Guyan Golf Course Details:

The Guyan Golf Course was built in 1922 in the east section of Huntington. The course has been the site of numerous tournaments including U.S. Amateur and U.S. Open Qualifiers and the Marshall University Invitational.

The par 71 Guyan has also hosted several West Virginia Opens.
The first, in 1936, was won by Sam Snead. Snead also qualified for his first U.S. Open at the course.

Guyan measures 6,523 yards from the championship tees, and features medium-sized greens with just enough woods to make it interesting.

This traditional-style course has tree-lined fairways built on rolling terrain, and water comes into play on one hole.
The most difficult hole is #2, a 444-yard, par 4, requiring a long and accurate tee shot up a narrow, tree-lined fairway.
