Back in October of last year, the North Coast Athletic Conference held its annual Fall Preview for the Conference’s Mens and Womens 2017-2018 Golf season here in Mansfield.
Fast forward to the end of the season, and the 2018 NCAC Mens and Womens Golf Championships will be held at the same venue from Friday through Sunday.
Westbrook County Club will be welcoming teams from Allegheny, Denison, DePauw, Hiram, Kenyon, Ohio Wesleyan, Wittenberg, and Wooster.
Founded in 1983, the North Coast Athletic Conference is dedicated to fostering a complementary relationship between intercollegiate athletics and the pursuit of academic excellence. It consists of 10 academically selective colleges and universities in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.
A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division III, the NCAC features championship competition in 23 sports — 11 for men and 12 for women. The 12 women’s sports are among the most offered by any Division III conference, and the equality in number and emphasis between men’s and women’s athletics is just one of the elements that sets the North Coast apart.
Westbrook Country Club features a golf course opened on the fourth of July, 1922 by noted architect Donald Ross. Ross completed some 385 course designs in his lifetime, and was the first President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.
