The Hinsdale Challenge is a new tournament this season designed to attract the region's top-ranked teams to Hinsdale Golf Club, Katherine Legge, and Salt Creek Club. The men's draw will be played on December 12-13, 2009. The women's draw will take place in February 19-20.
In an interesting twist, the Men's draw will accommodate 32 teams -- 28 taken first-come, first-served from the APTA team rankings. The remaining four spots will feature local teams who are chosen through a qualifier draw to be played on December 5.
