Win a chance to play with an LPGA Legend!
Registration is still open for 100 amateur women to sign up for the White Horse Golf Club Women’s Team Scramble in Kingston, Wash.
The event will feature 50 two-player teams and will be held Wednesday, June 6, to launch tournament-week events for the Suquamish Clearwater Legends Cup presented by Boeing. The LPGA Legends professional tournament is set for June 9-10, also at White Horse Golf Club.
Competition for the amateurs will begin with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Players in the team scramble format will compete for spots in the professional tournament pro-am on Friday, June 8. The low-gross and low-net team winners will form a foursome to play with a Legends Tour professional during the event’s official pro-am.
“We’re excited to kick the week off with this amateur women’s event,” said Jane Blalock, 27-time LPGA Tour champion and founder of The Legends Tour, official senior tour of the LPGA. “White Horse Golf Club is a spectacular venue and this is a rare opportunity for women amateurs to play the championship course before the LPGA Legends tee it up for their professional competition on the weekend.”
Female amateurs may enter the women’s team scramble for $125 per player, which includes greens fee, cart, range balls, contests and prizes, tournament gift, lunch and awards following play, as well as eight tickets to the Suquamish Clearwater Legends Cup presented by Boeing. In addition, Kinona Sport (www.kinonasport.com), featuring women’s golf apparel, will provide a “trunk show” following play.
“The White Horse Golf Club Women’s Team Scramble celebrates women and golf, adding to an already amazing experience that will surely be provided by the LPGA Legends coming to play in the Suquamish Clearwater Legends Cup,” said Chris Archunde, Director of Marketing for tournament title sponsor Suquamish-Port Madison Enterprises. “We’re thrilled to welcome women amateurs from all over the area to play our beautiful and challenging golf course and meet some of the greatest names in the history of the game.”
Women amateurs may enter the team scramble as a team or as individual players, who will be paired together. Deadline to enter the event is 5 p.m. EST, May 23.
