Host Site: Teugega Country Club

2018 Champions: Nicholas & Madison Braman (Amateur) and Kevin & Lisa Webb (Senior)

Format: 18 holes of modified chapman stroke play (gross and net). Two players play as partners, each partner plays from the teeing ground and plays the partner's ball for the second shot. After the second shot, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and play that ball alternately to complete the hole. This format is modified on par-3s, so that the decision as to which ball to play alternately must be made after the tee shot.

Teugega Country Club

Teugega Country Club, located in Rome, was founded in February 1899 by Franklin Ethridge. Ethridge, known as “the father of golf”, brought together 125 townsmen to create the first ever golf course in the city. Eugene Rowland nominated the name "Te-uge-ga", referenced in the 1851 Annals of Oneida County as the local Indian's designation for the Mohawk River. The original course was built on very poor ground for golfing. If Teugega was to grow, a new course would have to be built elsewhere. Donald Ross was hired by Teugega to design a new 18-hole course six miles north at Lake Delta.
