WELCOME TO THE CHAMPIONSHIPS: The fifth-ranked San José State women’s golf team is making its 22nd appearance at the NCAA Championships. The Tom Fazio-designed Raptor course unfolds over the gentle hills and across shaded natural arroyos found in this corner of the Sonoran Desert. The course is listed among the best public golf courses in Arizona by Golfweek and Golf Magazine. The course will play at par 72 and 6,399 yards.

CHAMPIONSHIP FORMAT: All 24 teams and 12 individuals will complete 54 holes of stroke play.  Following 54-holes of competition on Sunday, the top-15 teams along with the top nine individuals not on an advancing team will advance for one additional day of stroke play to determine the top eight teams for match play competition and the 72-hole stroke-play individual champion.

The top eight teams after 72 holes of stroke play will be placed into a bracket with the No. 1 seed playing the No. 8 seed, the No. 2 seed playing the No. 7 seed, the No. 3 seed playing the No. 6 seed and the No. 4 seed playing the No. 5 seed in match play.  Ties for the top 15 teams as well as the top 9 individuals, will be broken by use of a sudden-death playoff.  Otherwise, the use of the established non-sudden-death tie-breaking procedures will be used for determining advancement.

Additionally, ties for the top eight teams and NCAA individual champion will be broken by a sudden-death playoff or, if necessary, by the established non-sudden-death tie breaking procedures.
