Women’s amateur golf has been growing quickly, especially in the last decade. The players are better, and the pool is deeper. Events are popping up around the country to help the wealth of women’s amateur players compete on great courses against strong fields. 

In an effort to create some continuity, the Women’s Elite Amateur Series was announced in January. It will launch in the summer of 2024. The intention of this series, which mirrors the Men’s EAGS, is designed to bring the best women amateurs together more regularly.

Of the events selected, the Southwestern Women’s Amateur is one of the youngest. 2021 marked the inaugural tournament.
