Greensboro College Women’s Golf Begins Second Season at Piedmont Invitational

The Greensboro College women’s golf team opened its second season of competition over the weekend at the Piedmont Invitational. The tournament marked the first in which The Pride fielded a full team.

Hitting the course for Greensboro were Tara Smith, Courtney Holt, Alexis Gregory and Taylor Watkins. Smith posted a team best 36-hole score of 199 (104-95) as each Pride golfer saw improvement from Sunday’s opening round to Monday’s finale.

“This was the girls’ first tournament playing from the longer college yardages and it was definitely a great learning experience,” said Pride assistant women’s golf coach Anne Wooton. “The girls had a lot of fun playing a beautiful golf course and, although it may not be evident from their scores, their games showed a lot of potential for growth and low scores. Tara Smith actually had her personal best round during our Sunday practice round with a string of pars and birdies to shoot 84.”

Greensboro will hit the course again on Saturday for the two-day Hollins Invitational.
