RTJ Capitol Hill – September 19-22, 2019

P rofessional golfers from around the world will once again head to Alabama’s River Region for the Guardian Championship on the LPGA’s Symetra Tour. Sponsored by Guardian Credit Union, the professional tournament will be played on the Senator Course in Prattville at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Capitol Hill location. The Korn Ferry Tour played the same course in April, making it the only course in North America to host both professional men’s and women’s golf in 2019. This is the 22nd year for professional golf to be played on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

This year’s Guardian Championship will feature 120 professional women’s golfers from nearly 30 countries. This will be the third year for the locally sponsored event at Capitol Hill. The 54-hole tournament will take place Friday, September 20 through Sunday, September 22. Guardian Credit Union, based in Montgomery, is sponsoring the Guardian Championship and offering free admission to the event.

Volunteers Needed
From hospitality to marshalling to scoring, it takes nearly 300 volunteers to run the tournament. Volunteers don’t have to play golf to be part of the event and will be trained. Potential volunteers can contact Bonnie Colemna, volunteer coordinator, at with any questions.

Free Family Events
To make the event more fan friendly this year, several community events involving the players have been planned during tournament week. From the Alabama Power Youth Clinic to a putting competition in one of the Guardian branches, expect to see professional golfers on the course and throughout the community.
