For 26 years, the Greater Blacksburg Open (GBO) was a fixture at Blacksburg Country Club. In January 2001, a new tradition began as the first Allegheny Amateur was held in Blacksburg, Virginia. It was a great event for almost 20 years but we have now ushered in a new level of amateur competition and the Allegheny Amateur has become a Four-Ball Competition.
Blacksburg Country Club is excited to host this newly formatted event attracting the best players from the State of Virginia in a quality amateur golf competition. Below you will find key information about the tournament.
