Palm Beach County to Host Conference USA Women’s Golf Championship

The Palm Beach County Sports Commission, in partnership with Florida Atlantic University, will host the Conference USA Women’s Golf Championship at PGA National Resort & Spa’s Champion Course. The three-day, 54-hole event will begin on April 18 and will culminate with the championship round to be played on April 20.

The field will be comprised of golfers from each of C-USA’s 12 women’s golf programs. Three teams currently rank in Golfstat’s top 100, including No. 46 North Texas, No. 51 UTSA, and No. 76 Charlotte. The North Texas Mean Green will look to defend their title after winning the conference championship by 12 strokes last season.

The C-USA Women’s Golf Championship is the latest event to join Palm Beach County’s impressive golf event resume. The Palm Beach County Sports Commission has previously hosted NCAA golf events including the 2019 Division II Women’s Golf Championship and the 2021 Division II Men’s Golf Championship. The Palm Beaches will also be home to the 2022 Division I Men’s Golf Regional, the NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championships in 2025, and the NCAA Division II Women’s Golf Championships in 2026.

“The Palm Beach County Sports Commission is thrilled to partner with Florida Atlantic University in hosting this Conference USA championship as it showcases Palm Beach County as an elite golf destination,” said George Linley, executive director of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. “Few communities have the privilege of hosting collegiate events of this caliber, and we could not be more excited to bring these talented players and coaches to The Palm Beaches for what will be a tremendous display of golf.”

The site for the championship, the Champion Course at PGA National Resort & Spa, is one of the most celebrated golf venues in Florida. The course, featuring a famed stretch of finishing holes called the “Bear Trap,” is home to championship events at all levels of the sport including the PGA Tour’s The Honda Classic. The world-renowned course, redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 2014, features five sets of tees, ensuring its playability to golfers of all levels.
