Quarry Oaks Golf Course is set to host the 2019 Nott Autocorp Men’s Amateur Championship. 2018 champion Justin McDonald of Breezy Beed Country Club is in the field of 80+ players who will tee it up July 15-18.
All four rounds of the championship will be contested on the Desert-Quarry rotation of the 27-hole facility. According to Head PGA of Canada Golf Professional Darren Hayden, the two courses are very different in look and playability. The Desert is a target based course that puts a premium on accuracy and shot placement. The Quarry nine includes plenty of tree-lined holes and penalty areas that will test the player’s ability to commit to shot execution. Both nines offer an opportunity to play some holes aggressively but at the risk of taking high numbers. Weather conditions are also known to shift quickly during the round which will also test both the patience and endurance of the field.
Hayden also commented that that course is in excellent condition. The greens have been rolling well and have been receptive all year long and the fairways are giving up some roll which will help to soften the 6,641 yard layout. The turning point of the championship could come on the Quarry nine that features the unique island green 6th hole, that will play the 15th hole in the championship. The 167 par-3 island green will put a huge premium on club selection and yardage control.
Hayden said the course set up will be challenging, but fair with daily conditions dictating hole and tee placements.
