SPECIAL NEWS FLASH
MID-AMATEUR DIVISION ADDED TO THE AMATEUR
The Directors of the Women’s Southern Golf Association are excited to announce the addition of a Mid-Amateur Division to its Amateur. This Mid-Amateur Division will be a true “Championship” played concurrently with the Amateur Championship.
WSGA President Linda Carter felt the 100th playing of the Southern Amateur in 2015 was the perfect time to unveil this new division. WSGA history has many Mid-Amateurs who have won the Southern title. This addition will not prohibit the players age 25 and over from entering the Amateur Division; they will have a choice of which division to compete. However, all players under the age of 25 must compete in the Amateur Division. Yardages for the Mid-Amateur Division are proposed to be set between 5,600 – 5,800 yards while the Amateur yardages will be comparable to collegiate yardages. The combined fields will be set at 96 players with 48 in each division.
The founders of the Women’s Southern Golf Association in 1911 wanted to give women of the South a place to showcase their competitive golf skills. The WSGA believes this tradition of elite competitive golf will continue with the new Mid-Amateur Championship created for women golfers who prefer a shorter course setup.
Sara Bay Country Club in Sarasota, Florida will be the site for the 2015 Championships and the dates are June 1st – June 5th. The WSGA has secured this historic and prestigious Donald Ross design course to host the 100th playing of the Amateur Championship and the inaugural playing of the 1st WSGA Mid-Amateur Championship. Mid-Amateur players from the South need to mark their calendars, plot a path to the gulf coast of Florida and be a part of a new history of the WSGA.
