10th Carolinas Mixed Team Championship Preview
Debbie & Anthony Adams seek their 8th Mixed Team title

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. -- The Carolinas Golf Association’s 10th Carolinas Mixed Team Championship will be played August 22-23 at Pinehurst Resort & CC (No. 1) in Pinehurst, N.C.

Last year, Debbie and Anthony Adams of Asheville, N.C. fired back-to-back subpar rounds of 69 and 66 at The Players Club of St. James Plantation to claim their seventh Mixed Team title by eight shots over Michael and Virginia Mayer of New London, N.C. Team Adams’s seven titles is the most in the championship’s history and this year they will vie for a chance to add one more. The defending champions have the odds in their favor as they try for their eighth title. In the tournament’s nine year history, the Adams' have only lost twice. Debbie is the 7th ranked woman in the Carolinas and was a quarter-finalist in the 2014 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship.

This is the first time Pinehurst No.1 has hosted the Mixed Team Championship, but the course is no stranger to CGA Championships. Course No. 1 served as a site for the Carolinas Father-Son Championship 10 times from 1970 to 1991.

Opened in 1898, Pinehurst Country Club (No. 1) has had many architects on its rise to fame. Dr. Leroy Culver built the first nine and John Dunn Tucker added the second nine, but it is clearly Donald Ross’s touch that you feel on Pinehurst’s first golf course. Ross made revisions in 1913, 1937, 1940, and 1946 shortly before his death. Pinehurst No. 1 is considered his first design. A wild drive or mishit chip can make for a long day and will provide a challenge to Mixed Team Championship participants.

The championship format consists of one round of four-ball stroke play followed by a final round of modified alternate shot. Entry is open to any team comprised of a male amateur and a female amateur golfer who have reached their 13th birthday by August 22, 2015, who are legal residents of North Carolina or South Carolina, are members in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) and have an active GHIN® USGA Handicap Index® at a CGA member club.

The CGA will post any tournament delays or cancellations via our Twitter account.
