Charlotte, N.C. - Set in the historic Myers Park neighborhood south of Charlotte, Myers Park Country Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious private golf organizations in North Carolina. The course opened in 1921 with nine holes and debuted its Donald-Ross designed 18-holes layout in 1944.
In 1945, Byron Nelson began his record 11-tournament winning streak at Myers Park Country Club, with his victory at the Charlotte Open giving the club significant national notoriety.
Ten years later, Myers Park Country Club added to its championship golf resume by hosting the 1955 U.S. Women’s Amateur. The event ran from August 22nd to the 27th that year with 112 women competing. The final match saw Patricia A. Lesser coming out on top of Jane Nelson with a final score of 7 & 6.
The Junior Presidents Cup marks the biggest event at the historic course since 1955. The three day event includes four-ball, foursome and single match formats. In order to clinch the cup a team must reach 12.5 points.
The event also features the Brandon Lawn Real Estate Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament which pairs together Myers Park members with participants in the field for a PGA TOUR like Pro-Am. Participants will play a shamble format with team champion crowned at the end of the 18-hole outing.
Members were also selected to be the caddies for the International and US Teams during the fourball, foursome and singles matches. Each member of the US and International team will have the same caddie throughout the weekend allowing them to build a meaningful relationship with a member of the Myers Park membership.
This weeks Junior Presidents Cup has over 100 volunteers from the Myers Park membership. The volunteers help the AJGA staff accomplish our mission by filling roles as spotters, timing stations, medics, water rovers, standard bearers, walking match scorers and more.
The AJGA appreciates the support of Myers Park Country Club and their membership towards the Junior Presidents Cup. It wouldn't be a success without the course staff and their members.
