FRANKLIN - The Tennessee Golf Association is excited to announce its championship schedule for the 2022 season.
A strong line-up of courses is on tap to host events next year, including one facility that the TGA has never visited before in Henry Horton Golf Course.
“As the holidays near, the TGA is starting to turn our focus toward a new season,” said Allison Brown, who was named the TGA’s new executive director earlier this month.
“We are excited about the outstanding courses that have graciously agreed to host tournaments in 2022. We will be hosting events all the way from the Tri-Cities to Memphis, and we hope to see many new and familiar faces alike playing in state championships.”
The 73rd Tennessee State Open will be held at Council Fire, June 7-9, with eligible professionals competing for the $10,000 top prize. The state’s premier event is also open to amateur golfers who have an established handicap at a TGA member club.
The Tennessee Amateur Championship is slated for Aug. 2-5 at Cherokee Country Club in Knoxville. Cherokee last hosted the Tennessee Amateur in 2012, won by the legendary Tim Jackson.
The Tennessee Women’s Amateur will be held on the other side of the state as Chickasaw Country Club will welcome the top female golfers June 21-23. Chickasaw has hosted the Women’s Amateur on two other occasions, in 1953 and 1973. They were won by Marnie Polk and Betty Probasco, respectively.
