Officials with the Sun Country Amateur Golf Association announced Tuesday that they will be teeing off the 2020 competitive golf season right here in the Borderland.
SCAGA officials said their most prestigious event, the New Mexico – West Texas Amateur Championship. will be held June 12-14, 2020 at Horizon Golf Club in Horizon City, just outside of El Paso.
“The 44th annual event will be heading down south to El Paso this year which will bring in plenty of new players who do not typically travel up to the northern part of the region,” SCAGA officials shared. “The event has players traveling in from around the region as they try to scratch their competitive itch while many state and regional golf associations are yet to hold any championship.”
“Many of the best players from New Mexico and West Texas will be battling to identify the top amateur player in the Sun Country,” officials added.
The coveted tournament title features some great past winners such as Tommy Armour III, Bart Bryant, Rich Beem, D.J. Brigman and others, who have since won more than $30 million on professional tours.
Tee times start at 8:00am each day of the Championship with the leaders going out in the final groups on Saturday and Sunday.
