Crestwood, Ledgemont Named Qualifying Sites for U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open
Two courses just over the Rhode Island border have been named qualifying sites for the USGA’s two most prestigious tournaments.
Ledgemont Country Club in Seekonk has been named a qualifying site for the U.S. Open, while Crestwood Country Club in Rehoboth has been named a qualifying site for the U.S. Amateur.
U.S. Open qualifying at Ledgemont takes place on May 11, while U.S. Amateur qualifying at Crestwood takes place July 6.
The U.S. Amateur is set to be held at Oakmont Country Club from August 9-15, while the U.S. Open return to Torrey Pines from June 17-20.
Established in 1924, Ledgemont was designed by Alfred Tull.
“Ledgemont has earned its reputation as one of the finest private clubs in the region by following the grand traditions held by all great clubs, and by fostering an atmosphere where members view the Club as an extension of their own home,” writes Ledgemont on Facebook.
Ledgemont is located at 131 Brown Ave in Seekonk.
Crestwood was designed by Geoffrey Cornish and is a par 71 course.
“The course is well laid out with wide and generous, well-defined fairways. The course features a variety of doglegs and some water hazards; each hole is unique. With generous landing areas come well-guarded greens, which place a premium on approach shots. Crestwood is truly playable and enjoyable for players of every skill level. You can play every day and never wish to be anywhere else,” writes Crestwood on its website.
Crestwood is located at 90 Wheeler Street in Rehoboth.
