About this tournament

The 2018 High Plains Challenge will be the end of an Era of this tournament but, the beginning of another that we hope will make this event more special then the past events. This will be the last year for camping being available in Riverside Park for those that have enjoyed that in the past years.
So into the future with new added features.

This year we will have our normal courses the Optimist and Pessimist Courses set up in the usual HPC settings. We will be adding the Quail Dunes Golf Course as the third course this year.

This years entry fees will include facilities fees for 1 competition round and 1 practice round on the new temp course. this fee will cover incidental expenses for the tournament and property owner fees. total facility fees will be $40 that is included into the entry fee. Amateur divisions will be true amateur format.

The HPC 2018 is again proud to be a USDGC qualifier with 5 spots available for invitations to play in the 2018 USDGC.
