For only the 1st time in 82 years, weather has forced the cancellation of our State Women’s Amateur Championship.

The unprecedented rains that have been impacting the entire Central Illinois region have rendered Illini Country Club unplayable for at least the next several days.  Continuing rain in the forecast well into next week has forced the decision to cancel the Championship as we are unable to foresee a window of time where play can be conducted to determine a proper champion.

Therefore, we are declaring the 2015 Illinois State Women’s Amateur Championship as cancelled and we will not be declaring a Champion this year.

We did have some fine play during our qualifying round on Tuesday with Shawn Rennegarbe from Addieville taking the overall Medalist honors and Jessica Yuen from Bollingbrook being awarded our Junior Medalist.

Thanks to all the players for being patient with a tough week and for the staff of Illini Country Club for their expertise and hard work to give our championship every chance to be conducted.

We hope to see everyone next year at Forest Hills Country Club in Rockford June 14-17, 2016.

Illinois Women’s Golf Association

Founded in 1933, the IWGA is an all-volunteer organization devoted to advancing golf opportunities for the women and girls of Illinois by conducting state championship tournaments and through fundraising to support charitable contributions to individual and organizations that embody the spirit of amateur golf.

In addition to running three state championship tournaments each year, the all-volunteer IWGA, through its charitable giving, actively supports women and girl golfers of all ages and skill levels through our Victory Endowment Fund.  Annual contributions include grants to women’s golf teams in Illinois colleges, stipends to USGA Junior qualifiers and State Team members.  The IWGA also honors a Junior golfer of outstanding character, scholarship, and sportsmanship with the prestigious Julia Dodd Junior Award.  Funding for these and other charitable contributions comes primarily from clubs and associations sponsoring an annual Victory Tournament.  Grants totaled more than $28,000 in 2009 with total contributions from the IWGA Victory Fund surpassing $1,000,000.
