LIBERTY CORNER, New Jersey — Sankaty Head Golf Club, on Nantucket Island in Siaconset, Mass., has been chosen by the USGA as the host site for the 41st U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship. The dates of the championship are September 25-30, 2021. Miacomet Golf Course, also on Nantucket, will serve as the stroke-play co-host course.
“The USGA is pleased to partner with Sankaty Head Golf Club and Miacomet Golf Course in bringing the U.S. Mid-Amateur for the first time to Massachusetts, a state that has a long-standing commitment to amateur golf,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “The U.S. Mid-Amateur title is highly prized by the 264 players who vie for the Robert T. Jones Jr. Memorial Trophy each year and the championship’s prominence has ascended with a full exemption into the following year’s U.S. Open awarded to the champion.”
