Alison Murdoch of Victoria, BC battled strong winds and an even stronger field to win the 26th Pacific Northwest Senior Women’s Amateur Championship conducted by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA) held at Victoria Golf Club in Victoria, BC. Competitors were treated to a scenic October week to remember at the historic golf club located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

This marks the second Pacific Northwest Senior Women’s Amateur Championship for Murdoch who won her first in 2005 at Yakima Country Club in Yakima, Wash.

Returning Champion and recent USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Champion, Terri Frohnmayer of Salem, Ore. finished runner-up for the second time in 3 years.

Carole Holm of Renton, Wash. becomes the first champion of the Pacific Northwest Super Senior Women’s Amateur Championship. Holm posted rounds of 83 and 87 for a two-day championship total of 26-over par 170.
