108th Southwestern Amateur
June 14-17, 2023
The 2023 Southwestern Amateur Men’s and Women’s Division Championships will be played June 14-17 at the Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The tournament returns to the Cochise course in 2023, which has hosted the championship several times. It is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses at Desert Mountain.
This will be the 108th year for the Men’s Division and the 3rd for the Women’s Division. The SWGA Selection Committee will select 72 Men and 72 Women to compete based upon playing resume and rankings. Invitations will be sent in late December to the top 200 WAGR ranked men, and the top 300 WAGR ranked women.
Entries to request an invitation will open on January 1. 2023 and close April 30, 2023. If the field is not filled by invited and exempt players by the closing date, our Selection Committee decides which entries will receive an invitation.
Once again it will be a 72-hole stroke play competition, with 36 holes in alternating morning and afternoon waves, followed by a cut. For the final two days there will be one morning wave.
Camille Boyd and Davis Bryant are the 2022 Southwestern Amateur champions
After 105 years as a men’s tournament, the Southwestern Amateur added a women’s championship in 2021. On Saturday, Camille Boyd became the 2nd Southwestern Women’s Amateur champion.
The soon-to-be junior at the University of Washington, who hails from Yorba Linda, Calif., carded a 69 on Saturday — her fourth consecutive score in the 60s — to seal a four-shot victory at 12 under par. She was the only player to break par in all four rounds.
“It’s a pretty prestigious event, and it feels nice to put my name on the trophy as just the second woman,” Boyd said.

In the Men’s Division, Davis Bryant came from three shots back with a final-round 68 to match Boyd’s winning total of 12 under and capture the biggest win of his amateur career. The soon-to-be fifth-year senior at Colorado State University edged out Gabe Salvanera of Arizona State by two shots.
“It was incredible. I’m so happy to have come out on top and be the champion today,” Bryant said.
