For 44 years the Spirit of America golf tournament has attracted some of the best amateurs in the southeast to Burning Tree Country Club in Decatur Alabama for the annual Spirit of America Golf Classic. The 2013 Spirit of America Golf Tournament kicks off this Thursday, July 4th with a highly competitive field of amateurs competing to take home the trophy. Past participants in the Spirit of America include current touring pros Stewart Cink, Heath Slocum, Carl Pettersson and Spike McRoy as well as senior tour legend Andy Bean.
The tournament is a great one for young golfers to participate in and is limited to the lowest 150 handicaps that apply for entry. The Spirit is also sanctioned by the Alabama Golf Association as a major amateur tournament, which means the event offers 150 amateur ranking points to the champion. The tournament also offers career advancement prizes for example in 2010 the winner got a berth into a 2010 Hooters’ Tour event.
