|Back Where it All Began |
In the Spring of 1919, a group of area golfers met to draw up the conditions for an Amateur Championship. Each of the four area clubs at that time, Community, Dayton, MacGregor & Miami Valley would qualify 16 players to send to Dayton CC for an 18 Hole Stroke Play Qualifier to determine the 32 player Match Play field.
After all the rounds and matches Vin Hilton won the inaugural Championship Match when he defeated Walter Lamfersick 8 & 7 in the 36 Hole Final played on September 9, 1919.
To celebrate the 100th Anniversary we are returning to where it all began when Dayton CC host what has commonly become know as the Metropolitan Championship.
Play begins this Thursday at 7:30am and will conclude, weather dependent on Sunday Afternoon.

|Take Part in the Metropolitan Contest |
Now in it's eighth year, the contest works by choosing one player from each of the selection groups. The groups are determined by alphabetical order.
At the conclusion of the Metropolitan, your selected players final positions will be totaled. If your selections collectively finish the lowest you will win six (6) dozen personalized Pro-V1's (or any ball of your choosing).
Contestants who are DQ'ed, Withdraw, No Card or No Show will be assigned the next finish number after the 36th or 72nd hole depending on whether they make the cut or not.
PLEASE MAKE YOUR SELECTIONS BY 11:59PM ON WEDNESDAY (July 24th)
Best of Luck to all those who make selections and all those playing in the 100th Anniversary of our Amateur Championship!
