Fabulous Las Vegas Sets the Stage for No.6 Bulldogs at The Show

Las Vegas, Nev.– The 6th-ranked Mississippi State women’s golf squad is set to return to the course for the second event of the Spring portion of its season on Monday where they will tee off at The Show. The two-day event will begin Monday, Feb. 20th, and run through Tuesday.

Spanish Trail Country Club will set the stage for the 54-hole stroke play event. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, Spanish Trail is a spectacular course that features strategically placed lakes, waterfalls and streams sprinkled throughout the all-grass course; these features, in addition to 120 bunkers, create a new challenge at every hole. Jones’ green complexes are a highlight to any round played on any of the nines. Collection points for shots missing the greens create challenging pitches and chips, in addition, deep bunkers provide further difficulty for wayward approaches.

The 2023 edition of The Show features a 15-team including 11 teams ranked currently in the GolfStat top 75. Sixth-ranked State is joined by No. 26 Kent State, No. 30 Pepperdine, No. 47 Purdue, No. 49 Denver, No. 52 Furman, No. 56 Nevada, No. 59 New Mexico, host No. 68 UNLV, No. 69 South Florida and No. 75 Old Dominion. Charlotte, North Florida, Texas State and Washington State round out the field.

The 15-team field will participate in a 54-hole collegiate tournament played at the par-72, 6,400-yard Spanish Trail Country Club in Las Vegas, NV. Participants will be playing 36 holes on the first day and 18 holes on the final day. Pairings for each day will be determined by team score. The low four individual scores will determine the team scores for each round.
