We are thrilled to officially share with the membership and the community that Charlotte Country Club was chosen by the United States Golf Association (USGA) as the host site for the 2018 U.S. Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship, being held September 22-27, 2018. CCC is no stranger to hosting USGA events, as this will be the fourth national championship held at our beautiful club.
“Charlotte Country Club has supported amateur golf for more than a century and the USGA is pleased to bring the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship to the club for the first time,” said Diana Murphy, USGA vice president and Championship Committee chairman. “We know the course will thoroughly challenge the players’ skills as they compete for the Robert T. Jones Jr. Memorial Trophy.”
CCC has a storied amateur championship history, having also hosted eight Carolinas Amateurs, four Carolinas Women’s Amateurs, two Southern Amateurs, five Charlotte City Amateur Finals, and several state and Carolinas Golf Association junior amateurs. The past USGA Championships have included the 1972 U.S. Amateur, the 2000 U.S. Senior Amateur, and most recently, the 2010 U.S. Women’s Amateur, which was the highest rated USGA championship of that year.
“Charlotte Country Club is truly honored to host the 2018 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship,” said Damon DiOrio, the club’s chief executive officer. “Since 1910, our club has been deeply dedicated to providing a championship-caliber golf experience for players of all ages. Our membership, staff, and the Charlotte community look forward to hosting a memorable and meaningful championship.”
Carolina Golf Club will serve as the stroke-play co-host course, and partner for the qualifying rounds of the 2018 U.S. Mid-Amateur.
