Each year, nearly 100 amateur golfers compete in a three-day, 54-hole tournament to be crowned the best amateur golfer in Northeast Ohio.

This year, the GCAC will take place from August 8 to 10 at Manakiki Golf Course, with qualifying tournaments on July 19, 20, 26 and 27. All players who qualify and play in the tournament will now earn world amateur ranking points. And, once the tournament is complete, the GCAC winner will be a World Amateur Ranked Player.
�We are excited about the recognition from World Amateur Golf Ranking. It will add to the already exciting and competitive play so many people enjoy in the Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship,� said John Fiander, PGA Master Professional. �It shows the world the first class amateur golf events Cleveland Metroparks provides for the area.�
