Teeing off early Wednesday morning the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s golf team will attempt to medal for the fourth time in six years at the PING CCAA national championships which take place Oct 14-17 at the Club de Golf Lorette in Quebec, Qc. For the second straight year, the tournament will be hosted by Champlain College St. Lawrence.

The tournament will span three consecutive days and 54 holes to decide a champion.
