The Tarleton women's golf program will be hosting a fundraising tournament on Sunday, Aug. 26 at Sugar Tree Golf Club in Dennis.

"This is a great opportunity for people to help out our program," said head coach Jerry Doyle. "Last year, we won the West Region and finished fifth in the nation, and we couldn’t have done that without the support provided through this tournament."

The 6.777 yard, par 71 layout of Sugar Tree includes the banks of the Brazos River, 55 sand bunkers, water features, and challenging fairways lined by live oaks, pecans, hackberry trees, and others. Water is in play on 13 holes and you need to bend tee shots left and right. Voted by the Lone Star club pros, SugarTree Golf Club was selected No. 18 in the entire state of Texas. It has been named one of 10 hidden gems by GolfTexas.com, and it also holds Golf Digest's four star rating. SugarTree Golf Club has also hosted a U.S. Senior Men's Open qualifier.
