Saints Women's Golf Program
St. Lawrence University's women's golf team has established itself as one of the top Division III programs in the Northeast in just ten years as a varsity program. The Saints made their third straight NCAA Division III tournament appearance in the spring of 2010 and were ranked as high as sixth in the GolfStat Rankings for women's collegiate golf during the 2009-10 season.
The Saints annually compete in top tournaments throughout the Northeast, playing against Division I, II and III competition. They start the year with the St. Lawrence Intercollegiate Invitational, an annual event which is one of the few nationally to include both men's and women's teams on the same course on the same day.
The program was introduced in the 1999-2000 season and made its first NCAA appearance in 2003. The Saints have also won a New York State Women's Collegiate Athletic Association championship and several in-season tournaments during their brief history as an intercollegiate team.
Coach Mary Lawrence, a former
LPGA touring professional, has quickly built the Saint men's and women's teams
into NCAA contenders and the Saints are one of the top small college teams in
New York State.
The Saint golfers benefit from an indoor golf training center which is one of the finest in the East. It includes a golf simulator, three computerized hitting areas, a putting green and a chipping area for winter practice and training. The Saints' outdoor home is the St. Lawrence University Golf Course, a 6700 yards championship-caliber course from the blue tees which is one of the best courses in Northern New York.
Both men's and women's teams play a fall and spring schedule with the spring season opening with a southern trip during semester break.
