July 08, 2020

Aaron Jarvis participated in the North & South Junior Amateur Championship from July 5-8, 2020.  The North & South Junior Amateur Championship put you through a complete test of skill by playing two of the world’s best golf courses at Pinehurst.  Aaron finished T11 with a three round total of 216.


In round 1, the players tee off on The Centennial Course No, 8, which was designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 1996 – combines classic Donald Ross Course 2 concepts with the whimsical snarls that have become Fazio’s calling card.  Fazio took full advantage of the 420 acres of rolling terrain and natural wetlands to fashion a course that’s visually enthralling and challenging yet fun to play.  Aaron’s round on The Centennial Course 8 was challenging but he finish the day with an impressive 1 under 71, 6719 yards course that placed him T9 on the leaderboard.


Round 2 was played on the famous Course No. 2, designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1907.  This is acenterpiece of Pinehurst Resort, remains one of the world’s most celebrated golf courses. It has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America and hosted back-to-back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in 2014. The U.S. Open will return in 2024.  Aaron’s round on this famous Par 70, 6818 yards PGA course started with a challenge with three back to back bogeys and windy rainy weather.  However, he responded with a couple birdies which he finished the round 2 over 72.


Round 3 was back on Course No. 8 with another impressive 1 over 73, with difficult pin locations which was very challenging.  


Jarvis said “The field and courses were very challenging. I had the pleasure of playing on the famous Course No. 2 which hosted the U.S. Open. I played very well throughout the tournament with the guidance of my Coach, Andy Leadbetter. 


Pinehurst is where the American golf story is rooted, and where it continues to flourish. Most know of its modern history – with stories like the Payne Stewart putt that won the 1999 U.S. Open. But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years.
