Everything is set for one of the best Nevada State Women’s Amateur events in history. A quality field (the championship field is very strong), a quality course (Jack Nicklaus’ Reflection Bay) and more is set for July 18-19, but there is still time to get in on the action.
According to SNGA executive director Ann Sunstrum, a few coveted spots remain and a focus is on the Silver State division, where any golfer with a handicap under 36 is eligible to compete for gross and net prizes and trophies.
In a first, Reflection Bay is hosting both the men’s and women’s state amateur tournaments in the same year.
“A state amateur is the pinnacle of amateur golf in whatever state it is played, and it’s a privilege for our ownership, staff and course to host both the men and women in 2020,” says Eric Dutt, Reflection Bay general manager and the 1976 Nevada State Amateur men’s champion. “As far as I know, this is the first time they have been played at the same course in the same year and basically back to back. I really thought this would be a cool thing to do and we will do everything we can to elevate the experience for the players.”
