Friday, July 16, 2021 - by Deborah Lambert

Lindsey Hollis is the 2021 Chattanooga Women’s Amateur Champion. After three days of competitive golf at Battlefield Golf Club, she won by two strokes.  She maintained the lead each day. 

Her three day total was 223 with Macall Miller, a rising senior at the University of Montevallo in Alabama, finishing in a close second at 225. 

Hollis is a rising junior at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC and is an accounting major.  She was nominated by her coach and awarded the WGCA All American Scholar award in both her freshman and sophomore years.  She credits her mom for her athletic ability.  She expressed great appreciation to her family as well as the staff and members of Signal Mountain Golf and Country Club and Lookout Mountain Golf Club for their support.  She also credits local head professional Bruce Etter for his coaching skills. 

She said, “I feel blessed to be able to attend Wofford and play for an experienced, knowledgeable, and kind coach (Angie Ridgeway) and be a part of an amazing golf team.

Her thoughts on the Chattanooga Women’s Amateur - “This is my fourth year to play in this Championship and it is one in which I look forward to playing each summer.”

She plans to return to defend her title in 2022.

Darlene Werhnyak is the 2021 Chattanooga Senior Women’s Champion.  After two days of play at Battlefield Golf Club, she won with an impressive total of 154.  This is her fifth win as the City’s Senior Champion. 

Currently, she is the Tennessee Super Senior State Champion as well. 

She is President of the Chattanooga Women’s Golf Association and works hard to promote women’s golf in the area.

Preslee Yoder finished third with a 246.
