Bandon, Ore. – The United States Golf Association (USGA) announced Monday that Bandon Dunes Golf Resort has been chosen to host the inaugural U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. The event, which will be held April 30 – May 6, 2015 at the resort’s Bandon Dunes Course, replaces the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links and is the USGA’s first new championship since 1995.

“On behalf of the staff and caddies at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, we are honored to host the inaugural U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship,” said Bandon Dunes owner Mike Keiser. “The four-ball format is the most popular among our resort guests and amateurs alike, and we are excited to bring it to a USGA championship.”

Entries for the qualifier will be open to female amateur golfers with a USGA handicap index no greater than 14.4. Qualifying events will be held at multiple sites around the United States, with 64 two-woman teams advancing to Bandon Dunes. The championship format is 36 holes of best-ball stroke play, with the top 32 teams advancing to a match-play bracket.

The 2015 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship will be the fifth USGA championship conducted at Bandon Dunes. In 2011, Bandon Dunes hosted the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship for men and women, the first time the two championships were held simultaneously at the same venue. Bandon Dunes also hosted the 2006 Curtis Cup and 2007 U.S. Mid-Amateur.
