Seth B. Atwood Crosstown Classic
Saturday, August 8th & Sunday August 9th
The Seth B. Atwood Crosstown Classic was born from creative thinking as a result of a shrinking Ledges Invitational field. Due to scheduling issues that resulted from COVID-19, this event will be played in August of 2020. The event will then move to its official date in 2021 which will be the first full weekend of June.
This unique event will consist of 36 holes of stroke play with the field being flighted after round one. This makes for a fun and enjoyable format for players of all ability levels.
The competition will take place at both Ledges & Atwood with the first round being played at Ledges and the champion being crowned following the second round at Atwood Homestead.
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT. PLEASE CONTACT ATWOOD HOMESTEAD DIRECTLY TO INQUIRE ABOUT REGISTRATION
