Oct 16  | PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.– The EWGA (Executive Women’s Golf Association), the largest women-focused national amateur golf association in the United States is pleased to announce the 2015 EWGA Championship Finals will be held at the Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, California on Oct. 30-31. 

Celebrating its 20th year, the EWGA Championship is one of the largest women’s amateur golf competitions in the nation for all skill levels, including stroke play competition and team scramble competition.  More than 2,500 EWGA members participated in local qualifying events and advanced to one of 15 semi-final championships held throughout the summer.  This year 224 members from 78 EWGA Chapters in 36 states, Canada and Bermuda have advanced to the EWGA Championship Finals, a two-day, 36-hole event held at the Troon-managed Westin Mission Hills.    

"We are excited to bring the 2015 EWGA Championship Finals to the Westin Mission Hills as we celebrate 20 years of hosting a tournament of this magnitude,” said EWGA CEO Pam Swensen.  “The competitors in all five flights will enjoy the Pete Dye and Gary Player courses, in addition to the other events surrounding the Championship, including the Champions dinner and a special Halloween-themed welcome reception.  The EWGA Championship is one way our association supports our mission of connecting women to learn, play and enjoy golf for business and for fun.”

The Westin Mission Hills was selected due to the EWGA’s long-standing partnership with Troon, the leader in golf course management, development and marketing.  Utilizing Troon-managed facilities for the EWGA Championship, EWGA Cup and the EWGA Par 3 Challenge has been positive, due to the quality of golf courses, plus the outstanding level of customer service experienced at Troon properties.
