La Crosse County Amateur Expands Golfer Eligibility

The 2021 La Crosse County Amateur Golf Championships are opening the door to even more potential players.
Beginning this year, eligibility requirements have been expanded to include past champions and players graduating from high schools, colleges or universities within La Crosse County.
For the past 30 years, eligible amateur players had to meet one of three requirements:
1. Be a resident of La Crosse County.
2. Be employed in La Crosse County.
3. Or have an active membership at a golf course within La Crosse County.

The two new rule changes allow:
* Past champions may enter but must play in Championship Flight only.
* Graduates of a La Crosse County high school or university/college may enter but also must play in Championship Flight only.

Eligibility rules remain the same for current high school players within La Crosse County.
For example, male players currently enrolled in high school must:
1. Be a resident of La Crosse County.
2. Have a maximum USGA slope of 5.0 by July 27, 2021.
Female players currently enrolled in high school must:
1. Be a resident of La Crosse County.
2. Have a maximum USGA slope of 11.0 by July 20, 2021.

All players competing in any of the Men’s, Women’s and Seniors tournaments must have a United States Golf Association handicap card, which is current as of July 20, 2021 for Seniors and Women’s and July 27, 2021 for Men’s.
“This opens the door to allow former past Championship Flight players the opportunity to return and compete,” said Bob Lamb, longtime tournament director.
One classic example is Ryan Quinn, five-time winner of the Men’s County Amateur. Quinn turned professional after winning his third straight title in 2003. After several years on mini pro tours, the left-handed Quinn regained his amateur status in 2013 and currently lives in Bloomington, IL, with his wife, the former Meghan Dunham, and twins sons.
When contacted about the changes this year, Quinn replied: “Meghan and I talked, and that weekend works for us. Plan on me playing. Super excited for it.”
