The championship is open to the public with no cost for admission and will provide a wonderful opportunity for golf enthusiasts throughout the Lehigh Valley and Northeast region to see elite amateurs up close.

Saturday, Sept. 6 First Round of Stroke Play Old & Weyhill Courses
Sunday, Sept. 7 Second Round of Stroke Play Old & Weyhill Courses
Monday, Sept. 8 First Round of Match Play Old Course
Tuesday, Sept. 9 Second & Third Rounds of Match Play Old Course
