ABOUT THE U.S. Senior Challenge

The U.S. Senior Challenge is the nation’s only senior, amateur golf event featuring teams from different states competing against each other usually held in June of each year. Four-man teams representing their respective state, one of which can be 50-54 and at least three need to be 55 & over and much like a collegiate event, has an individual component inside the event.

The tournament is a 54-hole competition. The best three of four scores per hole are counted on the first day of competitive play when teams are paired together, and the best three of four 18-hole rounds are scored during the final two rounds.

A team and an individual champion will be identified along with a Senior and Super Senior Payout.
