On February 11-13 the Mikuni Sushi Shootout Women’s Collegiate Golf Championship will take place at the Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln. Holy Names University from Oakland serves as host college, bringing this exciting NCAA Division II event to Placer Valley.
HNU coach Chris Oetinger said this is the inaugural year for the Shootout, and is hoping to make this an annual event that grows to encompass many colleges from the western states. Colleges from California and Hawaii will be represented.
“We have eight women’s collegiate golf teams coming and each team will bring five players,” Oetinger said. “The focus is on the team score, although we will award the top individual golfers as well.”
On Feb. 11 the teams will arrive and have prac- tice rounds. On Feb. 12 the golfers will begin the competition using a 36-hole format and finish on Feb. 13.
The tournament will start at 8 a.m. both days with players on the course until mid-afternoon. Catta Verdera Country Club is located at 1111 Catta Verdera in Lincoln.
Mark your calendars and come see some potential future LPGA players.
