Perhaps it’s the location and the fact that it’s smack-dab in the center of the country. Or, maybe the Golden Tee masses just really like St. Louis this time of year. Regardless, this is the tournament you want to see, as the best players in the world flock to this even each and every year.
It makes for one heck of a show and a memorable GT weekend.
This year’s tournament will take place at Redbirds Sports Cafe & Billliards in Hazelwood, MO—the location for last year’s weekend—on April 18 through April 21.
On Thursday, April 18, the players who make their way into town early will be treated to a Closest-to-the-Pin Contest that evening. On Friday night, the Handicap Tournament will take place. This event—which has picked up a ton of steam in recent events—gives everyone a shot at winning tournament entry into the main event with a level playing field.
If you’ve never played, trust me you will not want to miss it.
The weekend’s main event will get underway on Saturday morning with a five-course qualifier. Entry into this event is $100 and there is also the option of the $20 hole-in-one side pot. The top 32 qualifiers will move into the main bracket, while everyone else will be placed into the purple bracket.
On Sunday, match play will begin and a champion will be crowned early on Sunday evening.
This is already shaping up to be perhaps the biggest tournament field of the year, a theme that has held true in recent memory. If you can’t make it, Power Events will still be streaming the biggest tournament matches live, and we will pass along the necessary links once it’s time.
While watching it online is wonderful, it’s just not the same. This is the event you want to attend, whether you’ve done the tournament circuit before or you’re thinking about checking out your first.
We’ll be there to cover the festivities, and we hope to see you there as well. Much more to come on this year’s Missouri Open.
