New venue has Eagles excited for home tournament

EVANSVILLE, Ind.—A new venue has the University of Southern Indiana women's golf team excited to host the 2005 Ray Wright/Screaming Eagles Golf Classic. The 10th annual tournament is moving from its original home, the Helfrich Hills Golf Course, to the Cambridge Golf Course, just north of Evansville off of U.S. Highway 41.

The Cambridge Golf Course is a public golf facility that is an 18-hole, par 72 course. It features 10 acres of water in nine in-play lakes and over 250 pot and flat bottom bunkers. The site, in the Cambridge Village Community, is well suited to its Scottish-style links design.

Cambridge opened for play on July 15, 2000, and has received rave reviews and strong play ever since. The yardage for this year's tournament will be 5,862.

This year's tournament features 15 schools and 16 teams, including nine GLVC schools and a USI “Red” and “Blue” squad. Including USI, there also will be three teams from the tri-state area as both Brescia University and Kentucky Wesleyan College will make the trip across the Ohio River.

Last season, Northern Kentucky University was the team medalist after shooting a two-round tournament record 628. Rend Lake College's Surita Risseeuw was last season's individual medalist after shooting a two-round record 145.

USI was second in last year's tournament after setting a single-round record with its 307 on the first day. Senior Alisha Luigs (Mt. Vernon, Indiana) also set a single round tournament record, which was shared by Risseeuw and Brescia's Dana Langdon, last season by shooting a 71 on the opening day. Luigs was fourth overall with a five-over-par score of 151.

This season, Luigs leads the Eagles with a 75.8 strokes per round average, including a 74.5 spra in USI's last two tournaments. She has finished in the top 10 of all three of USI's tournaments this season, including a first-place finish at the GVSU Laker Fall Classic.

The Ray Wright/Screaming Eagles Golf Classic commences with practice rounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Tee times for Sunday's opening round begin at 9:30 a.m., with USI's players teeing off around 10 a.m. Monday's final round will be a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
