Cleveland Metroparks Golf announces the current list of exempt players for the 2018 Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship, which will be played at Sleepy Hollow Golf Course in Brecksville on August 10-12th.
Below is a list of the categories for exemption and all of the players who have earned a spot through each of those categories. A final few of the categories are still to be filled in the next few weeks, also listed below.
These exempt players can join those who qualify for the Cleveland Am via the four upcoming Course Championships over two consecutive weekends: Manakiki and Shawnee Hills July 14-15; and Sleepy Hollow and Big Met July 21-22.
Exempt players can sign up online for these Course Championships for $110 and then pay $10 at those events to confirm they are coming to the GCAC.
Exempt players skipping the Course Championships can sign up and pay $120 either on-line or at any of the qualifier host courses.
