NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt Legends Club has been added as a host site for this season’s NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Regional Championships, as announced by the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Committee on Thursday.
“We are beyond thrilled to get to host one of the regionals and very grateful that the NCAA Women’s Golf Committee will give us the opportunity to show off the Vanderbilt Legends Club,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said. “I’m really excited for our team getting the opportunity to play at home in May.”
This marks the first time in program history the Dores have hosted NCAA Regionals. Vanderbilt previously hosted the 2012 NCAA Championships at the Vanderbilt Legends Club where the Dores finished 11th overall.
Already slated to host regional play May 9-11 in 2022 are The Championship Course at UNM (Albuquerque, New Mexico), University of Michigan Golf Course (Ann Arbor, Michigan), Karsten Creek Golf Club (Stillwater, Oklahoma) and Seminole Legacy Golf Club (Tallahassee, Florida).
In November, the NCAA had announced the move to a six-regional format effective with the spring championship. Each of the six regional sites will now feature 12 teams and six individuals with the top four teams and top two individuals (not on an advancing team) qualifying for the championships which will be held for the second straight year at Grayhawk Golf Club (Raptor Course) in Scottsdale, Arizona, from May 20-25.
With the move to six regional sites from the previous four-site format, 72 teams will still qualify for regional play with the number of individuals not on an advancing team increasing from 24 to 36.
