(AP) FAR HILLS, N.J. - The United States Golf Association says the 2016 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship will be held at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Pa., outside Philadelphia.
The William Flynn design will be hosting its second USGA championship. The club was the site of the 1976 U.S. Women’s Open. In that championship, JoAnne Carner beat defending champ Sandra Palmer by two strokes in an 18-hole playoff. It was Carner’s second Open title and eighth overall USGA crown, the most by a female.
The course, opened in 1926, will be celebrating its 90th anniversary the year of the Women’s Amateur.
The 2013 Women’s Amateur will be held in August at the Country Club of Charleston in South Carolina, and in 2014, the championship is headed to Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N.Y. The 2015 site has not been announced.
