Nov. 1, 2011
HONOLULU, Hawai'i -- After taking on challenging competition in Knoxville, Tenn. at the Pac-12/SEC Championship, the Huskies travel to Honolulu, Hawaii for the inaugural Rainbow Wahine Invitational hosted by the University of Hawaii.
This week's event is the final test for the Huskies of the fall.
The ninth-ranked Huskies finished 10th in the Pac-12/SEC Challenge, with the help of a stellar third round score of 68 from freshman Soo Bin Kim. Kim's round helped her reach 28th in the individual Golfstat.com rankings.
The 54-hole, two day invitational held by the University of Hawai'i will be played on the par-72 Kapolei Golf Course in Kapolei, Oahu, Tuesday Nov. 1 and Wednesday Nov. 2. Golfers will play 36 holes on Tuesday and 18 on Wednesday.
Opening in 1995, the 6,140-yard Kapolei Golf Course hosted events such as the LPGA Hawaiian Ladies Open until 2001 and the annual NCAA Kent Youel Invitational. The golf course is rated one of the best courses on Oahu by Golf Digest.
Twelve teams are participating in the invitational besides Washington, including Brigham Young, Cal State Fullerton, Florida International, Hawai'i, Mercer, Rutgers, Sacramento State, San Jose State, Stanford, UCLA, and Utah Valley. Along with the ninth-ranked Huskies, three other teams in the field are currently ranked: SJSU (36), Stanford (41), and UCLA (1).
The invitational will be a shotgun start both Nov. 1 and 2 at 8:00 am.
