Sara Bay Country Club is hosting the 2019 Mid-Amateur Stroke Play Championship. Players 25 years and older will compete in a Championship environment without having to compete with juniors and collegiate players. Sara Bay Country Club is a beautifully designed Donald Ross course, with greens that closely mirror the greens of Pinehurst No.2. Sara Bay has always been seen as one of the best manicured courses in the state, and continues to preserve the course as Ross left it.
