Carter County Bank East Tennessee Amateur
The 14th Annual Carter County Bank East Tennessee Amateur is being held on July 1st, July 2nd, and July 3rd at Elizabethton Municipal Golf Course.
Building to a premier event, the ETA has always been sponsored by Carter County Bank. It is a TGA State points event for the Championship Division and pays out over $13,000 in merchandise each year. Due to the strong competitive field who participates each year as well as being such an outstanding value, the tournament traditionally fills to capacity.
The golf course offers challenging putting surfaces along with a good mix of elevation changes. Players are challenged to play a variety of shots using all the clubs in their bag. The golf course staff takes great pride in this event and the course is always in excellent playing condition.
Championship Division: First 63 paid entries, 54-hole medal play with a 36 hole cut to the low 30 players and ties. It is a TGA State Points Event with the winner receiving a $750 gift certificate.
