The New Year’s Invitational has recognized the lowest scoring senior player since 1983. The format has changed several times over the intervening years, culminating in a Senior Division, as presently constituted, in 2009. Many players with fine amateur records have won our senior championship, including 2022 champion Mike Barkley, who won with a score of 1-under par 215.
The minimum age to play in the Senior Division is 55. Senior entrants must have a USGA handicap index of 7.0 or less. This year we will a have a field of 112 players, the Senior Division will be limited to 16. Seniors will play from the middle(white) tees.
The entry fee of $445 includes 3 tournament rounds, January 5-7, and practice round Wednesday, January 4th. Arrangements for an alternate practice round date may be made by contacting our pro shop at 727-864-1595. Buffet breakfasts and after-round refreshments will be provided each day
The senior champion will receive a crystal award. He and the next 4 senior finishers will receive merchandise prizes. These will be awarded Saturday following completion of play.
