Colorado Heads To Pair Of Tournaments
BOULDER —The Colorado women's golf team is getting ready for one of their busiest stretches this season with two tournaments in seven days.
The Buffs start with the Illinois Women's Invitational, October 11-12, in Medinah, Ill. The tournament will be played at the 6,159-yard, par 72, Medinah Country Club Course #2. Teams will play 36 holes on Monday, October 11 and the remaining 18 holes on Tuesday.
It is a 15-team field. Besides the host, Illinois, Colorado will face Georgia, Indiana, Kent State, LSU, Louisville, Maryland, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Purdue, San Diego State, San Jose State, Wisconsin and Texas Tech. The Buffaloes have been paired with Maryland for the first round and will tee off at 8:30 a.m. CT/7:30 a.m. MT. Live stats are available here.
After the Illinois Invitational finishes, the Buffs will catch a flight from the Midwest and will head straight to Northern California for the Stanford Intercollegiate, October 15-17. Stanford will host the event at its own 6,727-yard, par 70 course, which hosted the 2021 Pac-12 Championship last spring.
Although it will be a busy week for Colorado, head coach Anne Kelly is excited about the level of competition these tournaments will bring for her team.
"The tournament hosted by Illinois is at Medinah, which is a very famous course," Kelly said. "They hosted a Ryder Cup several years ago. The chance to play such an historic course is a great opportunity. It's a great field."
"And then we go right over to California to Stanford to play Stanford's event which is another great field on a great course. It's hard to play back-to-back tournaments but it was two tournaments we just could not pass up."
