Meet the 10 women’s teams in field

Meet the 10 women’s teams in field

It’s back. And in its second year, its only going to be better.

The field for the 2024 Women’s National Golf Invitational is locked in. The postseason collegiate event entering its second season is scheduled May 9-12 at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club in Maricopa, Arizona.

Presented in partnership with Golfweek, the 2024 Women’s National Golf Invitational will feature 10 college teams competing in a 54-hole stroke-play tournament. There are two returning teams from the 2023 field, Mercer and Santa Clara, with eight newcomers hoping for a chance to claim a postseason title.

Think of the NGI as the NIT of collegiate golf.

In May 2022, the NCAA announced it would allow schools to play in one season-ending event. By July 2022, the inaugural National Golf Invitational was created in a partnership between Golfweek and Ak-Chin Southern Dunes, with Golfweek’s Lance Ringler serving as the Invitational’s tournament director.

The teams competing in the 2024 Men’s National Golf Invitational, scheduled for May 16-19, will be announced later.

Penn State captured the inaugural women’s title last spring.
