The Cardinal Amateur
ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
The Cardinal Amateur, presented by McConnell Golf, is held at the Sedgefield Country Club, Pete Dye Course in Greensboro, NC. (Our name was changed from Cardinal Golf and Country Club in 2013 when we officially became a part of Sedgefield Country Club). Numerous former competitors are now on the PGA, Champions and Web.com tours. The field consists of 78 contestants, chosen among college level and mid-amateurs. Jay Sigel, a winner on the senior tour, has been quoted as saying that the Cardinal Am is one of the finest amateur tournaments in the country and one which he wishes he had won during his amateur career.
The Cardinal Amateur established a scholarship fund in 1983. The Thomas and Bettie O’Briant Memorial Scholarship Fund has provided financial assistance to at least 36 young people through four years of college. The scholars, drawn from the Guilford County area, are selected primarily on the basis of need.
