A legend may be born today in Davie County
For the 5th consecutive year Oak Valley Golf Club in Advance is home to the sectional qualifying round for next month’s US Amateur Golf Tournament. Three players from the qualifying rounds at Oak Valley this week will go on to play in the 2010 US Amateur Championship Tournament.
Previous winners of the US Amateur Championship Tournament include Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Bobby Jones, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Lanny Wadkins, Mark O’Meara… you get the idea, the best players in US Golf history.
The winner of the US Amateur Championship receives an automatic invitation to play in the Masters, the US Open and most of the other Major US Tournaments. As you watch these amateur golfers for the next 2 days, imagine seeing them in the Masters and other US Golf Majors over the course of the next year.
Oak Valley Golf Club has been the home to sectional qualifying rounds for the US Amateur for 5 consecutive years and has also been host to sectional qualifying rounds for the US Open! An Arnold Palmer design, the Oak Valley Golf Club is carved beautifully into old dairy farmland and has earned a 4.5 star rating in Golf Digest.
