USGA: Move the US Women's Open from a Trump-Owned Facility.

This petition had 848 supporters


Dear USGA,

We urge you to move the 2017 US Women's Golf Open Championship to another facility. You are scheduled to stage this event July 10-16, 2017 at the Trump National Bedminster Course in Bedminster, NJ.

Given Mr. Trump's publicly stated disrespect for women, it is inconceivable that the USGA (and LPGA) would allow this event to go forward. This is one of your two most prestigious events, but this venue is an insult to the women players, the Championship, and the USGA itself.

There are literally dozens of championship-level courses available to host this year, with the amenities, tents, and grandstands all set up. The NBA moved its All-star game over a principle. Surely the august USGA can do the same.

If you care about women, and you care about your image, go back and read your organizational principles.

Not everyone who signs this is/has been/will be a USGA member, but I am suspending my decades-long membership this year unless a change is made.

Thank you.
