The tradition of women’s golf continues at the historic Biltmore Forest Country Club, as we are honored to have been selected as the venue for the 2013 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship. Beginning in 1922 with Edith and Cornelia Vanderbilt’s financial investments and visionary leadership of Biltmore Forest Country Club, women’s golf has remained a key element of the club. The 27th Women’s Mid-Amateur in October follows by 14 years the playing of the 1999 U.S. Women’s Amateur on the Donald Ross-designed course carved into the rolling hills and verdant woods just south of Asheville.
This event is one of the 13 annual national championships conducted by the USGA, and this selection places Biltmore Forest Country Club in the category of “Championship Courses.” The tradition of pure, quality golf will be evident at this second USGA championship conducted at Biltmore Forest. A field of 132 amateur players of at least 25 years of age with a USGA Handicap Index® of 9.4 or lower will make this event for the post-college player an experience to remember.
