Women's Golf Unveils 2014-15 Schedule|
Aug. 18, 2014
CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati women’s golf team and head coach Janet Carl have announced the schedule for the upcoming 2014-15 season. The Bearcats will play six tournaments in the fall and five during the spring.
The year will start with the one-day Cardinal Kickoff, hosted by the University of Louisville on Sept. 7.
“We are really ramping up our schedule this season, opening with a one-day event where we will see Georgia, Tennessee, Louisville and Auburn, all teams that participated in the NCAA Tournament last season,” stated Carl.
The fall season is highlighted by a new home tournament, the Bearcat Classic. The event will take place Oct. 6-7 at TPC River’s Bend in Maineville, Ohio. The Arnold Palmer-designed golf course was named by Golf Digest among the “Top 10 Best New Private Clubs in the U.S” when it debuted in 2002 and has also been recognized as one of Ohio’s “Best Courses in State” seven times.
“The Bearcat Classic will take place at a great venue and will showcase the Cincinnati and Xavier women’s golf teams through a community service event held prior to the tournament,” continued Carl.
Three familiar events are also included in the fall as the Bearcats will again compete at the Cardinal Cup (Sept. 15-16), the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational (Oct. 20-22) and the Florida International Pat Bradley Invitational (Nov. 2-4). One new event completes the fall schedule as the Bearcats will travel to the Forest Oak Fall Classic in Greensboro, N.C. on Sept. 29-30.
The spring schedule will send the Bearcats to Florida four times and Arizona once, competing in five tournaments that appeared on last year’s schedule. UC will start the spring at the Amelia Island Collegiate on Feb. 23-24 before traveling to Mesa, Arizona for the three-day Clover Cup (Mar. 13-15)
The Bearcats will then head to their spring tournament which will take place at the Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla March 20-22. A change in location from last year, Shingle Creek is known for its large greens, plush fairways and an abundance of water hazards.
“I’m excited about the changes for our spring tournament this season and believe that the 2015 Shootout at Shingle Creek will be great preparation for our conference tournament,” noted Carl.
Following the home tournament the Bearcats will participate in the final regular-season event in Ponte Vedra, Florida at the Web.com Intercollegiate (March 30-31). UC will then wrap up the season at the American Athletic Conference Championship which is again hosted at Hammock Dunes in Palm Coast, Florida April 19-21.
The Bearcats finished last season with 304.8 team scoring average, the lowest in school history. Cincinnati also turned in a pair of school records at the Price’s Give ‘Em Five Intercollegiate. The second-round score of 294 and three-day total of 894 were both school-best marks.
The Bearcats return nine of 11 student-athletes from last season, including five with experience as members of UC’s scoring team.
