18th Annual Golf Classic: April 27 - 29, 2012
Posted By: S Proctor on April 16, 2012

CELEBRATING AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN IN GOLF
The 18th Annual Women’s Collegiate Golf Classic/Championship
APRIL 27-29, 2012

The 18h Annual Women’s Collegiate Golf Classic/Championship (WCGC) will tee off on April 27, 2012 at Stone Mountain Golf Course in Stone Mountain , Georgia . The Women in Golf Foundation, Inc. (WIGF) is extremely pleased to host this exciting competition once again! This year we will feature awesome talent from some of America ’s top HBCU women’s golf programs as they compete for the “Renee Powell Cup”.
“The WCGC is honored to continue its celebration of African American women golfers”” stated LaJean Gould, founder and president of the foundation. Created in 1994, this event continues its mission of providing HBCU’s a season-ending competitive opportunity at a top-rated golf facility for its womens’ golf teams. The exposure to experts in the field, numerous networking opportunities, personal development, and life-skills enhancement is unmatched---there is no other program of this magnitude for young women of color.
Accepting this year’s invitation to compete are: Alabama State University – “2011 Women’s Collegiate Champions”, Bethune Cookman University, Benedict College, Hampton University, Prairie View A&M University, Savannah State University, South Carolina State University, Texas Southern.

Proceeds from the event will support both HBCU’s women’s golf and girls’ golf programs. This work is critical to the survival of golf programs for women in our HBCU institutions.

“It is the responsibility of our community to continue as well as enhance all sports programs for our young women; these are viable and healthy sports programs that benefit the whole person---we must do our part to see that they continue.”
REGISRATION IS STILL OPEN!!
