127 players are expected to compete in the 7th edition of the championship. Due to an overwhelming number of entries for this year’s championship, the CGA expanded the field from the original limit of 96 players to accept all entries.

This is the tenth CGA championship hosted by the Country Club of Spartanburg. The 18-hole championship course was built in the tradition of Donald Ross with bent grass greens, and hybrid Bermuda fairways. The golf course was designed with narrow fairways and undulating greens, offering an enjoyable challenge to every caliber of player.

The championship is conducted at 36 holes of stroke play.

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer who has reached his 65th birthday by July 21, 2015, is a legal resident of North Carolina or South Carolina, is a member in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) and has an active GHIN USGA Handicap Index at a CGA member club that does not exceed 15.4.
