WINTER PARK, Fla. (August 6, 2018) – After a 16th appearance in the NCAA Division II National Championship last season, Rollins women's golf has flipped the calendar and announced its 2018 fall schedule.
The Tars will face top competition from the Big Ten, Ivy League, and ACC to start the year, before closing the fall hosting NCAA Division II teams at the new Rollins Legends Classic.
"This is possibly the most challenging schedule to start a season we've ever put together," said Rollins Director of Golf and Head Coach Julie Garner. "Our players are very excited to visit these amazing courses and face the best players in the country."
The season starts September 22-23 at the Nittany Lion Invitational, hosted at the Penn State Blue Course in University Park, Pa. The Tars last played in the event in 2010, finishing third of 17 schools in the event. Fabia Rothenfluh took medalist honors with a two-over score of 218.
Rollins heads back north the following week for its annual clash with the Ivy League at the Princeton Invitational September 29-30. Seher Atwal was third at the event a year ago, leading the team to a third-place finish.
The 2018 Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational is slated for October 12-14 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Historically the toughest field on the Tars schedule, Rollins was 16th at the event last season. That same weekend, Rollins will send its individuals to the Saint Leo Invitational at Lake Jovita Country Club in Dade City, Florida.
The fall season concludes with the inaugural Rollins Legends Classic, hosted by the Tars at the Country Club of Orlando on November 5-6.
"We are so fortunate and excited to host our fall event at the Donald Ross designed Country Club of Orlando," added Garner. "This historic course will be a treat for all competitors and provides a great cap to the fall season."
