Monterey Peninsula Country Club, in Pebble Beach, has been selected by the USGA as the host site of the 2025 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship. Scheduled for Oct. 4-9, the 38th U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur will be played on the club’s Dunes Course. It will be the fifth USGA championship held at the club and the first since 1976.

“We are thrilled to announce our return to Monterey Peninsula Country Club for the U.S. Women’s Mid-Am,” said Tracy Parsons, championship director. “Players will enjoy the challenging layout and stellar views as they compete for a coveted USGA title and a place in the 2026 U.S. Women’s Open Championship.”

Located in the heart of the Monterey Peninsula, one of the country's most iconic and scenic golf destinations, Monterey Peninsula Country Club was founded in 1925 and encompasses more than 400 acres of the Del Monte Forest, coastal dunes and seaside landscape along 17 Mile Drive. Seth Raynor designed the Dunes Course, which opened for play in 1926, and was renovated by Rees Jones in 1998 and redesigned by Tom Fazio in 2016. The club’s second course, the Shore Course, was designed by Bob E. Baldock and Jack Neville in 1961 and reconstructed by Mike Strantz in 2004.

For more than 30 years, the club was in the rotation of courses for the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (formerly the Bing Crosby Pro-Am). A portion of the Pro-Am was played on the Dunes Course beginning in 1947, then moved to the Shore Course in 1965 and 1966 before switching to Spyglass Hill in 1967. In 2010, the Shore Course returned to the tournament's rotation, and remained part of the event through the 2023 tournament.

All four of the previous USGA championships at Monterey Peninsula Country Club were contested on the Dunes Course. The 1952 U.S. Girls’ Junior was won by future four-time U.S. Women’s Open champion and World Golf Hall of Famer Mickey Wright. It was followed by the 1958 U.S. Senior Amateur, won by Thomas Robbins. In the following 20 years, MPCC held two U.S. Senior Women’s Amateurs, in 1968 and 1976, won by Carolyn Cudone and Cecile Maclaurin, respectively. For Cudone, it was the first of five consecutive titles.

First played in 1987, the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur is open to female amateurs age 25 and older with a Handicap Index® not exceeding 9.4. The championship field features 132 players who compete in two rounds of stroke play, after which the field is cut to the low 64 scorers for match play. The U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur champion earns an exemption into the following year’s U.S. Women’s Open, which in 2026 will be held at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
