The R&A has announced further changes to its schedule of amateur championships and international matches including a revised date for the Curtis Cup.
Due to the COVID-29 pandemic the Curtis Cup has been rescheduled from June 12 to 14 2020 to take place September 3 to 5 2021 at Conwy, Wales.
Meanwhile, The Women’s Amateur Championship has also had a change of venue and will now be played at West Lancashire from August 25 to 29 instead of Kilmarnock (Barassie). The Ayrshire venue will now host the 2021 championship from June 8 to 12.
Sadly the The R&A Girls’ Amateur, Boys’ Amateur and Women’s Senior Amateur championships have been cancelled with only the Amateur Championship will be played at Royal Birkdale from August 25 to 30.
Duncan Weir, Executive Director of Golf Development and Amateur Championships at The R&A, said:
"We have been working hard to make sure we can deliver The Amateur and Women’s Amateur championships in August in as safe a manner as possible for players and officials. With that in mind, we plan to stage both championships at neighbouring venues in the north west of England so we can concentrate our resources in one area.
“We look forward to staging these great championships which will provide an opportunity for the leading players to compete at the highest level and, if eligible, stake their claims for places in the Walker and Curtis cups as well as other international matches next year.
“We are also delighted to confirm the dates for the Curtis Cup match and look forward to welcoming the players of both teams to Conwy in 2021.”
