Tacoma Country and Golf Club to host Senior Women’s Open

Updated: October 1, 2022

Tacoma Country and Golf Club will find itself in the national golf spotlight once again as the United States Golf Association (USGA) has named the course to host the U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship Aug. 19-22., 2027.

Other courses named as hosts for upcoming U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championships include Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, Pa. and San Diego Country Club, in Chula Vista, Calif.

Tacoma Country & Golf Club was founded in 1894 by a group of Scotsmen and Englishmen who sought to play the game of their homeland. By 1896, the original 18-hole course and an additional nine-hole course were built on pastureland. Tacoma Country & Golf Club was one of the founding clubs of the Pacific Northwest Golf Association, the fifth-oldest golf association in North America.  The 9th U.S. Senior Women’s Open will be the club’s fifth USGA championship.

It has previously hosted the 1961 U.S. Women’s Amateur, won by Washington native Anne Quast Sander; the 1984 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur, won by Constance Guthrie; and the 1994 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur. Most recently, the club hosted the 2007 U.S. Girls’ Junior, won by Kristen Park.
