This summer, Crestview Country Club once again opens their doors to welcome the Air Capital Classic. Crestview Country Club, founded in 1921, moved to its present location in 1969 and is the only 36-hole country club in Kansas. Both courses were designed by the legendary golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones.
The Air Capital Classic enters their 28th year and will be played on Crestview's North Course, which carries a slope of 131 and a 74.3 course rating from the black tees. This course, measuring 6,913 yards, is a very good test. If the wind blows, watch out! All of the three pars, which average over 200 yards, play directly into the predominant south wind. Water comes into play on 11 of the 18 holes.
In 2015, the Air Capital Classic was awarded with the Web.com Tour’s inaugural Best Pro-Am Experience Award at the PGA TOUR’s Tournament Meetings.
Perhaps the most memorable and famous feature of the Air Capital Classic is the Coors Light Corner located at the 17th green, featuring VIP chalets and a unique festive atmosphere. Each day the 17th green chalets draw 3,000 to 4,000 spectators a day – a crowd some tournaments would love to have over all 18 holes, never mind one.
Additionally, the tournament is supported by select business and community leaders interested in supporting the event and the surrounding community - the Air Capital Classic Ambassadors.
