Lynchburg's Own M.A.A.M
Our Mission Statement
Established in 2019, The Donna Andrews Invitational is dedicated to creating a premier tournament experience for amateur women golfers of all ages. We strive to bring an exceptional field of junior, collegiate, mid-am and senior players together on an iconic golf course in an atmosphere that creates lifelong relationships based on the best qualities of the game – sportsmanship and mentoring in the midst of elite competition!
Donna Andrews grew up in Lynchburg, VA honing her game at historic Boonsboro Country Club, and became a successful golfer at the junior, collegiate and professional levels. Donna played with a spring in her step and joy in her heart. She won seven Virginia State Amateur titles, including five straight VSGA Women’s Amateurs, before playing collegiate golf for Dot Gunnells at the University of North Carolina. She won the prestigious North and South Women’s Amateur in 1988, and worked with renowned teachers Davis Love, Jr. and Jack Lumpkin during a 15-year professional career that brought her six titles, including one major, the 1994 Nabisco Dinah Shore, birdieing the last hole to secure the win and rekindle the tradition of jumping into the pond fronting the 18th green. She was a member of two victorious Solheim Cup teams (1994 and 1998) and earned more than $3.6 million in her professional career. She was a member of the LPGA Executive Committee from 2001-2004, serving as President in 2003 and 2004. In 2007, Donna captained the Junior Solheim Cup Team. She is a member of the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, was the first female to be inducted into the VSGA Hall of Fame, and is the first LPGA Tour player to be inducted into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. Presently, she teaches private and group lessons as the lead instructor in the golf schools at Pine Needles Resort and Lodge in Southern Pines, NC.
Being kind of this major figure in women’s golf, to have her [Donna Andrews] come and support this event that has her name on it I think is going to make this first inaugural year kind of even more special. I think it will be a main draw for amateurs of all ages really to come here for Donna and hear her experiences and support the event. I think it’s huge!
Donna Andrews greets every single player and is watching the tournament and doing many activities with the players throughout the week. It is a privilege to be around such an outstanding former LPGA player.
The Donna Andrews Invitational was one of my favorite tournaments of the summer! The tournament offered a competitive field of junior, college, and mid-am golfers and Boonsboro CC was a fun and challenging track. The golf staff, committee members, and volunteers made the event run seamlessly and were so supportive of women’s golf and growing the game
It was a great week. The course is in excellent condition and it was just a great atmosphere out there. There were a ton of spectators, and Boonsboro Country Club really came out and supported the event, which is amazing for women’s golf. I think the tournament was just extremely well run, and I’m looking to coming back in the future.
I was fortunate to be given one of the first invitations to The Inaugural Donna Andrews Invitational 2019. It was a memorable tournament experience in which I made many lifelong friendships. There were a lot of great players and it was one of the most well organized and fun amateur tournaments I have ever competed in. I hope to return to Boonsboro CC and play in The Donna every year!
I have so many good things to say about The Donna Andrews Invitational. To start, when you arrive at the golf course you feel at home. The town has supported the tournament so much and has gathered so many volunteers who will do anything to make your time even better. The meals provided to the players and their family at no additional cost were fantastic and allowed everyone to come together and made opportunities to create lifetime friendships.
The tournament was run amazingly well... It was very professional, and definitely a first class event. Can't wait to come back!
