Lanco Open

Tyler Wassell lays on the ground to get the distance to the 14th hole as caddie John Miller looks on during the Lanco Toyota Open at Overlook Golf Course on Friday, July 17, 2020.

An expanded Match Play Championship is a new wrinkle in the Lancaster County Golf Association’s 2021 event schedule announced last week.

The match play had been a 16-player invitational with invites and seeds based on performance in a given year’s Lanco Amateur and Open.

Now the field will be as large as 64 players, with the semifinals and finals to be played Aug. 14-15 at Lancaster Country Club. The quarterfinals are scheduled for Meadia Heights July 19-Aug. 4, with the earlier rounds played at to-be-determined sites in June and July.

The Amateur will be played June 18-19 at Highlands of Donegal, with the Open scheduled for Foxchase July 30.

The rest of the slate: Better-Ball, July 16-17 at Pilgrim’s Oak, the regional Mid-Amateur Aug. 20 at Carlisle Country Club, Senior Amateur at Conestoga Sept. 23 and the War of the Roses, a Ryder Cup-style team competition between Lancaster and York Counties, Sept. 25-26 at Bent Creek.

Registration for all events opens April 1. For more information go to
