Seattles Broadmoor Golf Club Named Host Of 2024 U.S. Womens Amateur – Patch

SEATTLE, WA —The United States Golf Association announced Thursday that Seattle’s Broadmoor Golf Glub will be the host site for the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.
The tournament, which is scheduled to be the 62nd annual event, will take place from Sept. 21- 26 of 2024. The event is open to female amateur golfers who are 50 years of age by the final day of the event and whose handicap index does not exceed 14.4.
This will be the fourth time the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur will be played at Broadmoor and the 29th USGA championship to be staged in Washington.
“The USGA is excited to bring the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship to Broadmoor Golf Club,” said Tracy Parsons, the USGA’s championship director. “This championship showcases senior women’s golf and encourages women to play competitively through all stages of life. These athletes embody the spirit and passion of the amateur game and will undoubtedly enjoy this challenging course.”
Broadmoor was designed by A. Vernon Macan and opened in 1927. The course previously hosted the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 1974, 1984 and 1996 and the 1961 U.S. Girls’ Junior.
As a regular home of the PGA Tour’s Seattle Open—which last was held in 1966—the Broadmoor hosted several illustrious winners, including: Byron Nelson (1945), Dave Marr (1961), Jack Nicklaus (1962), who notched just the second win of his professional career, and Billy Caspar (1964).
The course also hosted the 1999 Pac-10 Men’s Championship and the 2007 Pac-10 Women’s Championship.
“Broadmoor Golf Club and our surrounding community are looking forward to welcoming the USGA and its competitors to Seattle,” said Louis Peterson, president of Broadmoor Golf Club. “Our club is thrilled to provide a test for the top senior amateur players in the world and we are eager for 2024 to arrive to watch them compete.”
This year’s U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur is scheduled to take place from July 30-August 4 at Anchorage Golf Course in Alaska. It will be the first USGA championship played in Alaska. The 2023 tournament is set for Sept. 30-Oct. 5 at the Troon County Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
