(AGENPARL) – MONROE (LOUISIANA), dom 18 ottobre 2020
MONROE, La. – For the first time in four weeks, the ULM women’s golf team is back on the course Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 19-20) at the UT Arlington Invitational at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington.
Arlington Golf and the Texas Rangers partnered to build the world’s only Major League Baseball-branded golf course, which opened in February 2019. The $24 million project included a complete renovation and updated routing of an existing golf course with improved turf grasses and new water features. It is a par-72 course covering 7,010 yards.
“We’re looking forward to the tournament, hosted by UT Arlington,” ULM assistant golf coach Lana Hodge said. “The girls have had a great few weeks of practice, and I think they are ready to get back into competition mode after a few weeks off. I think we have a great opportunity ahead of us to have a great finish to the fall season.”
