The Spring 2019 National Invitational will be played at The Trophy Club just outside Indianapolis!
The Spring 2019 National Invitational will bring regional champions and other qualifying teams to Indiana to compete for a spot in the Fall 2019 National Championship. The Trophy Club, located just outside Indianapolis, will host the Invitational on their 250 acre links-style course. The course came highly recommended from players in the Indiana Region and from other club pros in the area. It will present an excellent test for club golfers traveling from across the country.
The National Invitational is a 2-day, 36-hole stroke play event. The University of Nebraska won the tournament last semester in Myrtle Beach, and qualified for the Spring 2019 National Championship at the Birck Boilermaker Complex’s Kampen and Ackerman-Allen courses. Players in both the National Championship and National Invitational will be staying in the new DoubleTree hotel in Lafayette.
7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Tournament participants are able to schedule practice rounds the week leading up to the Invitational at a special participant rate. Teams and individuals are recommended to book practice rounds ASAP!
