Wichita Falls, TX — Next up on the Women’s All Pro Tour schedule is the beginning of series number four of the season. For the first tournament of the series, Wichita Falls Country Club will serve as the host of the first annual Wichita Falls Championship from June 11-14.
“The members of Wichita Falls are super excited to bring the WAPT to our club because it is new and unique,” said head professional Mark Greer. “We’ve hosted amateur events in the past, but nothing professional so this is special to us.”
Greeting the WAPT field in Wichita Falls, TX is an estimated purse of $45,000. Individuals will compete in a 72-holes stroke play format with a cut after 36 holes to the top 50 percent of the starting field, including ties. At conclusion of the tournament, players finishing in the top 35 percent will be awarded prize money. The winners share of the pie will be $7,500 guaranteed. In addition, top finishers in series IV will receive an exemption into the 2019 DCM PGA Women’s Championship of Canada, July 2-4 in Toronto.
“The community size is just perfect for it for the tournament, we don’t have pro sports, so we are excited to bring a professional tournament to the community,” said Greer. “We have Midwestern State University in town which will draw more attention to the event with possible future players being in attendance.”
Dr. Howard Farrell, Wichita Fall Country Club president said, “Wichita Falls Country Club is delighted to host the Women’s All Pro Tour. Our golf course, founded in 1914, delivers a challenge that necessitates the very high skills these ladies possess. We are prepared to create an environment on and off the course that highlights true Texas hospitality. We encourage our extended community and neighbors from across the state to join us to witness golf played at its highest level!”
Over 60 professional women from all over the world are expected to play in the Wichita Falls Championship. There will be a full slate of activities throughout the week including clinics, parties, and a pro-am tournament on Monday, June 10th. Attendance is free to the public.
