2020 Qualifying

IMPORTANT UPDATE (April 17, 2020)

The COVID-19 crisis continues to be an unprecedented time for Connecticut and our nation. Everyone at the CSGA, our volunteers, board and staff, all offer our sympathy and support for those impacted by the virus.

In adherence with the guidelines outlined by the governor's office, the CSGA will be unable to conduct qualifying for the Russell C. Palmer Cup on May 4th. Therefore, the difficult decision has been made to cancel qualifying for this championship.

The Palmer Cup championship will still be held on May 26-27 at the Country Club of Waterbury. The championship field will now be determined by an expanded exemption criteria with an updated entry deadline of Wednesday, May 13th.
