The City Championship will be open to more golfers when the tournament’s 94th edition is played Aug. 3-10 at Cascades Golf Course. In addition to all Jackson County residents being eligible, the Jackson Golf Committee announced that the tournament will for the first time be open to golfers who are not Jackson County residents. Those living outside the county can enter if they meet one of three criteria: They graduated from a Jackson County high school or college; previously played in a Jackson Masters or City Championship; or are employed in the county. In addition, there is no longer a handicap limit.
The qualifying round will be played Aug. 3 to set the 32-player match play field, with match play beginning Aug. 4 leading to the 36-hole championship match Aug. 10. Entry fee is $75, or $30 for high school students. Those who do not qualify for match play will receive an additional 18-hole round to be played any time before the end of the year. Entry forms are available at the Country Club of Jackson, Cascades, Sharp Park, and Arbor Hills pro shops, and registration can be made on-line at jacksongolf.net. Entry deadline is July 31 at 5 p.m. For more information, contact Dave Gilpin at 688-4046.
