Pine Island CC to host 10th Vicki DiSantis Girls' Championship

PINE ISLAND COUNTRY CLUB TO HOST 10th VICKI DISANTIS GIRLS’ CHAMPIONSHIP ON MAY 2-3, 2015
 
     The Carolinas Golf Association has announced the dates for the 10th Vicki DiSantis Girls’ Championship to honor Mrs. Vicki DiSantis of Pinehurst, NC for her dedication and support of girls’ golf in the Carolinas.  The event will be a 36-hole stroke play tournament for junior girls’ from North Carolina and South Carolina between the ages of 12 – 18 who have not started college.  It will be contested on May 2-3, 2015 at Pine Island CC in Charlotte, NC.
     Inspired by a rolling piece of farmland in the mid-1960s, golf course architect Charles M. Mahannah created Pine Island as a course every golfer would enjoy.  Mr. Mahannah’s vision of a course that requires proficiency, reverence and thought has continued through the years as we continually upgrade, redesign and maintain the course through innovative practices and trendsetting technology. With the latest renovation direction by golf course architect Michael Gleason of Pinehurst, NC the course is one of the finest USGA-regulated courses in the region.  Dramatic, architecturally sound and extremely innovative, this premier private course provides fun and challenging play for golfers of all ages and skill levels.
     An anticipated field of 84 golfers will compete on the Michael Gleason designed course that has hosted the Vicki Disantis Girls’ since 2008, the 2010 NC Junior Boys’ and Girls’ Championships and many other prestigious amateur and professional events.
