Stanford, Vanderbilt announced as additional regional sites for 2022 NCAA Div. I Women’s Golf Championship


On Thursday afternoon the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Committee announced Stanford Golf Course in Stanford, California, and Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee, as regional sites for the 2022 NCAA Div. I Women’s Golf Championship.

In November the NCAA Competition Oversight Committee approved a request to move to a six-regional format starting this spring before the 2022 championship, May 20-25 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Each regional site will now be comprised of 12 teams and six individuals. The top four teams and top two individuals (not on an advancing team) will qualify for the championship. According to a previous release from the NCAA, “72 teams will still qualify for regional play, with the number of individuals not on an advancing team increasing from 24 to 36.”

The other regional hosts are The Championship Course at UNM (Albuquerque, New Mexico), University of Michigan Golf Course (Ann Arbor, Michigan), Karsten Creek Golf Club (Stillwater, Oklahoma) and Seminole Legacy Golf Club (Tallahassee, Florida).

“The response from the NCAA membership and local organizing committees to host these additional regionals has been remarkable,” said Julie Manning, chair of the Division I Women’s Golf Committee and deputy athletics director and senior woman administrator at the University of Minnesota. “We are thrilled to add two outstanding venues and institutions as hosts for our 2022 regional championships and we look forward to awarding additional regional hosts for the 2023-26 championships in the very near future.”

Regional sites for 2023-26 are expected to be announced in March.
