City of University Place announcement.
The U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship will begin official qualifying play on Aug. 8 at Chambers Bay. Before the golfers tee off on Monday, Mayor Steve Worthington and City Council Member Caroline Belleci will help kick off the action on Sunday, Aug. 7 when they serve as honorary starters for the practice round.
The tournament will run through Sunday, Aug. 14, when the country’s top women amateurs hit the links for the 36-hole championship match. There are still some volunteer opportunities available for those who would like to be a part of the excitement. Visit chambersbaygolf.com for the details.
In addition to the field of competitors, it is anticipated that the week-long event will also attract many family members and fans. Please be patient in the area around the course as traffic may be slightly heavier than usual.
