Are you good enough to play Quail?

Do you want a shot at playing Quail Hollow?

The best players in Mecklenburg County will get that opportunity later this summer if they can advance to the final round of the Charlotte City Amateur championship.

On-line registration has opened for the 2009 event at www.charlottecityam.com.

The tournament is open to any legal resident of Mecklenburg County with a handicap index of 6.4 or less.

This year's 54-hole event will begin Aug. 14 at Carolina Golf Club. The second round will be played Aug. 15 at Myers Park Country Club and the final round will be played Aug. 16 at the Quail Hollow Club. The field will be narrowed after each round with only the low 24 advancing to the final round.

First, you have to qualify. There are two opportunities -- July 13 and July 24 at Pine Island Country Club.
