Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., (Nov. 12, 2012) – Central Florida's Mission Inn Resort & Club will host the country's top collegiate golfers for the Division III Women's Championship in 2014 and 2015.
The resort was one of 73 sites selected by the NCAA to host championships across 18 different sports, and one of only three to earn the right to host an event for two years.
The NCAA is no stranger to Mission Inn Resort & Club's two courses, El Campeon and Las Colinas. The 36 championship holes have hosted multiple conference and divisional championships through the years.
El Campeon, the third oldest course in Florida, challenges golfers with tee to green elevation changes of 85 feet, which is very unusual for Florida, along with water on 13 of the 18 holes, two holes with peninsula greens and one with an island green.
The par-72 Las Colinas course has been recognized by Golf Women as a recipient of the publication's "Top Fairways" honors. The course differs from El Campeón in that it is longer, but has more open fairways and larger greens.
Located just 35 minutes northwest of Orlando in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, Mission Inn Resort & Club is a secluded 1,100-acre Spanish Colonial resort featuring exceptional accommodations, golf, tennis, marina, dining, trap and skeet, conference, wedding and spa facilities.
