Many of you have already heard the news — Oregon Women’s Golf is taking over Spain and France this coming September!!!!!
The NCAA allows a collegiate team to do a foreign trip every four years. We have decided to provide the team with a European experience! We will be landing in Barcelona, September 8th, going to Madrid on the 12th, and heading to Paris on the 17th to return to Oregon on the 19th. This is GREAT trip to start the season and a perfect opportunity for the Ducks to learn more about each other, and the world!
GOLF and FUN will be packed in our suitcases, but with room for shopping of course!
During the first stop in Barcelona, we are planning on taking an City Tour and a Gaudi Tour in addition to practicing our golf. We are very fortunate that Real Club de Golf El Prat is hosting us to practice and play during our stay in Barcelona. BLESSED! :)
Madrid also brings a lot of excitement for the DUCKS. Besides a City Tour, Tapas Tour and shopping we will be playing a three-round match play competition against the Spanish National Team in Madrid in El Centro Nacional de Golf! It is a rare opportunity for us, as we will have all nine of our players teeing it up against Spain’s best.
