As some of you may have heard, we are making some major changes to our senior golf tournament offerings. After a considerable amount of review and evaluation by our staff, Tournament Committee, and Board of Directors, the CPGA will be retiring the Senior Amateur Program. Going forward, we will create three new senior major championships within the Carolinas. Our goal with these championships will be to make them bigger and more competitive for senior PGA Professionals & amateurs. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide more elite playing opportunities for senior golfers in the Carolinas.
The CPGA is excited to announce that beginning in 2020, the North Carolina Senior Open, South Carolina Senior Open, and Carolinas Senior Open will be introduced to senior professionals and amateurs age 50 and over. Premier facilities will serve host to these annual 36-hole major championships, attracting the top senior golfers in the Carolinas. Senior amateurs residing in North or South Carolina, will compete alongside CPGA senior PGA Professionals in these Open Championships. There will also be a Super Senior division available at each event open to professionals and amateurs age 65 and over.
Highlights of changes to how we run these events are as follows:
We are extremely excited for this next chapter in Carolinas senior golf. Two of the three championships have been scheduled for 2020 as follows:
Greensboro Country Club
CPGA North Carolina
CPGA South Carolina
