30th Women's Amateur Stroke Play Heads to Aberdeen

July 1, 2024

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - The 30th Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship is set to begin July 5-7. The championship is a 54-hole individual gross stroke play competition where 84 women will compete for the victory. This year, Aberdeen Golf and Country Club will play host. Located in Boynton Beach, Aberdeen G&CC features an 18 holes designed by Jim Fazio. As most traditional Florida courses, Aberdeen displays beautiful views with water visible on almost every hole, and palm trees and bunkers are strewed amongst the fairways and landscape of the course.    

Let’s take a sneak peek into the field of this championship. Over 20 players were exempt into the event including past champion, Elle Nachmann. Nachmann won the even in 2021 with rounds of 70-68-76. She has also captured four other FSGA wins and secured a runner-up finish at the 93rd Women’s Amateur championship. Nachmann is looking to add Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Champion to her resume this year.

 In addition, Kate Bibby who advanced to the Semifinals of the 95th Women’s Amateur in June, will be competing at Aberdeen for a chance to raise the trophy. Also in the field is the two-time Women’s Mid-Amateur champion, Ashley Zagers. So far this season, Zagers captured a fourth place finish at the 77th Women’s International Four-Ball with partner, Meghan Stasi, as well as a third place finish at the Women’s Four-Ball with partner, Bianca Sol Cruz.

Finally, it is important to note that One Kashima is set to tee it up at Aberdeen on July 5. Kashima recently captured a runner-up finish at the 95th Women’s Amateur championship. The rising University of North Florida Sophomore glided through match play until she arrived in the Championship match against Sophia Dyer. Even though Kashima took the early lead which she held for most of the round, Dyer staged a dramatic comeback in which Kashima ultimately fell short of the win on the 18th hole. Moreover, Kashima captured another second place finish this summer at the Women’s Four-Ball Championship with partner, Hibiki Adachi I. Falling short to victory twice this season, Kashima is hungry for a win as she prepares for this championship.

Don’t forget to follow along with live scoring as it is sure to be an exciting event! As always, our fields are stacked with talented players, each with impressive resumes and a story of their own. This is simply a glimpse into the field as you will have to keep an eye on the leaderboard to see who comes out on top.
