The purse was increased by 80% over the previous year, to $36,000. The record field of 63 players required the championship's first 36-hole cut, which reduced the weekend field to 41 women.

The golf course was part of the Concord Resort Hotel, which closed in 1998. The course is now operated as "Monster Golf Club."
