ALBANY — The Symetra Tour will return to Capital Hills at Albany Golf Course on Memorial Day weekend with the second edition of the CDPHP Open from May 29-31.
The 144-player field will be competing for a total purse of $150,000, up 20% from 2019. The tournament will be a 54-hole stroke play format with a cut to the low 60 players after 36 holes. The winner’s share for the event is $22,500.
From 1984-1998, the event was contested at Town of Colonie Golf Course in Schenectady before a one-year hiatus. It then spent two years each at Western Turnpike Golf Course and Orchard Creek Golf Club, before settling in at Capital Hills at Albany Golf Course for good in 2004.
“Now going on 36 years in the Capital Region, our stop in Albany keeps growing and is now the longest running active tournament on Tour,” said Mike Nichols, the Chief Business Officer of the Symetra Tour. “Jimmy Miller and his team do a great job of ensuring the week runs smoothly, and the addition of title sponsor CDPHP last year has only helped to expand opportunities for the next generation of LPGA Tour stars.”
