The DePauw University Womens Golf team played in the 2023 Yale Invitational on October 1st. The match was to be a two-day event but the first day of 36 holes was cancelled due to excessively wet conditions on the course. The weather for the second day was just about perfect, though. The Yale University Golf Course is considered among the best courses in the country and is slated to undergo a two-year renovation immediately following the Yale Invitational.
DePauw played against 10 other Division 1 womens golf teams (Yale University, Dartmouth College, Boston University, University of Pennsylvania, Harvard University, Quinnipiac University, Columbia University, University of Arkansas Little Rock, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Fairfield University) and one other Division 3 golf team (Williams College, one of the top D3 womens golf teams in the country).
Against very stiff competition, DePauw made a good showing with sophomore Becky Williams putting a solid round of even par putting her in 5th place out of 72 individual players. As a team, DePauw finished 13 strokes behind Williams College in 12th place.
