54th Annual California Women's
Pasatiempo Golf Club
Santa Cruz, CA
CWAC President Yole Whitlock and Tom Bone, 2018 NCGA President, meet to sign an agreement between CWAC and the CGA.
We at CWAC are excited to announce that the Committee for the California Women’s Amateur Championships (CWAC) has entered an agreement with the California Golf Association (CGA) that results in the CGA adding the California Women's Amateur Championship and the California Senior Women's Amateur Championship to its roster of state championships beginning in 2019.
In 2020, the two Championships will begin rotating between Northern and Southern California in order to capture a larger audience of qualified players. Additionally, beginning this year, the Senior Women’s Amateur Championship will adopt a new format, so please be sure to check out the Senior Women's page of our website for more information.
The CWAC Championships were founded by Helen Lengfeld, a renowned amateur golfer, humanitarian and philanthropist. The first California Women's Amateur Championship was played at Pebble Beach Golf Links in 1967. The Senior Women's Amateur Championship was first played in 1979 at Del Monte Golf Club in Monterey. CWAC is made up entirely of volunteers, and we see this agreement with the CGA as a way to ensure the longevity of Helen Lengfeld's legacy and to increase statewide participation in these events. CWAC will work closely with the CGA to ensure the success of this agreement. We will continue to sponsor and run the California Junior Girls' State Championship, which will celebrate its 70th year in 2019. Click here to read the new format changes for the Junior.
The California Golf Association was formed in 1912 between the Northern California Golf Association and the Southern California Golf Association to promote and organize state-wide championships, and therefore, it is a natural fit for the CGA to bring aboard the CWAC State Championships.
We are very excited about the future of our Women's and Senior Women's State Championships!
