Elite women tee off in Pitt

Pitt Meadows Golf Club is hosting the most talented female golfers in the province this week

Pitt Meadows Golf Club is hosting the most talented female golfers in the province this week, June 25-28, for the 2013 B.C. Golf Women’s Amateur and Mid-Amateur Championships.

Pitt Meadows Golf Club will be tested by an incredibly strong field of female golfers, all vying for their chance to be crowned the Flumerfelt Cup recipient as Amateur champion.

This year’s Women’s Amateur Championship features one of the strongest fields in recent years, with a number of legitimate title favourites prior to the beginning of play.

Team Canada National Squad member and recent San Diego State University graduate Christine Wong of Richmond will arrive at Pitt Meadows GC with the intention of defending her record-setting 2012 title.

Fellow Team Canada member Jisoo Keel of Coquitlam is playing great golf in 2013 and is preparing to head to Stanford University to play on the women’s golf team in the fall.

Team Canada also has a number of Development Squad members in the field including Taylor Kim of Surrey, Naomi Ko of Victoria and Langley’s Kathy Lim who would all love to add their name to the illustrious list of past competitors who have won the Women’s Amateur Championship.

Wailuku, Hawaii’s Cassy Isagawa jumped out to a single-stroke lead in pouring rain on Tuesday.

The top-3 competitors from the British Columbia Women’s Amateur Championship will be selected to represent Team BC at the 2013 Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship being hosted by the Club de golf Beloeil from July 23-26 in Beloeil, Que.

Spectator are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
