Arizona Croquet Club

US OPEN

Overview:

The US Open croquet tournament is an annual event hosted by the American Croquet Association (ACA).  The ACA was founded by Stan Patmor to provide representation for American players in Association Croquet (before the United States Croquet Association took any interest in Association croquet for  its membership).   Association Croquet is the foundation of international play and its member countries include Ireland, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Germany, France, Austria, Japan, the United States of America and other developing countries.

The US Open tournament is currently hosted at the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California, held annually during the first week of December.  Tournament rules follow the Laws of Association Croquet and time limited games.  The US Open is both competitive and social.   In most years, there are between 2 and 3 flights of play.  The Championship Open flight is available to players of all handicaps but limited to the top 20 entrants in the field.  This past year participation was down and only 10 entrants were available in the Open flight.
