Northwest Women’s Open will make a return to Twin Lakes

Updated: March 5, 2013

Some of the top women club professionals from around the country will converge at Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club in Federal Way for the Northwest Women’s Open.

The three-day event will be held July 15-17 and will feature top women club professionals and as well as some of the top women amateurs from around the Pacific Northwest. The event is open to both professionals and amateurs.

The purse for the event will be $20,000 with $4,000 going to the winner of the 2013 event.

The tournament will feature the Nike Pro-Am to kick off the three-day event. The Monday Nike Pro-Am will include many of the professionals from the tournament playing with a team of three amateur partners.

The Northwest Women’s Open comes on the heels of Twin Lakes hosting the Washington State Golf Association’s Women’s Amateur in June, and many of the top amateurs in the event will be invited to take part in the Northwest Women’s Open as well.

The event will also feature the Cusack Cup, a competition between U.S. and international players playing in a Ryder Cup-style format before the Pro-Am.
