SPRINGBORO, OH – The Southern Ohio PGA is set to host the 2024 Ohio Women’s Open at Heatherwoode Golf Club in Springboro, OH. The 18-hole public facility recently agreed to be the host site of the championship for five years beginning in 2024. The Ohio Women’s Open will be hosted Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, 2024 with a fundraising Pro Am being hosted the day prior to the championship, June 6, 2024.

“We are thrilled and honored to have been given this opportunity to host the Ohio Women’s Open,” noted Heatherwoode Golf Club General Manager Tom West. “Our course here at Heatherwoode Golf Club will prove to be a challenge for all participants and we are eager to showcase our wonderful course conditions. The community of Springboro is a wonderful place for such an event, with the amenities of a city but the welcoming charm of a small town. On behalf of The City of Springboro and Heatherwoode Golf Club, thank you and we look forward to years of hosting such a fantastic event.”

The Ohio Women’s Open has been hosted for nearly two decades at Eagle Rock Golf Course in Defiance, OH. The Southern Ohio PGA agreed to purchase the tournament in early 2023 and has been working on creating a sustainable future for the historic event. The list of champions includes Lisa Strom, an Ohio State University alum who captured the title three times. Strom currently serves as the Women’s Golf Head Coach at her alma mater. Other notable champions include former Ohio State University golfer Jessica Porvasnik and former University of North Carolina golfer Allie White.

“We are honored to carry on the tradition of the Ohio Women’s Open,” noted Tom Bach, President of the Southern Ohio PGA. “We made it a priority in 2021 to make a larger impact on our community through women’s golf and when the opportunity to carry on the torch for this tournament came, we were ready.”

The championship will be hosted the first week of June to provide an opportunity for as many participants as possible to play in the event. 

“We are looking forward to hosting the championship not only in 2024 but into the future,” noted Southern Ohio PGA Executive Director Patrick Salva. “We’re actively looking for support from the community to make sure our championship attracts a large field while also investing in the local Springboro community and the game of golf across the state.”

In addition to the Pro Am and the Championship, the event will feature a community clinic for girls and women in the Springboro and surrounding community that are interested in the game. The clinic will run from 3:00pm to 6:00pm on Friday, June 7, 2024. Registration for the clinic is available on the Southern Ohio PGA website and by clicking here

The community will also have the opportunity to get involved with the new event through a variety of open volunteer positions assisting with score collection, on-course marshals, player registration, hospitality and rules officials.
