Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz., has announced they will play host to the 2019 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur on September 14-19.
Forest Highlands features two courses: Canyon, a 1986 design by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf that ranks 78th on the Golfweek’s Best Modern Courses list, and Meadow, a 1999 Weiskopf design. After 36 holes of stroke play, the 132-player field will be cut to the low 64 scorers for match play.
The U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, which debuted in 1987, is open to players 25 and older who have a Handicap Index of 9.4 or better.
Forest Highlands has hosted three other USGA events: 2014 U.S. Girls’ Junior (won by Princess Mary Superal), 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur (Dave Womack) and 1996 U.S. Junior Amateur (Shane McMenamy).
“Forest Highlands is pleased to have been selected by the USGA to host the 2019 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur,” said Robert Scott, club president. “We are proud of our two championship courses and honored to work with the USGA in crowning another national champion at Forest Highlands.”
