THE MATADOR INVITATIONAL

"This is the inaugural year or the Matador Invitational at Wood Ranch Golf Club," said CSUN head coach Gina Umeck. "CSUN women's golf aims to grow the event to include representation from all parts of the country. The Southern California location of Wood Ranch provides an excellent respite for the many teams who are stuck in cold climates in the winter months and the club has been a long time supporter of Cal State Northridge."
