Dear Potential Participant:
A brief note to encourage you to participate in the 2021 Maumelle Classic presented by McLarty Nissan. The Classic is held at Maumelle Country Club in Maumelle, Arkansas, only 10 minutes from West Little Rock. Maumelle Country Club is rated one of the top courses in the state of Arkansas. The Arkansas State Golf Association frequently utilizes Maumelle Country Club as a state tournament site, and the course is a challenging test. Years past, it has been host to satellite PGA events in 1987 and in 1988 was a TPA stop.
The Tournament Committee promised that 2020 would be an exciting event and the players provided exactly that for all spectators. After three days of intense competition four players finished tied for the lead. Those four players played hole #18 in a sudden death playoff. Trey DePriest drained a 30 foot putt for birdie to win the playoff. Trey had a three-day total of 213 (75, 68, & 70).
It is the intention of the Tournament Committee for the Classic to continue to expand into one of the premier Amateur Tournament in the South. This year should prove to be yet another marvelous year. With this thought in mind, we have invited the top amateurs of the states contiguous to Arkansas. Along with you, we have mailed invitations to these high quality competitors to assemble the strongest field yet for The Classic. The combination of a championship golf course and championship caliber players will lead to another great tournament this year.
We are excited to announce that USGA Senior Amateur Qualifying will be held on the Monday (July 19th) following The Classic. For more information on this event please contact the USGA.
We are pleased to have McLarty Nissan as our presenting sponsor once again. McLarty Nissan shares our vision of making the Classic the premiere amateur event in the state.
Should you be unable to attend this year but want to be retained on the mailing list, please advise the committee. If you do not attend and we receive no reply, your name will be deleted from the list. We look forward to seeing you in July!
Thank you for considering our tournament!
