Sunriver Resort has been selected by the United States Golf Association as the site of the 2007 USGA Senior Women's Amateur. The dates of the championship are scheduled for September 1-6.
The Meadows Course at Sunriver Resort was opened in 1969 and was revised in 1999 by John Fought, an Oregonian who won the 1977 U.S. Amateur. Seven holes of the course border the Sun River. The design pays tribute to American courses of the 1920s and 30s with directional and fore bunkers in prominent use.
Sunriver's Meadow Course has previously served as the site of the 2002 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship, which was won by Annie Thurman-Young.
