One of the oldest amateur competitions in the Midwest, the CDGA Amateur Championship was first played in 1914 at Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood. Golf great Charles “Chick” Evans, Jr. won the tournament that year. The Championship is open to any CDGA member with a Handicap Index of 5.4 or under. The entire field competes in a 36-hole one-day qualifier, with the top 16 advancing to match play. Andrew Price bested Todd Mitchell in the 2016 final match at Calumet Country Club.
