CHAMPIONSHIP QUICK FACTS

Date: June 14, 2021

Host Site: Brook-Lea Country Club

2019 Champions: Nicholas & Madison Braman (Amateur) and Traci Petrillo & Stuart Harris (Senior)

Format: 18 holes of modified chapman stroke play (gross and net). Two players play as partners, each partner plays from the teeing ground and plays the partner's ball for the second shot. After the second shot, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and play that ball alternately to complete the hole. This format is modified on par-3s, so that the decision as to which ball to play alternately must be made after the tee shot.

Brook-Lea Country Club

The Brook-Lea Country Club was constructed in 1926, led by renowned golf course architect Donald Ross. He hand drew the layout, originally envisioned as 27 holes. While some of the holes have been renumbered from their original labels on the blueprints below, his hallmarks are found throughout the course. 

The members and staff are committed to providing a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. This golf course remains one of Rochester’s most challenging and enjoyable golf courses, sitting on 188 spectacularly scenic acres that include upland meadows, a meandering creek, ponds, and mature woodlands.

The course ranges in length from just under 5,900 yards from the Red tees to 6,800 yards from the Blue tees. Brook-Lea has been home to a couple New York State championships: the 1986 Women’s Amateur and the 1991 Men’s Amateur.
