Tennessee Course To Host 2005 Mid-Am


The Honors Course, located near Chattanooga, Tenn., has been chosen as the site of the 2005 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship, the United States Golf Association has announced. The championship will be played Sept. 10-15.
The Honors Course, a Pete Dye design known for its natural setting, will host its third USGA championship. Previously, the 1994 Curtis Cup match -- won by Great Britain and Ireland -- and the 1991 U.S. Amateur -- won by Mitch Voges -- were conducted at The Honors Course, which opened in 1983.
The championship will mark the 10th time the USGA has visited the state of Tennessee. 'The Honors Course is very pleased to have been selected as the site of the 2005 U.S. Mid-Amateur,' said club chairman Jack Lupton. 'The Honors Course is dedicated to the promotion of amateur golf.'
Prior to 2005, the U.S. Mid-Amateur will be played at The Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Conn., from Sept. 21-26, 2002; and at Wilmington (Del.) Country Club, from Oct. 11-16, 2003.
