Legacy of the Links, LLC’s 2016 Top 100 Invitational will be co-hosted by Sebonack Golf Club (Southampton, NY) and Friar’s Head (Baiting Hollow, NY) from September 26 to 27. Each year this invitational is contested at Top-100 ranked courses and attracts players worldwide from other Top-100 ranked courses. Sebonack Golf Club is ranked No. 94 in Golf Digest’s recently published list of World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses, while Friar’s Head is currently ranked by Golf Magazine as No. 31 on its Top 100 Courses in the World.
“We could not be more excited to have two iconic clubs such as Friar’s Head and Sebonack Golf Club as our 2016 hosts, with participants playing Sebonack on September 26th and Friar’s Head the following day,” said Kevin McGrath, co-founder of Legacy of the Links, a specialist golf travel and event management company. “We are extremely grateful to both clubs for sharing our vision for this exclusive charitable golf tournament.”
Sebonack Golf Club is a Jack Nicklaus with Tom Doak design that opened for play in 2006. Nicklaus and Doak, two designers with dramatically different styles, used the natural contours and features of the land to create a unique look. The result is that Sebonack looks quite different from its illustrious neighbors and provides a strong golfing challenge for players of all calibers.
“Sebonack Golf Club is honored to be co-hosting the 2016 Top 100 Invitational event alongside Friar’s Head,” said Troy Albert, Director of Operations at Sebonack Golf Club.
“When we reviewed Legacy of the Link’s vision of the event, we immediately captured the uniqueness of what they had created. In addition to the tournament, we are looking forward to the Top 100 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will be held in our clubhouse overlooking the Great Peconic Bay. We have no doubt that each participant will have a truly unique experience throughout the entire event.”
A portion of each participants’ entry fee will constitute a charitable tax deduction with the tournament now being owned and operated by the Top 100 Invitational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation.
