For the first time since 2007, the LSU women’s golf team will host an NCAA postseason regional event to highlight the 2015-16 schedule.
LSU will have two new stops on its eight-tournament regular season schedule, which includes both fall (Sept.-Oct.) and spring (Feb.-April) swings before the postseason.
The University Club will host a women’s NCAA regional for the third time (2002, 2007, 2016). The regional event is scheduled for May 5-7, and 18 teams will take part in the 54-hole tournament with six advancing to the national championship. LSU also hosted one of two events that started regional qualifying in in 1993 at Santa Maria Golf Course.
The Lady Tigers will also try to defend their title in the LSU Tiger Golf Classic, March 20-22.
LSU will also defend championships at The Alamo Invitational in San Antonio in late October and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Classic at English Turn in New Orleans to open the spring schedule, Feb. 21-23.
LSU will also take part in two of the events it finished second in — the season-opening Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate in Franklin, Tennessee (Sept. 18-20) and the Darius Rucker event in Hilton Head, South Carolina in March.
There are two events LSU will participate in for the first time — the ANNIKA Intercollegiate in Orlando, Florida, Sept. 27-29 and the Silverado Showdown in Napa, California, April 3-5. The ANNIKA event features a limited invitational field of 12 of the country’s top squads, while the Silverado Showdown is a combined hosting effort of Oregon and Colorado.
