The Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA), the largest women-focused national amateur golf association, will hold its 2017 EWGA Championship at Hot Springs Village in Hot Springs, Arkansas on October 6th and 7th.
The EWGA Championship is one of the largest women’s amateur golf competitions for all skill levels, including stroke play competition and team scramble competition. More than 2,200 EWGA members participated in local qualifying events and advanced to one of 15 semi-final championships held throughout the summer. This year 265 members representing 79 chapters, 39 states and Canada have advanced to the EWGA Championship Finals, a two-day, 36-hole event to be played on the Granada, DeSoto and Ponce de Leon courses at Troon-managed Hot Springs Village.
"Championship season is upon us," said Jane Geddes, EWGA CEO. "Congratulations to all those who qualified for the 2017 edition of our marquee Championship. We're looking forward to a great weekend of golf and fun in Hot Springs and are grateful to our hosts Troon and Hot Springs Village."
With five flights of individual stroke play and 31 teams competing in the scramble division, the EWGA Championship is contested amongst a wide-range of abilities, including scratch golfers and women with 32 plus handicaps. This eclectic collection of skill, combined with balanced competition and social comraderie, epitomizes the many ways the EWGA aims to connect women to learn, play and enjoy the game.
Last year's Championship was held at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia, where Katie Brinker of Greenwood, Indiana took medalist honors for a third consecutive year. The Cincinatti Chapter claimed medalist honors in the scramble division.
