England Golf is excited to announce the addition of the English Women’s Amateur Championship to its revised and provisional list of events for 2020.
The prestigious tournament is now due to take place at Woodhall Spa Golf Club between 28 July–1 August.
As with all events currently on the revised England Golf roster for 2020, this championship date is provisional and dependent on the government’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In what could be a remarkable week for amateur golf in England, the women’s championship is now pencilled in to run alongside the men’s championship which is also being held at Woodhall Spa.
Both events will utilise the Bracken and Hotchkin courses with the women’s championship featuring a maximum of 66 players.
After 36 holes of stroke play over two days on both courses, the top 16 players will progress to the match play stages. The 36-hole final will be played on the Hotchkin course on Saturday 1 August.
Last year, England’s Ellen Hume (pictured above) won the title at Saunton Golf Club by defeating 2017 champion Lily May Humphreys on the 19th hole.
Conor Gough emerged triumphant in the men’s event by beating England colleague Callum Farr.
