2024 Gloria Minoprio Challenge

Gloria Menoprio was a boss. She played in the 1933 Ladies’ British Open Amateur Championship with just one club (a cleek) and was the first woman to wear trousers in competition. In her honor, Northwest Hickory Players presents the 2nd annual Gloria Minoprio Challenge. Players must wear trousers and use only one club. It has to be an original hickory-shafted iron (no replicas) with a loft of 25-degrees or less (aka a “cleek iron”). No woods permitted. No measuring devices of any kind allowed. The challenge will be over eighteen holes this year at Camas Prairie Golf Course in Port Townsend (formerly known as Port Townsend Golf Course) with favorable tees and we’ll all raise a glass to Gloria afterward.
