The dates are set for the 2016 FLAGSTICK OPEN. Registration also opens May 6th.
The highly-respected 2-day, 36-hole amateur event will once again be contested at the eQuinelle Golf Club in Kemptville, Ontario. This year a full field of competitors is being welcomed on July 16/17 to the 7,000-yard Darrell Huxham Design regarded as among the best in Eastern Ontario available for public play.
Formerly a part of the BMG Cup Series, THE FLAGSTICK OPEN will now stand alone as the key tournament event operated and supported by the Bauder Media Group, the publishers of Flagstick Golf Magazine, Flagstick.com, Ontario Golf News Digest, and Ontario Golf News.
“We have enjoyed having the series for the past number of years but it was time to put the focus on a single event,” says Bauder Media Group President Jeff Bauder, who also acts as the Tournament Director. “We want to put on the best event possible for the serious amateur golfers who enjoy competition and we are happy to be able to present this event once again as a way of supporting the competitive golf community.”
In the three previous FLAGSTICK OPEN events, starting in 2013, there have been very fine champions crowned. In 2015 Dwight Reinhart, a two-time Quebec Mid-Amateur Champion prevailed in a playoff over Noah Steele, currently the top ranked Canadian in the American Junior Golf Association rankings. Other past champions have included former OVGA Mid-Amateur Champion Rob Knights and 8-time Ottawa City & District Champion, Allen McGee.
A field of equal quality is expected in 2016 as players contend in A, B, C, and Senior Divisions. The number of players will be capped at 144.
“We appreciate the support of the players and look forward to providing them with another quality tournament experience at this year’s FLAGSTICK OPEN. I encourage players to get signed up quickly as spots will be going fast,” concluded Bauder.
