What do Oakmont, Pebble Beach, Baltusrol, Winged Foot, Pinehurst and Quail Creek Country Club have in common? In the spring of 2020, Quail Creek Country Club will join these clubs, along with 469 others as a host site for one of the 1,014 Championships the USGA has produced since its inception in 1894. Even though the USGA has existed for 125 years, Quail Creek Country Club will be hosting the first USGA Championship in Collier County in April of 2020 with the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball. 

The 6th U.S. Women’s Four-Ball Championship will showcase 64 two-person teams for stroke play, while only the low 32 teams will qualify for single elimination match play. Teams will be comprised of players of all ages and will showcase the top Amateurs in the game today. It has proven to be a fantastic event over its first five years and 2020 will be no exception. 

Hosting a USGA Championship is an honor and a privilege, but it is also an opportunity to give back to the game of golf. Golf makes an impact on anyone fortunate enough to play, teach or experience this great game in any shape or form. The ability to embrace what this game has given, and the opportunity to pass it along to others are two reasons the game of golf is unlike any other. As a Golf Professional, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the game, while showcasing our facility, Staff and most importantly our Members. 

Quail Creek Country Club should be extremely proud of their contribution to the game of golf and the honor of adding our name to the list of all those who have made the commitment before.
