The Northern Ohio PGA is now accepting applications for the 34th Michelob Ultra/1-888-OhioComp Ohio Senior Open
May 29-30 – Firestone Country Club, Akron, OH – West Course –
Main Senior Division for Golfers 50 years of age and older | Super Senior Division for Golfers 60 years of age and older
The Ohio Senior Open is an event steeped with tradition. Current sponsor Tom LaRose (House of LaRose) and Don Padgett II (2018 Super Senior Division Champion & Former Director of Golf and General Manager of Firestone Country Club) brought the Senior Ohio Open to Firestone Country Club in 1996 while Padgett was the Director of Golf. This will be the 22nd year that Firestone will host the prestigious senior state championship with the first event being held in 1996 with only a two year break (2001 & 2002) due to club renovations. This year’s championship will be contested on May 29 & 30 on Firestone’s famed West Course.
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, sponsored by Michelob Ultra & 1-888-OhioComp, is open to all Ohio golfers 50 years of age or older as of May 30 with a handicap index limit of 8.0. The tournament entry fee, which covers tournament rounds, cart, lunch and practice range, is $255 for PGA professionals and amateurs, and $300 for Non-PGA professionals. Registration for the 2019 Michelob Ultra / 1-888-OhioComp Ohio Senior Open closes on May 23 at 11:59 p.m.
