The R&A has announced a revised schedule for its amateur championships and international matches in 2021.
Kicking off the R&A's events for the women's game is the R&A Girls’ U16 Amateur Championship at Enville from April 23 to 25.
Other highlights for women's golf include The Women’s Amateur Championship at Kilmarnock from June 7 to 12, before the women's senior amateur championships at Ashridge from July 7 to 9.
For the first time, a consolidated series of home international matches for boys and girls, women, senior men and women will take place at one venue, with Woodhall Spa hosting the matches from August 4 to 6.
Then we get to the rearranged Curtis Cup, one of the biggest events on the amateur calendar at Conwy from August 26 to 28.
Phil Anderton, Chief Development Officer at The R&A, said, “We have considered a range of factors in revising our schedule of amateur championships and international matches and are grateful to all of the venues for their support and understanding to allow us to make these changes.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to stage these events as planned but we recognise that the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic still remains uncertain and will adapt our plans in line with the guidance provided by governments and our medical advisers.”
