The Landfall Tradition is one of the most prestigious events in women’s college golf because of the Championship Dye Course at Landfall.  The course did experience extensive damage from hurricane Florence, but Greens Superintendent Jeff Mack says the course is ready for players.

UNCW Women’s Golf Head Coach Cindy Ho says UNCW is “proud to welcome players of this caliber to Wilmington.”  She adds that UNCW golfers are in a “unique and fortunate position to play against these teams and they will learn a lot.”

The public is invited to attend all other play for free.  The College/Am Tournament is Thursday at 12:30 p.m.; Rounds 1 and 2 are Friday and Saturday with tee times between 8:30 and 10:36 a.m.; and the Final Round is a Shotgun Start at 8:45 a.m. with the Awards Ceremony following at the end of play.

All rounds are played on the Landfall Dye Course.  To attend tell gate attendants you are there for the Landfall Tradition Tournament.
