With the state’s current stay at home order in effect through April, The Northern Ohio PGA has decided to reschedule the Michelob Ultra Ohio Senior Open to June 10th and 11th. Applications are now being accepted for the 35th Michelob Ultra Ohio Senior Open. This year’s tournament will once again take place on Firestone Country Club’s renowned West Course, in Akron, Ohio where defending champion Bob Sowards will attempt to defend his title.
The Northern Ohio PGA will continue with 2 divisions, Super Senior Division for players 60 years of age and older & a Main Division for players 50 years of age and older. Super Senior golfers will play from Firestone’s hybrid tees (6,100 yards), which play 500 yards less than the main division’s tees (6,600 yards).
The tournament is open to all Ohio golfers 50 years of age or older as of June 10 with a handicap index limit of 8.0. The tournament entry fee, which covers tournament rounds, cart, lunch and practice range, is $265 for PGA professionals and amateurs, and $310 for non-PGA professionals.
Registration for the 2020 Michelob Ultra Ohio Senior Open closes on June 4 at 5 p.m.
