2019 KPGA Tournament Registration Now Open

           Golf House Kentucky is excited to announce that registration for 2019 Kentucky PGA tournaments is now open. After a highly competitive 2018 season filled with exciting finishes, 2019 promises to be a great season for the Kentucky PGA Section Members and Associates.

            Kentucky’s oldest open championship, the Kentucky Open, will celebrate its centennial anniversary on July 29-August 1 when Kearney Hill Golf Links hosts the 100th edition of this storied event, and most recently hosted the Kentucky PGA Professional Championship, won by Andrew Stephens last fall. The Pete Dye design in Lexington has become a statewide favorite and is a fitting venue for the event. Trey Shirley will defend his title against a strong field of amateurs and professional golfers from across the state.

            Frankfort Country Club will host Kentucky’s premier women’s championship on August 6-7 with the 23rd Kentucky Women’s Open. Last year, Lauren Hartlage was victorious in a playoff over Olivia Cason, both of whom are on the University of Louisville Cardinals’ women’s golf roster. Hartlage, Cason and their Louisville teammates will seek a similar story this year at the historic Frankfort site that was first opened in 1913. Shaping the ball both directions and negotiating the tight fairways will be at a premium for those who look to contend for the title.

            On August 19-20, the Section’s PGA Professionals will be at the center of the stage for the 68th Kentucky PGA Professional Championship at Indian Hills Country Club. Andrew Stephens took the title last year and will look to go back to back this year in this professionals-only event. One of the top golf courses in Southern Kentucky, Indian Hills Country Club will require players to negotiate deep bunkers, several ponds and slick greens to prevail.

            Houston Oaks Golf Course will host the strongest senior championship in Kentucky on August 12-13 when the Kentucky Senior Open comes to the pristine Paris venue. The rolling terrain and many doglegs of one of Kentucky’s hidden gems will challenge all competitors. It will be Barry Bonifield gunning for two straight Kentucky Senior Opens, following a three-hole playoff victory in last year’s edition against Buddy Bryant.
