River Ridge to Host TYGA Tournament of Champions

TYGA Tournament of Champions to be Hosted by River Ridge Golf Club

 
Southern Pines, NC – The Tarheel Youth Golf Association (TYGA) is excited to announce River Ridge Golf Club will host the TYGA Tournament of Champions on August 15-16, 2017.

The 36-hole stroke play event is scheduled to be played on August 15-16. This event is open to the first 84 players who received an invitation by winning their division in a TYGA one day event or TYGA championships. This event will be used for rankings for both TYGA and Junior Golf Scoreboard. The boys’ and girls’ overall champions will receive invitations to the 2017 Joe Cheves Junior.
 
Landscape architect Chuck Smith designed one of the jewels of his career in River Ridge by carving six par-4s and an 18th hole par-5 into the unique landscape created by the ravines and rolling hills of the nearby meandering Neuse River. With arguably some of the most varied terrain and thoughtfully crafted holes in the Triangle, River Ridge is artfully cut from its natural surroundings to create a perfect blend of impeccably maintained course conditions that are in harmony with nature.


Registration closes for The TYGA Tournament of Champions on August 11th at 11:59 pm.
