Nassau Country Club granted 2014 U.S. Women's Am
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
The USGA will return to Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove, N.Y., for the first time in 100 years for the 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur. Nassau previously hosted the 1903 U.S. Amateur and the 1914 U.S. Women’s Amateur.
Nassau originally was a nine-hole facility when it was organized in 1894. It was moved to its present site in 1899, then in 1944 Seth Raynor began an extensive renovation and lengthening process. The most recent changes to the course were made in 2007, when Cynthia Dye McGarey made bunker renovations and other revisions.
“Hosting the 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur on the 100th anniversary of the championship first being contested at Nassau will be a major milestone for the club and the USGA,” said Nassau Country Club President John Caliolo. “Since its inception, Nassau has been steadfast in its commitment to championship golf and the USGA’s ‘For the good of the game’ effort. We are very excited to have the opportunity to add a new chapter to Nassau’s storied history.”
The 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur will be played Aug. 11-17.
