The USGA has released the list of qualifying sites and dates for the 2020 US Women's Open, as well announced the number of spots in the US Women's Open field available at each site.
Unlike with the US Open, there aren't multiple qualifying stages. There's one stage of qualifying, but there are more qualifying sites, with events conducted over a longer span of time.
A total of 25 qualifiers will be conducted, with four international qualifiers in England, Japan, China and South Korea. These are 36-hole events, with the top finishers moving on to the 2020 US Women's Open. The 2020 US Women's Open dates are June 4-7, 2020 at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas.
The USGA accepted 1,552 entries for the 2019 US Women’s Open at the Country Club of Charleston. The record of 1,873 entries was set for the 2015 US Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania.
US Women's Open qualifying requirements
