The field for the 2016 championship is expected to consist of 117 players. Exempt players were automatically accepted into the championship while others were required to qualify for the tournament through one of five 18-hole qualifiers.

In last year's championship at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh, N.C., Sherrill Britt of West End, N.C. edged Tee Opperman of Pawley's Island, S.C. and Chris Mitchell of Prosperity, S.C. by one shot to capture his first CGA championship.
