The U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship began in 1987 and became the 13th national golf championship conducted by the United States Golf Association. It was created to provide a national competitive arena for women amateur golfers age 25 and older.

The U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur is open to female amateur golfers who will have reached their 25th birthday on or before October 6, 2012 and who have a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 9.4. The women will compete for the Mildred Prunaret Trophy. A sterling Revere bowl, it was presented in 1987 by Mrs. Henri Prunaret, chairman of the USGA Women's Committee from 1959 through 1963. The champion retains custody of the trophy for the ensuing year.

The USGA accepted 405 entries for this year's championship. The largest number of entries received was 533 in 2000.

The 2012 championship will be the 28th USGA championship conducted in Texas. The last one held in the state was the 2011 U.S. Mid-Amateur at Shadow Hawk Golf Club in Richmond. This will be the fourth U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur conducted in the state. The last time was in 2005 at Shadow Hawk Golf Club, where Mary Ann Lapointe claimed the title.

This will be the first national championship conducted at Briggs Ranch Golf Club. Briggs Ranch has hosted sectional qualifying for the USGA Senior Amateur and U.S. Junior Amateur and local qualifying for the U.S. Open.

Last year, Ellen Port made history by defeating Martha Leach to win her record fourth U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship. Port defeated Leach, 2 & 1, at Bayville Golf Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia to win the title for the first time since 2000. With victories in 1995 and 1996 as well, she surpassed Meghan Bolger Stasi's and Sarah LeBrun Ingram's three titles to set a new mark. Port has also won the stroke-play portion of the event a record four times. She is tied with Carol Semple Thompson for most match-play victories with 56.

Leach defeated Laura Coble, 3 & 2, in 2009 to capture the title. The sister of six-time USGA champion Hollis Stacy, Leach captured the title in her 22nd appearance.

In 2008, Joan Higgins edged Lynn Simmons, 1-up, to capture the title in Ann Arbor, Michigan. With the win, Higgins became the oldest winner of this championship at age 52.

Back in 2007, Meghan Bolger became the first player in 11 years to win back-to-back championships when she beat Kerry Postillion in the 18-hole match play final.

In 2006, Bolger, playing in her home state, defeated Thuhashini Selvaratnam, 5 & 4 to capture the title at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi. Bolger, the former coach of the Ole Miss women's golf team, played the 14 holes in even par while Selvaratnam was 7-over. In six matches, Bolger never played the 17th and 18th holes.

In 2005, Mary Ann Lapointe edged medalist Kerry Postillion, 1-up, at Shadow Hawk Golf Club in Texas. In doing so, Lapointe, the 1986 reinstated amateur, became the first foreign-born champion of this event and the sixth Canadian to win a USGA championship.

The 2013 championship is set for Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, North Carolina from October 5-10.
