In 1999, Bob Stanger of Durham, N.C. won the first CGA championship hosted by the club; known as Kannapolis Country Club at the time. The club has since hosted three other CGA championships, but this year’s event will be the first since the 2009 N.C. Senior Women’s Championship won by Melissa Sage of Charlotte, N.C.

This year’s event will boast one of the strongest fields in the Championship’s history having four past champions and seven runners-up.

N.C. Mid-Amateur Champions (4): Paul Tucker of Waxhaw, N.C. (2009), Brian Westveer of Charlotte, N.C. (2011), Greg Earnhardt of Greensboro, N.C. (2015, 2016), Matt Kilgo of Charlotte, N.C. (2018).
