IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head women’s golf coach Megan Menzel announced the team’s 2015-16 schedule Thursday. The slate features the Diane Thomason Invitational in Iowa City at Finkbine Golf Course, Sep. 12-13.
“We have a great opportunity right away by playing at home for our first event this year,” said Menzel. “Finkbine will be in great shape and September is such a great time to play tournament golf in Iowa.”
The Hawkeyes kick off their season hosting the Diane Thomason Invitational at Finkbine Golf Course on Sept. 12-13. Last year, Iowa finished second in the 13-team field.
Iowa will travel to the eighth Annual Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Missouri (Sept. 28-29), NMS Aggie Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M. (Oct. 5-7), before rounding out the fall schedule at the Pinehurst Challenge in Pinehurst, N.C. (Oct. 12-13).
The Hawkeyes kick off their spring slate with the Westbrook Spring Invitational on Feb. 21-22 in Peoria, Arizona. Last year, Iowa finished ninth in the tournament’s 15-team field.
The following week Iowa will travel to Kiawah Island, S.C., to compete in the Edwin Watts Kiawah Island Classic (Feb. 28- March 1) hosted by the College of Charleston.
On March 12, the Hawkeyes take a break from tournament play for a Showdown at Summerlin match against Texas State at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.
The Hawkeyes continue action at the BYU Entrada Classic (March 14-15) in St. George, Utah, before traveling to the Texas Tech Red Raider Invitational in Lubbock, Texas (March 8-9).
“We have some great venues on our schedule this year and we are looking forward to playing at Pinehurst in October and Kiawah Island in March,” said Menzel. “We recently added the Tech tournament in April that has an outstanding field of teams and is a regional host site for the 16-17 season.”
Iowa will conclude the regular season in Columbus, Ohio, at the Lady Buckeye Invitational (April 16-17); a two-day event hosted by Big Ten foe Ohio State.
The Big Ten Championships are set for April 22-24, at the Fort in Indianapolis, Ind.
“The team is committed to making an impact on each and every event that we play,” said Menzel. “Ultimately our goal going into each week is to win.”
