Thanks to everyone and all our host courses for a great 2020 season amidst the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic!  We saw record participation, a lot of new players, and some excellent scoring.  Look forward to hopefully a more “normal” 2021 – we’ll be working on the schedule this fall and winter and update the site and Facebook page with any news.  Historical Tournament Results and All-Region Teams are linked below.

Congratulations to Cameron Lippoldt on winning the 2020 Kent County Amateur with a 54-hole total of 202!  Kaufman Golf Course was a great host yet again despite having to convert hole #s 1 & 10 to par 3s (Par 70) in Round 1 and #10 still for Rounds 2 & 3 (Par 71).  The course was in great shape otherwise and we had a very competitive event!  Full results are linked below and golf shop gift certificates are available at Kaufman for anyone making the final cut.
