The road to Port St. Lucie runs through Scioto Reserve Country Club for the top senior club professionals in Southern Ohio.
The SOPGA Senior Section Championship is officially scheduled for September 1-2, 2021 at Scioto Reserve in Powell, Ohio. Bob Sowards, PGA aims for his fourth consecutive title while the rest of the field will hope to end his reign at this event. With a strong field of contenders we should be in for an exciting two days at Scioto Reserve.
Scioto Reserve Country Club, designed by Barry T. Serafin, first opened in 2001 as a private golf and athletic club. The owner, Donald Kenney, a central Ohio developer of commercial, residential, and hotel properties wanted an athletic club with a golf course that was known for offering a full family experience.
Scioto Reserve Country Club’s layout was created along the base of the Scioto River and meanders across a landscape of rolling meadows covered with mature trees giving the modern layout a traditional look. There are several streams and lakes that come into play throughout. The large, rolling greens require a fair amount of accuracy. One of Scioto Reserve Country Club’s most memorable holes is the 12th. This 374-yard hole proves that par 4’s don’t have to be long to be challenging. It will test your short game with steep-faced fairway bunkers and another bunker short of the green.
There will be 5 spots available to compete in the 33rd Senior PGA Professional Championship on October 21-24, 2021 at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
Thank you to Andy Montgomery, PGA Director of Golf and Cory Carter, PGA GM & Head Professional for hosting the 76th Southern Ohio PGA Senior Section Championship.
