The 74th annual 4-A championships will be held this year at Pinehurst number eight, with the 25th annual 3-A championships at the Foxfire Golf and Country Club in Foxfire Village. The 2-A event, also the 25th annual, is scheduled for Keith Hills Country Club in Buies Creek and the 13th annual 1-A championships will be contested at the Longleaf Golf and Country Club in Southern Pines.
Each course will be set up at approximately 6,500 yards and par 72,with the
exception of a par 71 at Longleaf for the 1-A tournament.
The top three teams from each of the regionals along with the top three
individuals not on one of the qualifying teams earned spots in the 36-hole
classified championships. Prior to 1986, all NCHSAA golf teams competed for a
single title in an open tournament. Play went to three classifications in 1986
and then to four classes beginning with the 1998 tournaments.
Cary Green Hope has won three of the last four 4-A team championships, and
Michael Cromie of Green Hope is back to defend his individual championship after
shooting 73-66--139 to take the 2009 title on Pinehurst number four. Southern
Pines Pinecrest, the 2008 champion, has also qualified as a team for the 4-A
Defending 3-A champion Hickory returns to the state tournament, seeking its
third team title in the last four years, and the Red Tornadoes will have to
battle Wilson Fike, the '08 champ and last year's runner-up.
In 2-A, defending champ North Lincoln will look to repeat, but will have to battle Topsail, which won last year's 1-A title but has moved up in the new realignment.
Greg Bunner of Gastonia Highland Tech was the 2009 1-A medalist, as he shot a
three-under 141 total on the Siler City Country Club course, capturing the
individual crown by a whopping eight shots. He will be gunning for a second
straight 1-A crown. John Welden of East Surry is the only golfer to win back to
back 1-A titles, which he did in 2007-08.
The first threesomes will go off at eight o'clock in the morning on each of the
two days of the tournament in all four classifications.
