Eugene CC lands 2016 NCAAs

Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore., has been selected as the site for the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships, with the University of Oregon as the host school.

At the same time, the NCAA announced in Indianapolis that the 2017 NCAA Championships will be played at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., with Northern Illinois University hosting.

This year, the championships will be held at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla., with the women playing on May 22-27, and the men on May 29-June 3. Both will be televised live by the Golf Channel.

“With this year’s championship being held in Bradenton, Fla., and with the selection of Eugene Country Club and Rich Harvest Farms, we are going to play in a variety of geographical locations over the next three years on nationally recognized courses, which is great for the growth of the championships,” said Mike Carter, chairman of the Division I Men’s Golf Committee and director of athletics at Oral Roberts University.

“It was difficult choosing sites and the committee appreciated the amount of hosting interest across the country for the national championships and regionals.”

Eugene Country Club, its course redesigned by Robert Trent Jones, hosted the men’s NCAA Championships in 1959 and 1978, and the USGA U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship in 2008. It hosted the Pacific Ladies Classic on the LPGA Tour from 1962-68.

Consistently listed in Golf Digest’s “Top 100 courses in the United States,” Eugene Country Club has hosted the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship seven times since 1974, the last in 2010.

The Stanford Golf Course will host a women’s regional tournament in 2016 and 2018, and the men in 2017.

The Reserve at Spanos Bay in Stockton will be the site of a men’s regional in 2018, with the University of the Pacific hosting.
