2017 RDGA Women's Open at Irondequoit to Celebrate Women's Golf in Rochester

Written by Dave Eaton. Posted in News

One of six Donald Ross-designed golf courses in Rochester, the historic Irondequoit Country Club first opened in 1916 - will host the 2017 RDGA Women's Open on Monday, September 11.
 
The Rochester District Golf Association is excited to announce that Irondequoit Country Club will be hosting the fourth annual RDGA Women's Open this year - bringing together women golfers of all abilities in the spirit of competition and cameraderie!
 
Scheduled for Monday, September 11, the 2017 RDGA Women's Open is an event for all women who have an active USGA-GHIN Handicap Index. The format will consist of 18 holes of stroke play - with multiple flights, so that players will be competing against other players of similar abilities. The 2017 Women's Open will be contested from Irondequoit CC's Yellow Tees at 5,436 yards and a par of 74.

There will be an overall Low Net Score winner and Overall Gross Score winner. Each will receive a trophy to display at their home clubs for the next year - and, along with Net Score Flight winners, will earn points towards the RDGA Women's Player of the Year award, to be announced at the end of the season. Flight winners' prizes will be awarded to approximately 1/4 of the field.

As host of this year's RDGA Women's Open, Irondequoit Country Club offers an 18-hole private championship golf course - one of six Donald Ross-designed golf courses in the Rochester area.

An entry fee of $100 for the 2017 RDGA Women's Open includes:

  • A unique tee gift
  • 18 holes of golf at Brook-Lea Country Club, with use of the practice range and cart
  • A box lunch provided before the 12:30 p.m. shotgun start
  • A full, post-tournament dinner - contestants are welcome to bring a guest!
  • A Savvy Girl Golf Signature Golf Purse will be awarded to the winner of the RDGA Women's Open
  • Trophies awarded to the tournament low gross and low net winners
  • Multiple flights, based on 100-percent USGA-GHIN Handicaps
