Whiteface Open slated for July 13-14

LAKE PLACID — One of the Adirondacks most challenging and scenic golf courses will host the Whiteface Open Championship on July 13-14. The par 71 Whiteface Club and Resort, now in its 115th season, will welcome a field of men and women amateurs and professionals in a variety of age groups, including seniors and super seniors. The senior division is for players 50 to 65 years of age, while the super seniors are for players 66 and older.

Golfweek Magazine recently ranked the layout 12th best in New York State among courses you can play. Also, the readers of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise voted the course “Best in the Mountains” in its annual survey.

The entry fee of $150 ($75 for Whiteface Club members) includes a practice round on July 12 after 1 p.m., 36 holes of stroke play competition and a camp shirt for each competitor. Entry fee includes golf carts for the tournament rounds. Carts may be rented for the practice round.

Several thousand dollars in prizes will be awarded in gross and net divisions for the amateurs, highlighted by free 2014 golf membership for the single low gross score of the tournament (men and women). There will be prizes for both low gross and low net scores, in each division.

The event is officially hosted by PGA Club Professional J. Peter Martin, who has spent the last 36 years at the Whiteface Club, and is a member of the Northeastern New York PGA Hall of Fame.
