Qualifier open to area women
The Geneva National Foundation, organizers of the Aurora Health Care Championship, will host the Aurora Health Care Championship Amateur Qualifier on Tuesday, May 27, 2008, at Geneva National Golf Club - Palmer Course, the site of the LPGA's May 30-June 1 Duramed FUTURES event.
Any woman amateur living within 100 miles of Geneva National and who has a USGA handicap of 5 or less is eligible to compete in the open Qualifier.
The 18-hole Qualifier will begin at 9 a.m. and the golfers with the lowest two scores in that event will earn playing positions in the $100,000 Aurora Health Care Championship.
There is no entry fee for the qualifier, and players can apply by calling the Tournament Office at (262) 245-1398. Entries will be accepted through Tuesday, May 20.
"This is an opportunity for two area amateurs to compete in an LPGA event in front of family and friends. This is our third year of hosting the amateur qualifier, and we expect another highly-competitive event that will kick off a week of women's championship golf," said Howard Storck, Tournament Director.
