Format:
In 2021 we will again have two divisions within The Men’s Tournament; a Tournament Division (6,200 – 6,500 yards) and a Championship Division (6,550 – 6,800 yards).  One change in 2021 is that to play in the Championship Division you must have a 12 handicap or lower. If you have a 12 handicap or lower you can choose to play in the Tournament Division. When registering please select which division you would like to play. The Tournament Division will play from a shorter yardage and will not be eligible to win The 2021 Men’s Spartanburg County Amateur Champions.

Both divisions will be flighted after the second round.
