The nation’s top women amateur golfers will gather in summer 2013 at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club for the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship.
OU will be the first collegiate golf course ever to host both the U.S. Men’s, in 2009, and Women’s Public Links Championships.
"It is a tribute to the beauty and the challenges of the golf course and to the donors of the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club who have supported the course with their generous gifts," said OU President David Boren. "Our entire OU family looks forward to the opportunity to host the nation's top amateur golfers and those who will attend this national championship."
The Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club recently kicked off a fundraising campaign. Private support will help to ensure a course of unequaled beauty and quality for the 2013 Championship and for future OU golf competitions.
