Top women's college players at Tumble Creek

May 9

Tumble CreekI'm a big fan of two things: playing courses after top players have been there and women's golf. With the NCAA Women's West Regional at Suncadia's Tumble Creek this weekend, I get both (and so can you).

The tournament, hosted by the University of Washington's golf team, started yesterday and runs through May 10th. There are 24 teams from across the country, including the seventh ranked University of Washington, competing for spots in the NCAA championship later this month.

Tough competition.

Located on a plateau above the Cle Elum River, the par-71 Tumble Creek Club is 7,070 yards from the back tees and features relatively small greens with significant movement, bent grass fairways that flow with the rolling mountain topography and 100 natural edge bunkers, all designed to blend seamlessly into the Northwest landscape.

In addition to this week's tournament, Tumble Creek has hosted Women's and Men's U.S. Open sectional qualifying and several other national tournaments. That makes it a place that's just waiting to be challenged by average golfers like you and me.

If you can't make it up to Suncadia (tickets are FREE), you can catch tournament highlights on the golf channel. After that's over, give NW Golf Adventures a call and let us book your vacation to Suncadia! You won't be able to play Tumble Creek – sadly, it's a private, members-only course – but the resort's Prospector and Rope Rider courses are incredible.

Golf Writer

In addition to owning Northwest Golf Adventures, I've been writing golf and travel articles since 2000. My main focus has always been golf in the Pacific Northwest, but I've had stories appear in association magazines across the country, several national publications and on radio and television. I'm always looking for great stories to write about!
