Cedarwood was designed by Ellis Maples, famed for his work at Grandfather Mountain and the Country Club of North Carolina at Pinehurst. The course stretches out to almost 7,000 yards from the Black Tees, and wanders over rolling terrain dotted with hardwoods, cedars, and lovely ponds. The fairways are lush Bermuda, the greens are TifEagle Ultradwarf Bermuda grass. Like any great course, it gives players risk-reward choices throughout the round. This characteristic makes the course pleasurable and challenging to golfers of all ages and abilities levels.

The TYGA Metro Junior is 36-holes of individual stroke play. Entry is open to any female and male amateur golfer ages 12-18 who has not started college and has an active USGA GHIN handicap. Scoring will be provided by the TYGA throughout the championship, offering 9 and 18-hole updates. Live updates will also be available on the TYGA’s official Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts @TYGAgolf.
