Berkeley Hall is proud to announce that the golf course there will play host to the 2020 US Women's Mid-Amateur Championship, from August 27 to September 3.
The tournament is well regarded nationally for bringing together some of the top amateur players from across the southeast. The 34th Women's Mid-Amateur Championship will be the third USGA championship hosted by Bluffton's presitgious club, after both the Men's and Women's USGA State Team championships back in 2005.
Rich Forde has agreed to sign on as the Championship General Chairman, along with Adam Kushner, who will be serving as the Championship Director.
About the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship
The tournament was first put on back in 1987. It's open to all female amateurs over the age of 25 with a Handicap Index® of no more than 9.4. The event is set to attract 132 players who will take part in two rounds of stroke play; the field will then be cut to the low 64 for match play.
A friend to amateur golf since its founding, the USGA is thrilled to bring the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur to Berkeley Hall Club and Bluffton for the first time in 2020. We are confident the course will provide a challenging test of golf, and know the club and community will deliver a memorable experience for all involved.

Berkeley Hall Golf Club
The two courses that make up the Berkeley Hall Golf Club can be found on the stunning 980-acre grounds of Berkeley Hall Club, among the premier golf communities in South Carolina. The North and South courses were both designed by noted course designer Tom Fazio, taking inspiration from the classic course layouts of the 1920s.
The two courses take golfers on a wonderful journey through enchanting woodlands and enchanting views of the Okatie River.
