22 '20 taking home tickets to Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen.
 
A special thanks to all of our golfers who came out yesterday to support Gill St. Bernard's and help make the event a success. All proceeds from the tournament benefit the endowment for need-based financial aid.
