Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas is the new home for the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament. According to co-designer Bill Coore, the course "is not a straightforward, point-A-to-B-to-C golf course to be played almost exclusively in the air.."

Trinity Forest isn't just the new home of the AT&T Byron Nelson.

The course announced Tuesday that it would host the inaugural Dallas Amateur Golf Championships, presented by the I Am A Golfer Foundation, in July.

The 36-hole event will take place July 21-22 and will be open to a maximum of 144 players.

Interested golfers must qualify for the event through an 18-hole qualifier at Cedar Crest Golf Course in Dallas. Qualifying dates have been set for June 8, June 24, July 8 and July 14. The event is open to anyone 22 or older who does not compete on a college or junior college team.

The entry fee for the championship is $180, and the entry fee for the qualifier is $50.

There are five divisions for the event -- men's and women's gross; men's and women's net; and men's senior gross (50 and older). Registration is available at IAmaGolfer.com. The handicap requirements for gross is a GHIN Index of 9.0 or less, and net is an index of 18.0 or less.

Trinity Forest received mixed reviews on hosting a PGA Tour event for the first time this month, although there's no question it's a top-notch course that will surely test amateurs. Cedar Crest is a fitting qualifying course, too, as it hosted the 1927 PGA Championship.
