The best golfers in the state of Arizona will be competing for the state title during the Amateur Golf Tournament that will be played at The Country Club at DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Aug. 22-27.
In order to qualify, players have to compete throughout the state and the best 144 contestants will be able to participate, according to a press release.
The club is honored that the Arizona Golf Association has chosen The County Club at DC Ranch to host the 92nd Championship. It was the host in 2011 and now again in 2016. The club believes in assisting the allied associations and having select championships when they can in the summer months, the release stated.
Designed by Tom Lehman and John Fought, The Country Club at DC Ranch has spectacular views that frame all 18 holes making the course one of the most prime locations in the entire valley.
The field is comprised of the best male players in the state who understand the magnitude of winning this championship and having their name on the trophy for the rest of time.
Last year Ken Tanigawa of Phoenix finished his run at the 91st Arizona Amateur with a 4-and-2 win over Austin Fletcher.
