Golf Course: Nestled in the tall pines of East Texas, Crown Colony Country Club originally opened for play in 1979. The beautiful and challenging layout located in Lufkin is a Robert von Hagge and Bruce Devlin design that has been rated by Golfweek as one of the top destination golf courses in Texas. The 18-hole championship golf course has played host to eight TGA Major Championships (the 1982 and 1988 Texas Amateur, 1989 and 2007 Women’s Texas Amateur, 1994 Texas Mid-Amateur, 1983 Texas Senior Amateur and the 2012 and 2017 Texas Four-Ball). Now, it adds the Women’s Stroke Play Championship to its decorated history. Round 2 is being contested at 6,086 yards for the Championship Division.
Weather: Up until 1:30 p.m., the temperature reached 90 degrees with winds out of the southwest reaching gusts of 26 mph. Play was suspended at 1:30 p.m. due to lightning in the area. Play for the day was suspended at 5:30 p.m. due to unplayable conditions. Round 2 will resume Saturday morning.
