Providence, Rhode Island - Head women's golf coach Danielle Griffiths has announced Brown's Spring Schedule for 2009, opening the season in Wilmington, North Carolina at the Seahawk Classic on March 23rd and 24th, a 54-hole event with teams ranked between the top 40 and 80 in the country.
The Bears will host the Brown Intercollegiate at Thorny Lea Golf Club in Brockton, Mass. on April 4th and 5th, hosting an event for the first time. Joining the Bears in the event are Dartmouth, Harvard, Boston College, and Boston University.
On April 17th and 18th Brown travels to the Columbia Roar-ee Tournament at the Spook Rock Golf Course in Suffern, NY. The competition will be a preview of the Ivy League Championship, just one week later.
The Ivy League Championship will once again take place at the Atlantic City Country Club, one of the top facilities in the Northeast, on April 24th-26th. The 54-hole conference tournament will be a great test of golf. The Ivy League has three teams in the top 100 in the country and each year the playing field rises to a new level.
Griffiths also announced that sophomore Susan Restrepo has been named team captain for the 2009 season. "Susan is a very talented golfer with a work ethic that is persistent and determined, said Griffiths. "Her strong commitment to academics, golf, and her teammates is an example of her relentless pursuit for excellence. Susan is a born leader! Her passion for the game and sincere concern for others will allow her to shine as a motivator and voice of a young team in a new era."
