Timuquana Country Club, in Jacksonville, Fla., has been selected by the United States Golf Association as the host site for the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship.
To be held April 27-May 1, 2019, the event will be the second USGA championship to be contested at Timuquana.
“We look forward to returning to Timuquana Country Club for the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship and sincerely appreciate the club’s enthusiasm for hosting this popular event,” said Stuart Francis, USGA Championship Committee chairman. “We’re confident Timuquana will provide a comprehensive test that will produce worthy champions while continuing to elevate the fun-spirited and competitive nature inherent to this team championship.”
Designed in 1923 by Donald Ross against the backdrop of the St. Johns River, the course was renovated in the mid-1950s by Robert Trent Jones Jr., with subsequent alterations by George Cobb and Dave Gordon. In 1996, Bobby Weed led another major renovation that improved drainage and irrigation. Among other changes, more than 800 trees were removed, helping to restore the course to its original design. Additionally, in 2011, the course was re-grassed and the No. 11 green was reshaped.
Timuquana hosted the 2002 U.S. Senior Amateur, won by Greg Reynolds, of Grand Blanc, Mich., who defeated Mark Bemowski, 4 and 3. Reynolds has since moved to Jacksonville and is an active Timuquana member. The club has also hosted several USGA qualifiers, including five U.S. Amateur sectional qualifiers. It will host its first U.S. Open sectional qualifier on June 6. Timuquana has also hosted the Southern Amateur and Florida State Amateur.
