2013 NCAAs heading to Capital City Club
Wednesday, September 1, 2010
The 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Championship has found a new home.
A week after Golfweek learned that the ’13 national championship would not be held at Atlanta Athletic Club, as was originally planned, the NCAA announced Wednesday that the event will be held on the Crabapple Couse at the Capital City Club in Atlanta.
Georgia Tech will remain the host and the event will take place May 28-June 2.
The tournament was moved away from AAC because of concerns about the club hosting two major amateur events in consecutive years. The Atlanta Athletic Club is scheduled to host the 2014 U.S. Amateur.
“We were honored to be selected originally as the hosts, and grateful to the NCAA Men’s Golf Committee for their decision to keep the 2013 championship in Atlanta,” said Bruce Heppler, head golf coach at Georgia Tech.
Prior to the 2010 NCAA regional, the Capital City Club/Crabapple has been the venue for the 2005 AJGA Canon Cup and the 2003 WGC-American Express Championship.
The 2011 NCAA Championship is scheduled for May 31-June 5 at the Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.
