Golfweek will again host the men’s and women’s Golfweek Conference Challenge in the fall of 2010.

The inaugural Conference Challenge was played this fall. Florida State won the men’s event and Pepperdine won the women’s tournament. Each program finished the fall ranked inside the top 15; the Seminoles were No. 5 and the Waves No. 13.

Next fall the women’s event will move from Primm, Nev., to Vail, Colo., and will be played Sept. 25-28 on the Fazio Course at Red Sky Golf Club.

The men’s event will remain in Iowa, but switch venues. Next year’s tournament will be played at Spirit Hollow Golf Club in Burlington, Iowa, and take place Sept. 18-21.

The University of Iowa will serve as the host school for the men’s event, and the University of Denver will be the host school for the women’s event.

The fields for each event will be finalized in early 2010.
