The 98th Michigan Women’s Amateur Championship will be held starting Monday, August 11 at the University of Michigan Golf Course.
The format calls for 36 holes of stroke play Monday and Tuesday to determine a low 32 scorers to fill out the match play bracket. Match play continues through Friday to determine a champion.
The University of Michigan golf course will be a tough test for Michigan’s best amateur women golfers. It is a classic Alister MacKenzie design that has previously hosted the Michigan Amateur for men, the 1947 NCAA Championship and 12 Big Ten Championships.
As a side note, I absolutely love the University golf course. You can see my review here. I have always said that I’ll never get to play Augusta National, but that as a University of Michigan alumni, I can play a course by the same architect as often as I like.
