The Kitty Michael was launched in 1979 as a means of growing the women’s game, forging international friendships and competition and fostering goodwill. It was played in Longboat Key in 2010.
This is the first installment of the Kitty Michael since 2019; the event was canceled the past two years because of COVID-19.
