Spring Brook Country Club
One of three major annual fundraising events for Loyola Jesuit Center.
Your support of this event enables Loyola to provide a refuge, a place of rest and prayer, a place to find guidance and help, healing and direction for thousands upon thousands of people in need. In addition, your support will help Loyola provide retreats for those combating homelessness and addiction and those in recovery and allow Loyola to continue its free will offering policy where no one is ever turned away regardless of financial status.
This year, our tournament will be held at Spring Brook Country Club right here in Morristown, which has a very interesting connection to Loyola Jesuit Center! Spring Brook was originally part of the estate owned by Robert Foote before it was donated to the Society of Jesus in 1927 becoming Loyola House of Retreats. Prior to this, in 1921, Robert Foote sold 160 acres of his property to a group of Morristown businessmen who established Spring Brook Country Club, which opened in 1922.
With the course’s rolling hills and undulating topography, testing greens, and tree lined fairways, each round both tests and rewards players of all skill levels. Designed by golf legend Walter Travis, the course uniquely offers three consecutive par 3’s which surround Armstrong Pond. Known as “The Gauntlet,” these three holes add an unusual and interesting challenge to this magnificent course.
Sponsorships are critical for our success, and we ask for your generosity. Hole sponsorships are offered for $250 and are complemented by sponsor signs posted on tees and greens. They offer vital support and a terrific opportunity for you to make your services known to hundreds of influential members of the Loyola family. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

“We offer our players a unique experience that they’ll always remember and associate with Loyola Jesuit Center and Father Harvey Haberstroh, S.J. who this tournament is named after,” said Renee Owens, Director of the Work, Loyola Jesuit Center. “Fr. Harvey was a man of joy, energy and generosity who became Loyola’s Director in 1960 and spent more than twenty years leading retreats and giving spiritual direction. The atmosphere at our tournament embodies Fr. Harvey’s spirit as participants enjoy golf, fellowship and good food while supporting Loyola’s mission of meeting people where they are in their spiritual lives and providing new pathways for spiritual growth and development.”
