LIBERTY CORNER, New Jersey — Quail Creek Country Club, in Naples, Fla., has been selected as the host site for the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. Scheduled for April 25-29, the 6th U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball will be the club’s first USGA championship. In 2017, the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, originally scheduled to be held at Quail Creek, had to be relocated due to the impact of Hurricane Irma, which caused extensive flooding and damage to Quail Creek’s course and clubhouse.
“Since relocating the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, returning to Quail Creek has been a priority for the USGA,” said Rachel Sadowski, championship director. “We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with the club, as well as the vibrant golf community in Naples, and know they will be a terrific host.”
Designed in 1981 by Arthur Hills, who also renovated Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club, host site of the 2025 U.S. Open, Quail Creek features two 18-hole courses named Quail and Creek. The course for the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball will be announced at a later date.
