Regional Shift

STANFORD, Calif. – The 2018 NCAA Division I women's golf San Francisco Regional will be hosted by Stanford University and played at TPC Harding Park, May 7-9, it was announced Wednesday.
The regional was originally scheduled to be played at Stanford Golf Course. However, the course is undergoing renovations and they will not be completed in time for the championship.
"We are obviously disappointed to not be able to host at Stanford Golf Course, but at the same time, we are excited to keep the regional in San Francisco and showcase one of the most historic golf courses in the Bay Area," said Anne Walker, the Margot and Mitch Milias Director of Women's Golf. "Harding Park has been terrific and we can't thank General Manager Tom Smith and the City of San Francisco enough for their help in accommodating this event."
Originally opened in 1925, TPC Harding Park has been the site of many prominent amateur and professional tournaments. It hosted the 1937 and 1956 U.S. Public Links Championship, and was a regular stop on the PGA Tour in the 1960s. Hall of Famers Ken Venturi and Johnny Miller honed their games on the course.
In 2005, the WGC-American Express Championship was held at TPC Harding Park, with former Stanford star Tiger Woods defeating John Daly in a playoff. The Presidents Cup was played there in 2009, followed by Charles Schwab Cup Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2013.
TPC Harding will host the 2020 PGA Championship and the 2025 Presidents Cup.
This marks the seventh time Stanford will host the NCAA women's golf regionals. The championship was previously contested at Stanford Golf Course in 2016, 2013, 2010, 2004, 2002 and 1998.
