It's amazing when a major event comes to your backyard. Living around New York City, that can happen a lot. But being from Northern New Jersey, seeing the Barclays 2010 taking place at the idyllic Ridgewood Country Club in Ridgewood, NJ is quite cool. This is a course that a buddy of mine was a caddie at for well over a decade. Growing up, he would sneak me in to play golf there on the off-days, when there wasn't really anyone at the course on certain summer Mondays. Last year, I got to get in there to see the great finish as well. Like most major courses in the country, it can pop up out of nowhere in sleepy suburbs, cloistered.
For the big tournament, people mostly park at Bergen Community College I believe.
My buddy has some great stories when he would get to spend 9, 18, or 36 holes with some big time folks, pros from baseball, basketball, football, etc.
