FAR HILLS, NJ (September 19, 2017) - The 31st U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, originally slated for Oct. 7-12 at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Fla., will be relocated to a new venue to be identified at a later date, the USGA announced Tuesday.
This follows last week’s announcement that the championship would be postponed due to the impact of Hurricane Irma on the region, including extensive flooding and damage sustained by Quail Creek’s course and clubhouse.
“Our thoughts continue to be with our good friends at Quail Creek, and with everyone affected by this storm as they continue to recover and rebuild,” said Rachel Sadowski, U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship director. “The USGA remains committed to conducting this championship, and we are working diligently to secure a new venue that provides the ultimate test of golf for these exceptional athletes.”
Players were notified via email Tuesday of the change. More information on a revised date and venue will be delivered as plans are solidified.
