Delamere Forest Golf Club

Delamere Forest and Crail Golfing Society will host qualifying events for the 2024 AIG Women’s Open at St Andrews.

Pre-Qualifying will be played over 18 holes at Delamere Forest (above) in Cheshire on Sunday 28 July.

Final Qualifying will take place at Crail Golfing Society in Fife on Monday 19 August when, after 18 holes over the Craighead Course, a minimum of three golfers will earn a place in the AIG Women’s Open which will be staged between 21-25 August.

Delamere Forest, which was designed by Herbert Fowler, is a heathland course which features fast-running fairways with subtle yet challenging contouring and elevation changes. This will be the first time the Cheshire course will have staged Pre-Qualifying for the AIG Women’s Open.

Also playing host for the first time is Crail Golfing Society. Designed by Gil Hanse, the Craighead Course is inspired by its clifftop environment and ancient medieval walls which creates a challenging and unique layout.
