Sandy Lodge Golf Club will host the 2014 English Senior Women’s Amateur Championships at the end of this month.

The competition, which is open to female amateur golfers over the age of 50, will be played from April 22 until April 25.

A 36-hole stroke-play tournament is held over two days with the lowest 16 scorers then qualifying for the knock-out stage. A further separate match play event for the next 16 players is also held.

In 2015 the Northwood club begins a five-year period as a regional qualifying venue for the world’s top championship, The Open.
