2020 Invitational rescheduled

The 2020 Rancho Bernardo Inn Women’s Golf Club Invitational has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

The tournament, originally scheduled for May 12, was postponed because the Covid-19 pandemic forced closure of the RBI golf course until at least mid-May.

Entries from players whose participant status was confirmed for the original May 12 date will be honored for the new date. Registration Chair Joyce Dubuque may be contacted at joyce.dubuque@san.rr.com to answer any questions.

“Everyone is disappointed when a highly anticipated event is postponed,” said RBIWGC President Romona Smith. “But it is critical to take the long view and to safeguard the health of all participants.”

“We value the high degree of interest in our annual tournament,” she added, “and we look forward to seeing a full field of players in September, when we all will enjoy the spirit of this year’s Invitational, ‘The Fabulous ‘50s.’”

Invitational registers full field

The Rancho Bernardo Inn Women’s Golf Club Invitational, scheduled for Tuesday, May 12, 2020, has registered a full field of 144 amateur women golfers from across Southern California.

Entries opened on March 12 and closed early because the maximum number of players was reached within a few days. The entry fee is $105 per player, which includes greens fees, golf cart, range balls, continental breakfast, magic putt, lunch and prizes. The tournament theme is, “The Fabulous ‘50s.”

Check-in for the event will begin at 6:30 a.m. for an 8 a.m. shotgun start. The format will be four-person team modified waltz.

The Rancho Bernardo Inn Women’s Golf Club was founded in 1963. The first Invitational was a three-day event in spring 1964 and has since grown into one of the premier women’s golfing events in the county.
