"Adding the Sun Belt women's golf championships will make for two great weeks of collegiate competition at Sandestin," said Rick Hileman, director of golf at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. "After last year, we knew the men's teams and the Sun Belt were absolutely thrilled with the course conditions and play on the Raven (course).This simply adds to our history of producing quality and competitive golf events at Sandestin. We appreciate the commitment of the Sun Belt to bring both golf championships to our facility."
