History of the Connecticut Senior Match Play Championship

The Connecticut Senior Match Play Championship is open to bona fide members of a CSGA club who are fifty five years of age and over by the start of the tournament. The tournament, which is the first of two majors for senior golfers on the CSGA schedule, challenges competitors with a round of stroke play to determine the low sixteen match play qualifiers followed by two rounds of match play each day that culminate in an eighteen-hole final match. The tournament was first held at the Connecticut Golf Club in 2007, where Bill Torza of Stanley Golf Course captured the title over Shawn McLoughlin, 5 & 3.

The 2017 Connecticut Senior Match Play Championship will be hosted at Brooklawn Country Club for the first time in tournament history.

Founded in 1895, Brooklawn Country Club is one of the earliest members of the United States Golf Association. The championship layout was designed by A.W. Tillinghast and has previously hosted four USGA Championships, including the 1974 U.S. Junior Amateur, 1979 U.S. Women's Open, 1987 U.S. Senior Open and 2003 U.S. Girls Junior Amateur.
