Greystone Invitational on Hiatus for 2017
After careful consideration by the Greystone Board of Directors, it was decided to not schedule a Greystone Invitational for the 2017 golf calendar.
With Greystone Golf & Country Club hosting both the SEC Women's Golf Championship and the Regions Tradition, it is increasingly difficult to maintain the greens and course at the level our maintenance staff desires.
The Board and Staff looked at numerous options to keep the tournament going including: moving it to the Spring or Fall, moving it to the Legacy course again, reducing the field size, reducing the event back to three days, etc. However, even with numerous suggestions and options, we could not fit it into the calendar without creating serious conflicts with other Member events.
One of our objectives in hosting any event such as the Greystone Invitational is to never inconvenience the member play or lower the quality of the course playability on either course. Moving the GI on hiatus is the only way to avoid that from happening in 2017 and possibly subsequent years.
We realize that there will be a lot of disappointed players and members who always look forward to the Greystone Invitational each year. The regret in not holding an event in 2017 is a credit to the great event that our staff and volunteers created and that our host families supported over the years. Hopefully we will be able to bring it back at a future time and it will be more prestigious and better than ever!
Thanks again for everyone who participated or volunteered to help with the Greystone Invitational over the past sixteen years!
