The Broadmoor To Host 2011 U.S. Women's OpenJune 27, 2007E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Far Hills, N.J. (June 27, 2007) - The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., has been selected by the United States Golf Association as the site of the 2011 U.S. Women's Open Championship. The dates of the championship are July 7-10.
Donald Ross designed the original 18-hole course in 1918. In 1958, Robert Trent Jones Sr. completed the design for another nine holes and finished a second 18-hole course incorporating the Ross holes in 1965. The final layout has resulted in a combination of Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones designs on each course.
It will be the second U.S. Women's Open at The Broadmoor. Annika Sorenstam recorded her first professional victory at the 1995 championship at the club. The Broadmoor has also hosted the 1982 U.S. Women's Amateur (won by Juli Inkster), the 1959 and 1967 U.S. Amateurs (won by Jack Nicklaus and Bob Dickson, respectively) and the 1962 Curtis Cup Match, which was won by the USA.
The club will also host the 2008 U.S. Senior Open Championship.
The U.S. Women's Open will be making its third stop in the state of Colorado. In addition to the 1995 championship held at The Broadmoor, the 2005 Women's Open was conducted at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colo.
