Hershey (Pa.) Country Club will host the 2012 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, the U.S. Golf Association announced Thursday.

The championship, which will be played on Hershey’s West Course, will be contested Sept. 8-13.

This will be the first national championship conducted at the club. In 1940, Hershey Country Club hosted the PGA Championship, which was won by Byron Nelson.

The USGA Senior Women’s Amateur is the national championship for female amateurs age 50 and older.

The event will be held in 2010 at Fiddlesticks Country Club in Fort Myers, Fla., and in 2011 at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn.
