ABOUT THE Chanticleer Senior Invitational

The Chanticleer National Senior Invitational started in 2011 with the vision that it would provide a superbly conditioned, very challenging course on which to present a premier invitational tournament for elite senior and super senior golfers recognized for their playing accomplishments on a national and international scale. The limited field is determined from the pool of applicants with preference given to players' performance in national and international events as well as the current rankings. As an integral part of our vision, we provide extraordinary hospitality and great value to both our players and their significant others.

The Senior Division competition will be for players 55-64, as well as other older qualified players who may desire to play in this division. The Super Senior division will be for players 65-70, as well as other older qualified players who prefer to play at Chanticleer. There will be a cut after 36 holes. As an option for Legends, we will host a separate 70+ Legends division at our Riverside course provided we have a minimum number of 16 players. There will NOT be a cut.
