On May 3 the Golf Week Senior Amateur Tour will be playing a tournament at Vineyard Golf At White Lake. The Golf Week Senior Amateur Tour promotes the sport of golf by providing stroke play golf tournaments in a fair and friendly competitive environment for senior amateur golfers (age 50+) of all skill levels.
The Golf Week Senior Amateur Tour (SAT) was established by Dennis McCormac in 1999. The popularity of golf among seniors has continued to grow since that time. This season marks the 25th anniversary of the Golf Week Senior Amateur Tour which has 26 Local Tours around the country and hosted more than 350 tournaments in 2022.
From the beginning of January to the end of September, each of the 26 local tours host 10-15 tournaments and home tour members earn points based upon where they finish within each flight (Champ through D). Members may also play in events hosted by other local tours and special regional tournaments to earn points. At the end of the season, the flight leaders in the points standings from each local tour are invited to compete in the Golf Week Senior Amateur Tour National Championship in Hilton Head, SC. The 2023 National Championship is scheduled for October 18th-19th.
The players at Vineyard Golf will tee off at 9:30 a.m.
