Last week, SaddleBrooke hosted the 16th annual MountainView Collegiate Women’s Golf International.

Golfers from 15 schools from across the country came to SaddleBrooke to play and, with the unique nature of the tournament, the players and their coaches stay with host families in the community.

Jo Helms, who is the tournament coordinator, said about 150 volunteers come together to help put the event on, while 75 families open their doors and let them stay in their homes making it a truly community event.

“This is a great, great honor to do this, because we host the kids and the coaches. They just love coming here,” Helms said. “They get a sense for what a community we have here. They love it. The girls are so appreciative and just delightful to be around.”

Numerous people from the community came out to support the girls, while passing by them, the players were often heard thanking them for coming out and supporting them and the tournament. 

The tournament began on March 28 at 8 a.m., with the girls playing 36 holes. Then, on the following day, they played 18 holes.

The teams that participated were: Arkansas State, BYU, Colorado State, Gonzaga, Kansas State, Kent State, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Northern Arizona, Portland State, Redlands CC, Tulsa, and Wyoming.
