Entry Fee

Your entry fee of $325 includes every meal once you arrive and any immediate family member that may attend (mother, father, sister and brother). If you cannot afford the entry fee or need help please let us know. We don’t want anyone to be denied an opportunity due to financial concerns. With the recent changes in the rules of amateur golf, we welcome requests for help and will evaluate them on a case by case basis.

Player Housing

The Sunnehanna Amateur offers housing to contestants and is awarded on a first come first served basis. Every effort will be made to place teammates together or fulfill housing requests. Priority is given to those with financial need or those that fly. If you cannot participate without housing, please inform the committee. We do not want financial limitations to prevent a player from competing. We regret that we do not have the availability to offer housing to family members. Players will be notified by email confirmation of their housing request in the weeks leading up to the tournament. PLEASE MAKE HOUSING REQUESTS AT THE TIME THAT YOU REGISTER ON THE SUNNEHANNA WEBSITE.
