Sites for 2019 U.S. Senior Women’s Open Qualifying Sectional Announced

The United States Golf Association (USGA) announced sectional qualifying sites for the 2nd U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship, which will be contested this May at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Sectional qualifying, conducted over 18 holes, will take place at 17 courses between April 17-30. The U.S. Senior Women’s Open format mirrors that of the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Open championships—a walking-only, 72-hole stroke-play competition over four consecutive days. There will be a 36-hole cut including the top-50 players and ties.

This will be the sixth USGA championship contested at Pine Needles and the first since the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open, won by Cristie Kerr. The club, which hosted the 1996 and 2001 U.S. Women’s Opens, will also host the U.S. Women’s Open in 2022. The inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open was held in July at Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton, IL, and was won by World Golf Hall of Famer Laura Davies.

The Championship is open to any female competitor who is at least 50 years of age as of May 16 and whose Handicap Index® does not exceed 7.4. Online player registration begins on Monday, February 18. The entry deadline is 5 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, April 10.
