ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 6, 2012) – Golfweek, the most authentic, authoritative and independent voice in golf, marks the beginning of the highly anticipated 2012-2013 college golf season with tomorrow’s release of its annual College Preview Issue. From preseason rankings to feature stories to profiles of top players, Golfweek’s College Preview delivers more than 17 pages of dedicated coverage designed to give readers a comprehensive picture of the collegiate game.
“We had an incredibly exciting finish to the last college season, and we’ll pick up where we left off with an equal level of enthusiasm for what’s ahead,” said Golfweek Editor Jeff Babineau. “Many of today’s college standouts will be the pro stars of tomorrow, and we enjoy the mission of being first in letting our readers know their stories. Rest assured, no publication in golf rivals Golfweek when it comes to covering the college game with great depth and passion.”
Highlights of Golfweek’s 2012 College Preview include:
• An in-depth look at what makes the best college tournaments stand out among crowded fall and spring schedules
• An engaging profile of Alabama’s Stephanie Meadow, another top talent from Northern Ireland who has made a name for herself on both the college and amateur circuits
• An informative column from Beth Ann Baldry outlining how the increasingly high stakes of college golf are putting coaches in the cross hairs
• Preseason rankings for the NCAA’s best teams, individuals and top freshmen
In addition to preseason rankings, the College Preview also features the 2012 Golfweek’s Best Campus Courses list, which ranks the top 30 collegiate courses across the country. The Course at Yale (New Haven, Conn.) and Taconic Golf Club at Williams College (Williamstown, Mass.) are the best in class once again, illustrating the staying power of these old-school gems. Meanwhile, Palouse Ridge Golf Club at Washington State (Pullman, Wash.) trades spots with Rawls Course at Texas Tech University (Lubbock, Texas) to earn the No. 3 position.
Complementing its in-book offerings, Golfweek also provides fans with additional college golf coverage on Golfweek.com, including a full breakdown of Golfweek’s preseason top 30 men’s and women’s teams.
