If you’re looking for olde-worlde charm, look no further than the Roaring Gap Club. The unique Donald Ross designed mountain top layout enjoys far reaching views from the fringe of the escarpment. The golf course itself is rather hilly and a little short by modern standards but you'll need to look very hard to find a layout that is more engaging and fun than Roaring Gap Club. 

 

The championship format is match play with an 18 hole stroke play qualifier (Friday, June 25th) to determine the seeding for match play. The top 64 boys from the stroke play qualifier will advance to match play.  Once a player loses a match they are eliminated from the tournament.  Trophies are awarded to the champion, runner-up, semifinalists, quarterfinalists and the stroke play qualifying medalist.

 

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer ages 8-18 as of June 25, 2021, who has not started college, is a legal resident of North Carolina, is a member in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) and has a current USGA Handicap Index® at a CGA member club that does not exceed 18.3.
