ABOUT THE Women's Western Amateur

The The Western Golf Association (WGA) has partnered with the Women’s Western Golf Association to administer the Women’s Western Amateur. Held without interruption since 1901, this event is one of the oldest annual championships in women’s amateur golf. The list of past champions includes current stars and legends of the LPGA TOUR, including Ariya Jutanugarn (2012), Stacy Lewis (2006), Brittany Lang (2003), Grace Park (1998), Cristie Kerr (1995) and Nancy Lopez (1976).

The Women's Western Amateur is open to amateur women who have an up-to-date 18-hole handicap index that does not exceed 5.4 under the World Handicap System. The WWGA Committee limits the field to a maximum of 120 contestants.

The championship begins with 36 holes of stroke- play qualifying, after which the field is cut to the low 32 players for match play. In the event of a tie for the 32nd position, a sudden-elimination playoff will determine the final match play qualifiers. Five rounds of 18-hole matches will decide the Women's Western Amateur champion.
