Far Hills, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - The United States Golf Association announced on Thursday that Waverley Country Club, in Portland, Ore., has been selected to host the 2017 U.S. Senior Women's Amateur Championship.

The tournament, which will be the seventh USGA championship held at Waverley, will be contested Sept. 9-14.

"The USGA is pleased to bring the U.S. Senior Women's Amateur Championship to Waverley Country Club for the first time," said Thomas J. O'Toole Jr., USGA vice president and championship committee chairman. "Waverley has hosted a USGA championship in every decade since the 1950s and has a storied history with great champions. The course is sure to provide an exciting and competitive test for stroke play and match play, and we expect to identify another fitting national champion."

Last year, Ellen Port, of St. Louis, won her second straight U.S. Senior Women's Amateur at CordeValle in San Martin, Calif. Port has captured six USGA women's championships, trailing only JoAnne Gunderson Carner, who won eight, and Anne Quast Sander and Carol Semple Thompson, who each have seven wins.
