JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Nov. 22, 2023) – The Missouri Golf Association will host the Women’s Senior Amateur Championship and Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship concurrently in the 2024 season. These events will take place at Sunset Country Club in St. Louis from Aug. 28-29, 2024.
The Mid-Amateur will be open to female MGA members aged 25 or older, and the Senior Amateur will be open to female MGA members aged 50 or older.
“The MGA is excited to announce that our Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship and Senior Amateur Championship will be held at Sunset Country Club this year,” MGA Director of Competitions Michelle Parrish said. “Sunset Country Club is one of the best venues in the STL area and we can’t wait to crown our champions there in August.”
Players who are eligible for both tournaments will be able to compete in them simultaneously.
“After careful consideration, we believe combining these events will be great for our female golfers throughout the state!” said Parrish.
Women aged 50 or older will have the option to enter both the Mid-Amateur and Senior Amateur. Women aged 25 and older, but younger than 50, are only eligible for the Mid-Amateur.
Within each championship, there will be a Championship Division and Open Division.

The Missouri Golf Association is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote the best interests and true spirit of the game of golf throughout the State of Missouri. The Missouri Golf Association was started in St. Louis in 1905 to run the Amateur Championship. Four founding clubs would be the ones in existence in St. Louis in those early years – St. Louis Country Club, Algonquin Golf Club, Glen Echo Golf Club and Normandie Golf Club. Four years later, the invite-only Missouri Amateur was held in Kansas City at Evanston Club. 1911 marked the real organization of the MGA with Bonner Miller as Secretary and Executive Director. Ever since then, the MGA has striven to provide tournaments and spaces for Missouri golfers to sharpen their skills and enjoy the game.
