Saucon Valley CC was selected as the site of the 2014 Mid-Amateur.
Forest Creek Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C., has been selected by the United States Golf Association to host the 2013 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship. The championship will be conducted Oct. 5-10.
The championship will be played on the North and South Courses, both of which were designed by Tom Fazio. The South Course opened in 1996, while the North Course was added in 2005.
This will mark the first USGA championship for Forest Creek, though the club has previously hosted sectional qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Girls’ Junior Championships. In October 2011, the club will host the 66th Captain’s Putter Team Match, a championship conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) that matches 16 male amateurs and eight senior male amateurs from Virginia and West Virginia against a team from North Carolina and South Carolina. In 2012, Forest Creek will host the CGA Senior Amateur Championship.
Additionally, Saucon Valley Country Club, in Bethlehem, Pa., has been selected as the site of the 2014 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship. The dates of the championship are Sept. 6-11.
Saucon Valley’s Old and Weyhill Courses will be used for the 2014 championship, with Weyhill hosting the match-play portion of the competition.
The 2014 Mid-Amateur Championship will be the seventh USGA championship to be hosted by the club and its sixth different championship. The 2009 U.S. Women’s Open was the most recent USGA championship at the club.
