NAIA Women's Golf Championship May 21-24
The 19th annual NAIA Women’s Golf National Championships teed off this morning, May 21. The 2013 and 2014 NAIA Women's Golf National Championships will be hosted by Doane College (Neb.) in partnership with the Lincoln (Neb.) Convention and Visitors Bureau. The four-day, 72-hole tournament will be played at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club in Lincoln, Neb., on May 21 - 24, 2013.
This marks the first time that the event will be held in Nebraska, and the eighth different state in its history. Prior to Lincoln, the national championships spent the last two years at the Link Hills Country Club in Greeneville, Tennessee.
This also marks the first time Doane has served as a host for a NAIA Championship event. The Tiger athletic program has played host to NAIA playoff games in football and volleyball but not an entire championship. The bid comes on the heels of one of the best athletic seasons in school history in which 10 of the 18 varsity sports finished in the Top Two of the GPAC with seven player-of-the-year honors received. The last time Doane had such a strong athletics season was in 1997-98, also the school year the women's golf team qualified for nationals.
For the first time ever, the Women's Golf National Championships in Lincoln, Neb., May 21 – 24 will be video-streamed. There will be two cameras covering action at the Wilderness Ridge Golf Club, positioned at holes No. 9 and 18. The broadcast is made possible by the Doane College Athletic Department and the Tiger Sports Network.
