Something special is happening at Mistwood Golf Club this week: The Women’s Western Golf Association’s (WWGA) 118th National Amateur Championship. Founded in 1901, the WWGA is one of the oldest golf associations in the United States and typically hosts their championships at private courses. Even though Mistwood is a public course, they offer a private experience, and that may be why they were able to buck the private trend.
“We’re tremendously honored to hosts this tournament in Romeoville,” said Mayor John Noak. “I think the WWGA picking Mistwood is a testament to the high quality of the course and facilities.”
The tournament brings in players from 55 different colleges and universities, representing 25 states and 9 countries, including Australia, China, and Argentina. There are 120 players in total. The event runs from June 25-30 and spectators are welcome.
