The Carolina Am Golf Championship, the metro area’s most prestigious amateur golf tournament, has renewed its partnership with the nationally famous PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship of Greensboro.
Charles Humphreys, Director of the Carolina AM, said, “We are excited and privileged to renew our partnership with the historic Wyndham Championship of Greensboro. This year we will send our top 2 finishers to the pre-qualifier! What an outstanding rare opportunity for 2 local amateur golfers to have a chance to play in a PGA Tour golf tournament. This doesn’t happen often.”
The winner and runner up of the 2011 Carolina AM will receive an automatic berth in the pre-qualifier to be held August 11th at Forest Oaks Country Club, Greensboro, NC. The top 50 from the pre-qualifier will have a chance to qualify for a spot in the Wyndham Championship.*
The Carolina AM is a two day 36 hole stroke play golf tournament for amateurs only. To qualify amateurs must have a 6.3 handicap index or less. The event will be hosted by Verdict Ridge Golf and Country Club, Denver, NC. The date is Saturday July 23rd and Sunday July 24th. The field is limited to the first 100 players.
