One month after saying the Baltimore Country Club would likely host the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship in 2011, tournament officials have moved the golf event to the historic Westchester Country Club in New York. The change in venue, announced Friday, ends the tournament's association with BCC, which staged it from 2007 through 2009. This year's championship was held at TPC Potomac and Avenel Farm, in the Washington suburbs, with the understanding that it would return to Baltimore for the final year of its 5-year run. But when tournament officials abruptly changed the date from late September to mid-August, in an apparent effort to boost attendance, BCC agreed to part ways because its agreement stipulated a September/October timeframe.

For all but one week of the year, the historic East Course at Baltimore Country Club is a lush, well-manicured private sanctuary for members, a tough but fair test that everyone from scratch players to those who shoot in triple digits can appreciate. But during the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship, which begins Thursday in Timonium, the iconic club long known as Five Farms is transformed. This lovely octogenarian that was laid out by legendary golf architect A.W. Tillinghast in the 1920s and renovated four years ago by Kentucky designer Keith Foster has a bit of a modern-day beast added to its timeless beauty.
