TOURNAMENT PRESTIGE

Chatmoss Country Club hosts many tournaments each year including the Chatmoss Invitational Tournament. Prestige is not something that a tournament committee can buy, but something that is cultivated and cured over many years. The real cream events are easy to recognize. They are the ones that outstanding players will plan for year after year. Our list of champions is a great mixture of amateur and tour players.

In 1961, Dale Morey, winner of the North and South Championship (1964) and the Southern Amateur in the same year, won our first invitational. Deane Beman, former tour commissioner and U.S. Amateur champion (1960 & 1963), was our next champion in 1962. Bill Sibbick won in 1979 and shortly afterwards won the VSGA State Open in 1982. Keith Decker, winner of the VSGA Mid-Amateur (1990, 1991, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2004 & 2005) and the VSGA Open (1996, 2001 & 2002) has won our tournaments 20 different times. Tom McKnight, also a winner of the Mid Amateur (1985 & 1996) and the VSGA State Open (1985), was our champion in 1992. Four tour players have won our invitational including Wright Garrett (1978), Joe Daley (1990), A Walter Hall (1993), and Mike Goodes in 1996.

Past champions make the Chatmoss Invitational one of the premier tournaments in the Southeast.
