ALTON — The Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association has announced Spencer T. Olin Golf Course will be the host of the 2015 East Side Amateur.
It has been a number of years since Spencer T. Olin has been in the mix when it comes to championship golf in St. Louis, having hosted the 1995 Metropolitan Amateur Championship. Under new ownership, led by Tom Long and Vern Van Hoy, Spencer T. is committed to becoming a championship venue once again through the efforts of General Manager Mary Campbell and Superintendent Tim Johnson.
The 2015 East Side Amateur will be played June 13-14; this will be the 12th playing of the East Side. Seth Smith captured the 2014 East Side at Lockhaven Golf Course. One caveat to the 2015 edition will be a morning shotgun start for Round 1 (Saturday); Round 2 (Sunday) will be starting times.
