ANOTHER STRONG FIELD IS SET FOR THE TOURNAMENT
UNCW women’s golf coach Cindy Ho has announced another very strong field for the 14th annual Landfall Tradition. This year’s 18-team field comes from 11 states, represents 9 conferences, and boasts five of the top twenty ranked teams including the #4 ranked Duke Blue Devils. In addition to our own UNCW Seahawks, local favorites coming include North Carolina, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, South Carolina, and Virginia. The Big Ten Conference has four representatives in Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, and Purdue. Rounding out the field are Notre Dame, Central Florida, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Clemson, and first timers Elon and Kentucky .
The 2015 Landfall Tradition three-day tournament will be held on the Country Club of Landfall Dye Course October 23rd through the 25th. The annual College/Am tournament to raise monies for the UNCW golf scholarship fund will be held in the afternoon on Thursday, October 22nd.
Since its inception in 2002, the Landfall Tradition has hosted teams from 64 universities, over 1300 players from 32 states, and has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for the UNCW golf program. In addition, each year the Tradition generates a positive economic impact to the Wilmington area of approximately $250,000.
The Tradition has earned an outstanding national reputation as one of the year's finest women’s college golf tournaments with many teams returning year after year and others hoping for an invitation. Southern hospitality abounds, and the Landfall community embraces the annual event, made possible with the help of over 300 volunteers from the Wilmington area. Please consider being a much needed and much appreciated volunteer and also playing in the College/Am.
Tournament play starts at 8:00 AM, Friday morning. Admission and parking are free. This event is open to the public. Please come and see some great college golf and root for your favorite university.

No tournament of this size and quality can be successful without a strong volunteer base. This has been a key factor in the tournament’s success in the past.
Once again, we are looking for volunteers for the Fall tournament. We hope to welcome back volunteers from previous years but would like to extend the opportunity to anyone who may have an interest. Areas of need are diverse and schedules are flexible.
This is a fun yet important way to be a part of the tournament.
