AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn University will host three NCAA championship events within the 2018-2022 championship bid cycle in the sports of women’s golf, men’s golf and gymnastics, the NCAA announced Tuesday.
The Auburn University Club will host a pair of NCAA regionals with the first coming in 2019. The women’s golf program will be one of three hosts for the NCAA Women’s Golf Regional Championships, May 6-8. It will be the second time the program has held the regional event at the AU Club with the last coming in 2013. The Tigers also hosted a regional in 1996 at the Grand National Lakes Course.
The 2020 NCAA Men’s Golf Regional will take place at the AU Club as Auburn will serve as one of six sites. The selection is the men’s golf team’s third with the first two coming in 2003 and 2014.
The par 72, 18-hole golf course was opened in 1999 and designed by Bill Bergin, a four-time All-SEC selection and member of Auburn's 1981 SEC Championship team. It plays at 7,259 yards from the back tees.
Auburn Arena and the Auburn gymnastics program will host one of six NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Regional Championships, April 4, 2020. The squad last hosted the event in 2015, seeing the Tigers finish second overall and eventually reach the NCAA Super Six.
Auburn has previously hosted regional meets in 1991, 2012 and 2015. The Tigers hosted the 2006 NCAA Championship meet in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. The regional in 2020 will mark the third NCAA Regional meet in Auburn Arena.
