Continuing its meteoric rise atop both rankings lists and in the hearts and minds of the golfing public, Forsgate Country Club received two more honors recently.
First, as Pat Norton reported earlier, Paul Kaster, Director of Instruction for the Forsgate Golf Academy and a member of the club’s Teaching Professional staff was recognized by Golf Digest as one of “The Best Teachers by State (2017-2018)” in New Jersey. The magazine’s prestigious rankings of golf instructors were compiled from ballots sent to more than 1,000 instructors in the U.S. who were asked to identify the top teaching talent both nationally and in every state.
“We are very proud of Paul and celebrate his recognition as one of New Jersey’s best teachers by Golf Digest. This is a significant achievement,” said Chris Schiavone, President of RDC Golf Group which owns Forsgate Country Club. “We’re fortunate to have Paul as Forsgate Golf Academy’s Director of Instruction, and we know his many adult and junior students will want to congratulate him on being rewarded for his dedication to helping golfers improve their game.”
Kaster joined the Forsgate staff in 2015 and coaches a large number of junior golfers. Five of his students have earned spots in the US Kids Golf World Championships at the Pinehurst Resort, and he has received honorable mention as one of the Top 50 U.S. Kids Teachers.
Next, on November 11 at 7pm, former White House Chefs Guy Mitchell and Woody Raber will be preparing special meals served to the nine different presidents they served under and regaling everyone with stories. Tickets are only $75.
Home to the legendary Banks Course, Forsgate is an important historical mile marker in golf as the last course designed by the great architectural bloodline of Banks, Seth Raynor, and Charles Blair Macdonald. The club rose steadily in prominence under the stewardship of Schiavone, the architectural design genius of Stephen Kay, and the excellent conditioning from their crackerjack maintenance crew led by Donald Asinski.
