Ann Arbor will play host to the 2021 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Women’s Golf National Championship at the Eagle Crest Golf Club. In a partnership between the Ann Arbor Sports Commission and Concordia (Mich.), the championship will be played at the home course of Eastern Michigan University.
“The Ann Arbor Sports Commission, along with Concordia University and Eagle Crest Golf Club, are proud to host the 2021 NAIA Women’s Golf National Championship,” said Mike Malach, Ann Arbor Sports Commission Executive Director. “This a wonderful and prestigeous event to be held in Washtenaw County. We expect the championship to be a memorable event not only for the area but all the student-athletes competing that week.”
In 2022, the championship will return to Oklahoma City and Lincoln Park Golf Course. This is the current home for the event, which will finish its second and final year under the current agreement in Oklahoma City until it moves back for a single year in 2022.
Beginning in 2023, the championship will move to the Quad Cities and will be played at TPC Deere Run. This will be the second golf championship for the course and Visit Quad Cities, which will play host for the men’s golf championship in spring of 2022.
“It is a huge benefit to secure multiple hosts that have experience running large-scale athletics events,” said NAIA President and CEO Jim Carr. “We’re pleased that the NAIA Women’s Golf Championship will be in good hands for the next five years.”
