ABOUT THE The Dogwood Invitational

The first Dogwood Invitational, held in April 1941, validated Druid Hills Golf Club as a challenging venue for amateur golf tournaments. The Club has hosted eight Georgia State Amateur Championships over the years, and the tournament continues as a staple on the major amateur golf circuit. The Dogwood was discontinued in 1973 and did not return until 1994 when a new tournament format was introduced. The new format included entrance into the tournament by invitation only and added an 18-hole qualifier for five to eight open spots prior to the tournament start. A Senior Division was added in 2005.Participation in The Dogwood Invitational is by invitation from the Dogwood Tournament Committee. The tournament is 72 holes of stroke play with a 54 hole cut to low 40 and ties for final round. Players are required to walk during tournament play and may carry their golf bag themselves or take a caddie. 8-spot Qualifier is held Monday of tournament week, prior to the event.
