Blackstone Country Club at Vistancia, located within the 7,100-acre Vistancia master plan in Peoria, will host the local qualifying event for the World Golf Scramble with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., June 8 to earn an invitation to compete in the World Championships in Las Vegas Aug. 13-16.

The club and its operators greatly encourage all participation, especially amateur competitors. 

“Blackstone Country Club is proud to be the only private club in Arizona to host a qualifier. It’s nice to see a national event like the World Golf Scramble for amateur golfers take the place of the very popular Oldsmobile Scramble, which was discontinued a few years ago.  The fact that there is a gross and net division allows a great variety of golfers the chance to compete in a big time event.  With over 120 qualifying sites available it should produce a great field for the televised finals from Las Vegas in August with an anticipated purse of over $100,000.” – Tom Wilcox Director of Golf Operations – Blackstone Country Club at Vistancia
