WOODMONT COUNTRY CLUB HONORED TO HOST THE
2020 U.S. WOMEN'S AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
On November 3, 2017 the USGA publicly announced Woodmont Country Club as its choice to host the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.
This is an exciting time for Woodmont having been selected for the prestigious honor.
While the Club has hosted several premier golf tournaments in the past—including 30 U.S. Open sectional qualifiers—this will be Woodmont’s first time
hosting a U.S. Golf
Association (USGA) championship.
Considered the most prestigious event in all of women's amateur golf, the U.S. Amateur boasts an impressive roster of players.
The 2020 U.S. Women's Amateur will be held at Woodmont Country Club from August 3-9, 2020.

2018 USGA Women's Amateur Championship was hosted at The Golf Club of Tennessee in Nashville
Our championship golf course, the North Course, is the original 18 hole course in Rockville, and was designed and constructed by Course Architect Alfred Tull with input and assistance from Woodmont member Leopold Freudberg and Greens Superintendent Rudy Will. Its Grand Opening was on July 26, 1950 and it has played to rave reviews ever since.
In 1999, the North Course went through an extensive renovation, including replacement of the original 18 greens. The renovation was done by renowned Course Architect Arthur Hills. In the early 1950’s our golf courses also included a challenging 9 hole, par 3 course with holes ranging from 120 to 230 yards, known as the “Iron Duke”.
In August of 1957, a fourth 9 hole course opened. The “Iron Duke” was eventually converted into a regulation 9 hole course, was combined with the other 9 holes, and premiered on Labor Day of 1961 as the South Course that we enjoy today.
Over the years, our courses have hosted many special golf events including the 1953 National Celebrities Tournament, then a regular event on the Professional Tour. Participants included such legends as Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Cary Middlecoff, Lew Worsham and the winner Ted Kroll. For many years, we have also hosted regional qualifying for the Men’s and Ladies United States Open Golf Championships, as well as all of the various championships of each of the local golf associations both Amateur and Professional. These events serve as a constant testament to the test of golf and conditioning of our courses.
