2016 Women’s Collegiate Golf Tournament

Mary Baglien

The eighteenth annual MountainView Women’s Collegiate Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19. Kansas State and the University of Missouri will again host this year’s tournament.

This year’s 15-team field includes the following schools: Colorado State, Georgia, Iowa State, Kansas State, Kennesaw State, Middle Tennessee, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico State, Ohio State, Purdue, San Jose State, Texas State, University of Texas San Antonio and Wyoming. In addition, there will be a number of individual golfers.

Teams and their coaches will begin arriving on Wednesday, March 16 in preparation for their practice round at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 17. There will be 8:00 a.m. shotgun starts on both Friday and Saturday. They will play 36 holes on Friday and 18 holes on Saturday. The awards presentation will take place on the patio outside the Mesquite Grill immediately following completion of play on Saturday.

This is a fun tournament filled with very talented golfers. We encourage you to come out and watch some awesome golf and cheer for your favorite team!

Our volunteers make this tournament very unique. This is one of only two or three tournaments where the players and coaches are housed by residents. In addition, our resident volunteers transport players to their starting holes in the morning, shuttle players between holes, spot tee shots on certain holes, donate water or money for water and snacks for the players and most of all, come out to support them during play.

Jo Helms has designed a website for volunteer’s use. This website, http://mvcollegiatewordpress, describes the various volunteer opportunities and allows you to sign up online.
