This is a community event conducted for the golfing community. There has not been a similar event since the early 2000’s when Ungar conducted the Lowndes County Amateur at Kinderlou. With four golf courses within 15 minutes of each other with at least 100 members Ungar’ goal for the 2019 Cup is 400 players. This can be easily accomplished by, golf courses working together and supporting the event and host course and golfers committing to an event for them. It’s a community event supporting the game of golf and there is something in it for everyone.
Sponsorship will be greatly appreciated by contacting Georgia Amateur Golf Promotions or John Ungar at 614-441-3965 e-mail email@example.com All questions should be directed to the GAGP and not local golf courses.
