THE CDGA AND USGA will work together to host a qualifier for the 2018 U.S. Amateur Championship, to be contested at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in August of next year. The second course for the championship will be Spyglass, also a part of the Pebble Beach Golf Resort.
A qualifier for the U.S. amateur, will be the first USGA event brought to the Preserve at Oak Meadows in Addison.
July 9th will be the date for the qualifier at the Preserve.
The field for that day will be set after the deadline for entries has passed, and the number of playing spots on the line in the amateur field that day, will be determined at that time as well.
It’s expected that many local players will use the Preserve site to try and qualify for the championship. More details to follow on the Preserve qualifier as the date gets closer, and or the USGA or CDGA releases further information.Follow updates at USGA.org and CDGA.org.
