The Club at Olde Stone was designed by internationally acclaimed golf course architect Arthur Hills and is set to fully open in the spring of 2006. The course features a combination of hills, flatlands, trees, grassland and water. The par-72, 7,400-yard layout features bentgrass fairways and greens with water hazards coming into play on five holes.

This event will mark the first time the AJGA has conducted an event in Bowling Green, however the Association is no stranger to the Bluegrass State as one of its longest-standing tournaments is conducted in Ashland, Ky., each year. The AJGA has also had stints in Lexington and Louisville.

“The AJGA is very excited about our relationship with Houchens Industries,” said Lee Pinchouck, AJGA vice president/regional director for the Midwest. “This event will give our juniors in the Bowling Green area and the Midwest another opportunity to play in front of college golf coaches. I am confident that the support of Houchens Industries and the Bowling Green community will lead to a very successful event.”

Houchens Industries, founded in 1917 by Irvin Houchens in rural Kentucky, employs more than 10,000 people in 13 states and is the largest 100 percent employee owned company in the United States. With interests in grocery, convenience stores, insurance, recycling, web-based management, manufacturing, construction, tanning supplies, agriculture and other industrial applications, Houchens Industries now conducts business in all 50 states.
