About this tournament

All details that follow are subject to a slight change or adjustment based upon the parks approval and guidelines that may be imposed based upon the pandemic. Field sizes and number of holes could possibly be changed if the park caps the amount of participants we are allowed. We apologize for the inconvenience ahead of time, if in fact we have to make any changes. Until we learn the exact plan we are continuing with the sign up schedule to keep up with the timeline. If any of the changes that possibly happen impact the tournament in such a way that a refund is necessary we will address this on a case by case basis. We appreciate all of our competitors and still hope we are able to give the best experience possible.

Facebook: Lake Russell Open

Location: 2650 Russell State Park Dr, Elberton, GA 30635

2 rounds of 30 holes (1 round per day)
Female Divisions and MA4 will play from temp short pads on 8, 12, 15, & 16.
Original Lake Russell 18 + combination of the woods holes and new holes.
Reminder that the temp holes will still be natural tee pads, more than likely, since we were just informed of their approval this week.

**Good news / Bad news: the park and core approved 6 of the 9 temp holes for permanent installation. However, 3 holes were on a historic site, so we will have to start looking to add 3 more holes to complete the new 18.
