Laurel Hill to host 2013 U.S. Am Publinx

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Laurel Hill Golf Club, a public-access course in Lorton, Va., has been chosen to host the 2013 U.S. Amateur Public Links.

Designed by Bill Love and opened in 2005, Laurel Hill hosted a U.S. Amateur Publinx sectional qualifier in 2009, a U.S. Women’s Amateur Publinx sectional qualifier in ’10 and the Virginia State Golf Association Public Links Championship in 2008-10. This summer, Laurel Hill will again host a sectional qualifier for both the men’s and women’s U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.

“It is a tremendous honor for the USGA to have selected Laurel Hill Golf Club to host this national championship,” said Peter Furey, director of golf for the Fairfax County Park Authority. “A championship like this draws competitors from public-access courses around the country and speaks well of the Park Authority’s mission in public golf.”

The 2011 U.S. Amateur Publinx will be played June 27-July 2 at Bandon (Ore.) Dunes, and in 2012 at Soldier Hollow Golf Course in Midway, Utah. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
