For almost two decades now, the SAS Championship has been an important tournament for those who appreciate golf. It is played annually every autumn in the prestigious private vicinity of Prestonwood Country Club, right in Cary, North Carolina. This tournament is sponsored by PGA Tour Champions, which is a men’s professional senior golf tour. With a $315,000 prize, it’s no wonder that professional golfers from all over the world aim for it.


The first SAS Championship winner was American professional golfer Bruce Lietzke, who won 13 tournaments on the PGA Tour between 1977 and 1994 and won back-to-back in the next year. The current SAS Champion is German professional golfer Bernhard Langer, who first won it in 2012. At 62, Langer is known to be one of the most successful players on the PGA Tour Champions and holds a record of 11 senior major championships and achieved the career Senior Grand Slam (winning each of the five major championships at least once during a career).

But this tournament is not all about the thousand-dollar prize. The proceeds of the SAS Championship benefit organizations that support education, like Y Learning, a signature project of the YMCA. It is an afterschool program that assists students from grades 3 to 8 who are having difficulty with school system standards. Most beneficiaries are lacking financial and educational support. Nearly a thousand children from area schools are participating in Y Learning for free.

Planning to visit? The 2019 SAS Championship is happening from October 11 to 13. Tickets go on sale for $20 to $120. A VIP parking pass from the clubhouse entitles you to park in the same lot the players park in! The Chill Club 17th Green Hospitality Ticket gives you access to lunch, an open bar, and an open-air viewing deck.
