            The tournament will be made up of three divisions: Amateur Championship, Mid-Amateur Championship, and Mid-Amateur Open. The Amateur divisions are open to all players and the Mid-Amateur divisions are open to those who are 25 years or older. Those who are eligible for both divisions are allowed to compete in both. Players with handicaps of 7.9 or lower must compete in the Championship Divisions of the Amateur and Mid-Amateur. The three-day low gross score will determine the Amateur Champion and Mid-Amateur Champion.

There will be a few past champions returning to this year’s tournament. Last year’s Amateur and Mid-Amateur Champion, Michelle Butler (Columbia), will be returning to defend her title. In 2019, Butler took first place after a two hole playoff with Madison Derousse (Barnhart). Derousse will be back this year to fight for a first place title.
