Tennessee Women's Senior Amateur Championship


Event History


The Tennessee Women's Senior Amateur Championship began at 1979 in order to offer an opportunity for the senior women amateurs in the state to enjoy competition.  The first championship was hosted at Lookout Mountain Golf & Country Club, and Chattanooga's Alice Lupton won the inaugural event.


Although the event has had several champions claim the title multiple times, in 2013, Maggie Scott won her ninth Women's Senior Amateur Championship.  In addition to her Women's Senior Amateur titles in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2010, Scott also has one Women's Amateur title from 1994 making her win at Ridgeway in 2013 her tenth Tennessee title overall.  With her ten state titles, Scott passes Betty Probasco as the all-time leader of women's amateur wins in the state.  Probasco set the bar at nine amateur state titles--comprised of eight Women's Amateur championship victories across four decades and one Women's Senior Amateur in 1980.
