25th Women’s Partnership Match Play set for April 15-17

Addison – The 25th Women’s Partnership Match Play is heading to River Crossing Club in Spring Branch, Texas for the first time. The three-day tournament is the second tournament on the Women’s Calendar for the 2024 season.

“We are excited to bring this event to River Crossing Club,” shared Director of Women’s Golf Kristi Knight. “River Crossing is a great course that is well known in the San Antonio and Hill Country area, and we think the Women are going to enjoy playing there. This is an event we are used to seeing a great turnout and we have a Titleist rep coming out for the event as part of a relationship we can’t wait to grow with the Texas Golf Association.”

River Crossing Club is set in Spring Branch, Texas just north of San Antonio. With panoramic views of the Hill Country, River Crossing Club is an 18-hole championship course designed by Larry Hawkins that opened in 2001. The course stretches just over 6,700 yards from the back tees and features a perfect balance of challenge and forgiveness that provides enjoyable play for all golfers.

The Women’s Partnership Match Play is a 45-hole Round Robin Net Four-Ball Match Play. Two competitors play as partners in a 9-hole match against two other competitors playing as partners, with each player playing her own ball. The lowest net score of the partners is the score for the hole. Each hole will be worth 2 points, and a tie will be worth 1 point. The team with the most points after the 45 holes will be the flight winner.

The 24th Women’s Partnership Match Play took place at the Hideout Golf Club & Retreat in Brownwood, Texas. Karen Northcutt of The Woodlands and Lettia Collins of Midland won the first flight with 54 points. This was Northcutt’s and Collins’ second consecutive year to win the first flight. Mary Ann Knipe of Garland and Lindy Fox of Rockwall won the second flight with 51 points. Katherine Biggs of Houston and Lorraine Werner of The Woodlands claimed the third flight after finishing with 54 points. Cindy Campbell of Willow Park and Vicki Jordan of Lipan won the fourth flight after scoring 55 points.
