·1 min read

The Biltmore Forest County Club will host the 2025 U.S. Senior Men's Amateur Championship, the U.S. Golf Association announced Friday.

The club, which turns 100 on July 4 of this year, previously hosted the 1999 women's amateur and the 2013 women's mid-amateur. It was also a PGA Tour stop from 1939-42.

"On behalf of all of us at the Biltmore Forest Country Club, we are honored to host the 70th U.S. Senior Amateur Championship," club president Kip Warlick said in a news release. "It is very gratifying to see the club’s rich history culminate in the hosting of another USGA championship."

The senior amateur is open to amateur golfers 55 years or older with a handicap of 7.4 or lower. Exact dates for the 2025 edition have not yet been announced, but the six-day tournament usually takes place at the end of August.

In 2015, the course closed for eight months to undergo a $6.4 million renovation that included a change of grass species, an overhaul of greens and bunkers and a new irrigation system.

Biltmore Forest County Club was ranked the No. 24 course in the state by the North Carolina Golf Panel, the highest of any Buncombe County course and the third-highest in WNC. It is a par-70, 6,620-yard course.

"We are thrilled to announce our return to this exceptional club," championship director Rob Doone said. "We look forward to a great test of golf for the world’s best senior amateur players and are confident this course will identify a worthy champion and provide an unforgettable experience for everyone."
