2018 Golfweek Senior National Match Play

2018 Golfweek Senior National Match Play

Dormie Club – West End, N.C.

Aug. 15-17, 2018


Tucked into the golf-rich outskirts of Pinehurst is the award-winning Dormie Club. Designed by the renowned golf course architectural team of Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw, the Dormie Club opened in 2010 and is currently ranked at No. 3 in N Carolina on Golfweek’s 2018 Best State-by-State list of courses you can play. The design plays off the Sandhills of central North Carolina and features 110-feet of elevation changes, three natural lakes, and an aesthetic that draws inspiration from the Scottish Highlands. Its old-world design includes several reachable par fours, wind tunnels, bunkers positioned to stimulate creative strategy, and a reverse Redan par three. Designed with the philosophy that traditional, strategic golf is the most rewarding, it’s the perfect match play venue for the fifth annual Golfweek Senior National Match Play.


The Golfweek Senior National Match-Play Championship consists of three separate brackets, senior (age 55-64), super-senior (age 65-69) and legends (age 70+). Over the course of three days, players will be whittled to one senior national match-play champion in each division. As players are eliminated from match-play they will enter a consolation stroke-play competition using the stableford scoring system.
