Forest Hills Golf Club is set to host the 39th annual Augusta City Amateur from July 20-22.
The 54-hole stroke play event is open to anyone age 16 or older and is split into two divisions, the Open Division and the Senior Division (50+).
“It’s one of our flagship events,” Forest Hills general manager, Dan Elliott, said. “We host the two collegiate events and then in the summertime we host the amateur. It’s been happening since 1979. We want it to continue, and we want it to grow. It’s why we’re here.
“Summertime in Augusta gets pretty hot. Some people decide to do other sports, so it gives us an opportunity to showcase our golf course and do something during the summertime.”
The deadline to register is Friday, July 13. To sign up, call the Forest Hills golf shop at 706-733-0001.
