The Heritage Classic Foundation has extended its contract with Berkeley Hall Golf Club to host the Players Amateur through 2019.
The event will celebrate its 19th anniversary July 10-15, 2018. The Players Amateur has been played at Berkeley Hall since 2012.
“Berkeley Hall offers Players Amateur contestants a week of top-notch golf and first-class amenities,” said tournament director Steve Wilmot. “It gives them a true taste of what they can expect when they start competing on the PGA Tour.”
The Players Amateur formed a partnership with the RBC Heritage in 2002 and was one of the first major amateur events to offer its champion an exemption into a PGA Tour event. The Players Amateur is conducted by the Heritage Classic Foundation.
Many Players Amateur past participants and champions have become successful on the professional level, including 2017 RBC Heritage Champion Wesley Bryan. Brooks Koepka, Brian Harman, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Lucas Glover, Matt Kuchar, Justin Thomas, Camilo Villegas and Bill Haas are a few other Players Amateur alumni to win on the PGA Tour.
