Womens Southern Senior Championship
Many of you probably never heard of the Womens Southern Golf Association. It consists of players from fifteen states. Each year there is an Amateur Championship for all ages as well as a Senior Championship for ladies 50+. To play in the regular Championship, you must have a handicap index of 18 or less, while the Senior Championship allows handicaps as high as 23.5.
This year, the Senior tournament is at Bentwater Yacht and Country Club in Montgomery, TX. It's really a beautiful place with three courses, and we'll be playing the Weiskopf Course. (You can Google the place and get some really nice pictures.)The tournament is September 22-24 with a practice round on the 21st. Format consists of 54 holes of stroke play and you are flighted after the first 36 holes. The $220 entry fee includes one practice round and three rounds of golf, all cart fees, practice balls, club storage, gratuities and social events. There is a Cocktail Party/Buffet on Monday, Sept. 21st as well as an awards luncheon following completion of play.
The field is limited to 112 players and fills up FAST, so if you plan to play, sign up right away. You can find full details and an entry form at this link: http://www.womens-southerngolfassociation.org/
