Qualifying: Public Links Championship
ELMSFORD, N.Y. (June 7, 2016) - Qualifying rounds have begun for the 69th MGA Public Links Championship, which will be contested at Spook Rock Golf Course in Suffern, N.Y., on July 7. The championship was first played in 1936, and was developed just a few years after the (now retired) U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. It is now the oldest public links championship in the nation.
Competition is open to male amateur golfers who reside in the MGA territory and do not have playing privileges at a course at which the general public is excluded. Competitors must have a Handicap Index of 8.0 or below. Five qualifying rounds throughout the Met Area will complete the field for the 36-hole championship.
