2022 CDGA CHAMPIONSHIP REGISTRATION NOW OPEN 
 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - LEMONT, Ill. - Those looking to enhance their golf participation by experiencing the excitement, challenge and camaraderie of high-level amateur golf competition can do so by signing up for a 2022 CDGA Championship. Registration is open on CDGA.org as of Tuesday morning.

The CDGA`s 109th year of running championship golf features eight gross championships and numerous associated qualifiers. The slate is highlighted by the 91st Illinois State Amateur Championship, July 19-21 at Westmoreland Country Club in Wilmette, and the 102nd CDGA Amateur Championship, June 27-30 at Glen Flora Country Club in Waukegan.

The other six championships consist of two catered to mid-amateur players (age 25 and up), three specific to seniors (age 55 and up) and one Four-Ball event open to all ages. Any individual with an official USGA Handicap Index® of 10.4 or below is eligible to register for at least one of these championships.

The CDGA also features a robust schedule of social competitions - events suitable for players of all ages, genders and skill levels - which was released earlier this month. Registration for this more casual series of playing opportunities will open Monday, Jan. 31.

All events will be conducted in accordance with the CDGA`s COVID-19 Event Guidelines and Policies that were created under the guidance of international, national, and local health organizations and administrations, as well as the Golf Operational Restrictions set by the State of Illinois and Back2Golf. All listed guidelines and policies are subject to change.
