The U.S. Women’s Open hits a major milestone this summer when the 75th edition plays out at Champions Golf Club in Houston. The tournament will be played June 4-7, and in anticipation of that, it’s time to start thinking about qualifying.

The USGA will hold qualifying at 25 courses (with four international sites among those) between April 21 and May 14. Any female professional or amateur can attempt qualifying, provided her Handicap Index does not exceed 2.4. Online applications will open Monday March 2.

Qualifiers are scheduled to be conducted internationally at sites in England, Japan, China and South Korea.

“The USGA is actively monitoring the situation in China as it pertains to the Coronavirus to ensure the health and safety of our competitors and officials,” said Julia Pine, senior manager, women’s championship communications. Any changes to the qualifying schedule will be communicated as soon as possible.”

Of the 21 qualifiers that will be played in the United States, California has the most sites with four, while Florida will host three.

The USGA received a record 1,873 entries for the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open, played at Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Last year, 1,552 women submitted entries to be part of the 156-player field.
