The Sun Bowl Association made the official announcement on Friday morning that the Sun Bowl All-America Golf Classic has been canceled for 2020 due to the current Pandemic situation across the country.
The tournament was scheduled for November 22 through 24 at the El Paso Country Club, however, the fall season for college golf has been canceled and the number of COVID cases around the country are back on the rise, so the golf committee made the unfortunate decision of not holding the tournament this year.
“It seems like this is the way things are going all around the country and it’s very unfortunate,” Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas said. “It would be a challenge to bring in golfers who are not currently playing and it would also be a challenge due to different COVID restrictions in different states and different regions.”
“While we are disappointed that we will not host the tournament in 2020, we are looking forward to showcasing El Paso and providing unapparelled hospitality for the best amateur golfers in 2021,” said Gary Hanson, Tournament Chairman.
