The Cognizant Founders Cup returns May 6th-12th, 2024 to Upper Montclair Country Club in Clifton, New Jersey for the third consecutive year as host of this prestigious event, which pays tribute to the 13 founding members of the LPGA Tour created in 1950.  This will also mark the fourth year with Cognizant serving as the title sponsor since the tournaments transition to northern New Jersey in 2021.

Cognizant, headquartered in Teaneck, New Jersey is one of the leading technological services and consulting companies in the world.  They have been a huge proponent of diversity and inclusion efforts across their company culture and have been leaders of pushing the needle for more equality in women’s sports, offering a $3 million purse, the second largest of any LPGA Tour event outside of the majors and CME Group Tour Championship.

Upper Montclair Country Club is one of only a few country clubs worldwide known to have hosted tournaments for all three professional golf tours, including the LPGA Tour from 1979-1980, 1983-1984, and 2007-2009.  Long considered one of NJ’s premier golf clubs, this legendary A.W. Tillinghast golf course design underwent a major renovation in the 1950s, directed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., transforming Upper Montclair Country Club into its present 27-hole Championship layout.  The acclaimed venue, which has hosted hundreds of the world’s best players over many decades, will challenge defending champion Minjee Lee, along with Lexi Thompson, and an elite field of the best professional women golfers in the world.

As the longest running women’s professional sports organization, the LPGA Tour is committed to sharing in the courage and passion of its 13 founding members. The determination to enhance not only the game of golf, but opportunities for young girls and women is what makes the celebration of the Cognization Founders Cup so special.

We hope you join us at Upper Montclair Country Club this May!
