The Skyview Golf Association was founded and incorporated in 1960 as a not for profit organization in an effort to promote golf competition among African American golfers throughout the United States. lt was also intended as a stepping-stone to get Black golfers eventually ready for the Professional Golf Associations (PGA) tour. This was the beginning of the long run in summer golf tournaments that still exists today. The annual tournament is played in the summer at Asheville’s Municipal Golf Course. It is the longest running African American PRO AM Tournament in the US.
