Since 2010, it has already become one of the largest senior amateur golf championships in the USA and is ranked by the CGA as a Certified Senior Ranked Points Event with a 2 multiplier. The DSA has grown steadily and due to the support of local businesses and sponsors the purse has exceeded $13,000 with prizes to 40% of the field.
The championship has 3 Divisions; a Senior Division (age 55+), a Super Senior Division (age 65+) and a Legends Division (age 70+).
