PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The RU women's golf team will host the Rutgers Invitational this Monday and Tuesday, October 14-15, at the Rutgers University Golf Course. Twenty colleges are competing in the annual event.

The Rutgers University Golf Course was founded in 1961 with the construction of the present day 18-hole layout that was expertly designed by Hal Purdy, a noted golf architect. The course was officially opened May 29, 1963. Today, the par-72 course can be stretched to 6,337 yards and features a course rating of 70.5 and a slope of 130.
Over the past decade, the course has undergone extensive renovations and updates, which include a modern irrigation system, the addition of several bunkers and the planting of many trees, including a host of impressive evergreens. Once a rather wide-open tract, today's Rutgers Golf Course features a host of tree-lined holes, featuring undulating greens and water that comes into play on five holes.
Tee times on Monday and Tuesday are from 8-10:20 a.m. Results will be posted on the athletics web site at the conclusion of each day.
