USGA looks to Alaska to complete puzzle

With the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur headed to Anchorage Golf Course, every state will have hosted a USGA event

Added: By the USGA, Alaska to the list of host sites for the association’s championships. The 50th state will be the 50th state to host a USGA event when Anchorage Golf Course welcomes the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur, the USGA announced Wednesday in a news release. The tournament dates will be July 30-Aug. 4. Anchorage Golf Course, a municipal layout designed by Bill Newcomb and opened in 1987, sits on a hillside overlooking Alaska’s most populous city and offers a view of the tallest peak in North America, 20,310-foot Denali, formerly known as Mount McKinley. “It’s a monumental occasion for us to bring a championship to Alaska, something that has been a long time coming,” said Mike Davis, the USGA chief executive, who recently announced his retirement, effective at the end of 2021. “Players from all over the country dream of becoming USGA champions, so it is important we bring our events to all corners of the United States, to expose golfers and golf fans to the inspiration and competitiveness of our championships.” The U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur is open to any female golfer 50 years of age or older whose Handicap Index does not exceed 14.4.
