INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The NCAA has selected more than 600 host sites for preliminary rounds and finals of predetermined championships in Divisions I, II and III to be held from 2017-18 through 2021-22.
The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, along with the Shenandoah Convention & Visitors Bureau and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, have been announced as hosts for the 2022 NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship. The competition will take place May 10-13, at the Woodlands Country Club.
“We want to thank everyone who submitted a bid for this cycle of championship site selections and for their continued commitment during the process,” said Joni Comstock, NCAA senior vice president of championships. “We look forward to working with our membership, the cities and local organizing committees who may host for the first time, as well as the groups who will repeat as host sites. I also want to acknowledge and thank the sports committees that reviewed these exceptional bids and made the selections based on providing the best possible experience for our student-athletes, coaches and spectators.”
This will mark the fifth national championship that the SCAC has hosted. The league previously hosted the 2007 Men's and Women's Soccer Championships at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla., as well as the 2013, 2015 and 2017 Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving Championships, also in conjunction with the City of Shenandoah.
Criteria for selecting the host sites included creating what will be an exceptional experience for the student-athletes, along with adherence to NCAA bid specifications. Specifications can include, but are not limited to, providing optimal facilities; ease of travel to the location and ample lodging; and adherence to NCAA principles, which include providing an atmosphere that is safe and respects the dignity of all attendees.
