FRANKLIN – There will be a new look to the Tennessee high school golf state championships in 2021, and the Tennessee Golf Association will play a role in it.
The TGA announced Thursday afternoon a partnership with the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association (TSSAA) to run tournament operations for the season-ending prep tournaments, beginning next school year.
In addition to that, the state championships will all be contested in one week – as opposed to the current set-up of three weeks – and will be moving to Sevierville Golf Club. They are scheduled to be held October 10-15, 2021.
Tennessee Golf Association executive director Chad Anderson is excited about teaming up with the state’s high school governing body to provide a championship atmosphere and experience for the top junior golfers in the state.
“The TGA is looking forward to working with the TSSAA as we strive to host a great championship for the high school kids,” Anderson said. “Our goal is to create a great experience and determined the best high school golfer and team in each classification.”
“Sevierville Golf Club will be a fantastic destination site with great golf courses, practice facilities and activities for the players and their families to enjoy.”
