Golf Capital of Tennessee Women's Open Championship


Event History


The Tennessee Women's Open Championship was first held in 1999 at GreyStone Golf Club in Dickson.  After five years at GreyStone, the event moved to the city of Crossville, the Golf Capital of Tennessee.  With support from the city, Crossville has been host to the championship for ten years--5 years at the Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain and 5 years at Stonehenge Golf Club, and Crossville will play title sponsor and host to the event through 2015.  Originally, the event was 36-holes of stroke play, but expanded to 54-holes in 2007.  


The event attracts the best female professionals and amateurs from across the country.  In 2014, the Golf Capital of Tennessee welcomed participants from 19 different states (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana,  Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia). We look forward to once again welcoming a talented and diverse field to Stonehenge for the 2015 event.
