“We are confident the rich tradition of hosting major college and LPGA events, and the enthusiasm of the Legends and Vanderbilt athletics staff members who will serve as the hosts, will make this an incredible championship experience for our student-athletes.”

This year’s NCAA Women’s Championship is scheduled for May 18-21 at the Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, N.C., and next year’s event will be played at the Traditions Golf Club in College Station, Texas.
