The Augusta National Women’s Amateur was announced in April 2018 by Chairman Fred Ridley during his annual press conference at the Masters Tournament. The event was established to inspire greater interest and participation in the women’s game by creating a new, exciting and rewarding pathway for these players to fulfill their dreams.

Champions Retreat Golf Club, located 15 miles from Augusta National Golf Club, has had the great honor of hosting the first 36 holes over two days on Arnold Palmer’s Island nine and Jack Nicklaus’ Bluff nine for the entirety of the tournament’s history. The first two rounds take place on Wednesday and Thursday, with the entire field then playing at Augusta National for an official practice round on Friday. The final round takes place at Augusta National on Saturday, featuring the top 30 competitors who made the cut.

During the inaugural year in 2019, Jennifer Kupcho, the world’s top-ranked amateur, played her final six holes in five under par, including an eagle on the par-five 13th at Augusta National, to become the champion.

The 2020 championship was canceled due to the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Seventeen-year-old Tsubasa Kajitani became the first international ANWA champion and the first winner from Japan at Augusta National in any tournament with her playoff victory over Wake Forest’s Emilia Migliaccio in 2021.

In her first appearance at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, 16-year old Anna Davis became the event’s youngest champion in 2022 by shooting a 3-under 69 to finish at 1 under and win by a single stroke.

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur will be held in 2022, with the first 36 holes again contested over two days on the Island and Bluff nines at Champions Retreat on March 30 and 31, 2022. The entire field will then play Augusta National for an official practice round Friday, April 1. The final round will take place at Augusta National on Saturday, April 2.
