Updated: August 30, 2010

Washington State University and the Palouse Ridge Golf Club have been selected by the National Collegiate Athletic Association to host the 2013 Men’s Golf Regional Golf Championships.

WSU will serve as one of six regional site hosts. Other host institutions include LSU, Florida State, Ohio State, Arkansas and Arizona State.

“I am thrilled that Palouse Ridge is hosting a men’s regional,” said WSU Men’s Golf Head Coach Walt Williams. “It is a worthy venue, and a feather in the cap of Washington State, to be hosting such a prestigious event.”

Carved into a broad expanse of rolling hills on the Pullman campus, Palouse Ridge is one of America’s finest new public-access courses. Its majestic 7,308-yard layout is home to the Cougar men’s and women’s golf teams, and was specifically designed to test the best collegiate golfers in the country.

Palouse Ridge has been named one of the nation’s best new courses by Golfweek, Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine, among others.

Washington State is also slated to host the Pacific-10 Conference Women’s Golf Championships at Palouse Ridge in April 2012, and the Pac-10 Men’s Golf Championships in April 2015.
