The PGA Tour returned to Liberty National Golf Club for the Northern Trust tournament, in August. Golf fans were able to watch the best players in the world compete for the first time in two years. Multiple food options and parking locations are provided for this event. With sports gambling now legal in New Jersey, the event possessed an area focused on wagering for the first time in its history.

Public safety apparatus at this event included three Bobcat 2200-4x4 UTVs operated by the Jersey City Fire Department. One vehicle has a flat bed and two sport Firelite Transport Kimtek firefighting skids. They have a pump, 55-gallon water tank and 5-gallon foam cell. Additional equipment includes water, dry chemical and Co2 extinguishers, plus hose.
