Springing Into Action
STANFORD, Calif. – The Stanford women's golf program announced its 2021 spring schedule on Thursday.
The Cardinal will host California and San Jose State on Thursday, Feb. 25 for a 36-hole, stroke-play event at Stanford Golf Course.
Stanford is also set to host two postseason events at Stanford Golf Course this spring – the Pac-12 Championships (Apr. 23-25) and the NCAA Regionals (May 10-12).
Stanford is also set to compete in several other events, mostly around the state of California. Following the three-team event on February 25, Stanford is set to travel to Sacramento for the Gunrock Invitational, March 1-2. The program will also compete in the Juli Inkster Invitational (March 8-9, Fairfax, Calif.), Ping/ASU Invitational (March 26-28, Phoenix, Ariz.) and the Fresno State Classic (Apr. 12-13, Fresno, Calif.) prior to the Pac-12 Championships.
Stanford will also have a unique opportunity sandwiched in between Pac-12s and NCAA Regionals, with the Olympic Club (San Francisco) hosting a U.S. Women's Open College Play Day on May 5. The course, set to host the U.S. Women's Open June 3-6, will be set up with the same hole locations as Saturday's round when it last hosted the event in 2012.
The women's golf program returned to campus last week to begin its mandatory 10-day travel quarantine and medical onboarding process in preparation for the 2021 season.
While Stanford Athletics will continue striving to create an opportunity for student-athletes to compete in their upcoming season, all decisions regarding training and competition will be based on the conditions and the guidance provided to us by public health officials and our university administration. Accordingly, the schedule is subject to change and additional events may still be added.
The Pac-12 Conference recently determined it would continue its prohibition on fan attendance at Pac-12 sport competitions taking place on Pac-12 campuses until further notice. Additionally, Santa Clara County's latest directive does not allow spectators to attend any practice, competition or other athletics event.
