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 1 was contested at 6,114 yards for the Championship Division.
Weather: The temperature reached 95 degrees with steady winds at 9 mph out of the southwest.
In Contention: Hardin, the first LPGA Tour player from Mexico, carded five birdies for her tournament-leading 74. Her ability to get up and down from around the green was the key to her success during Thursday’s round.
“I made a bunch of birdies which was very fortunate,” Hardin said. “Overall, I am very pleased with my round and you know just come out and have another good day and be thankful for everything I can do.”
Hailey Jones of Dallas and Zoe Paige Slaughter of Houston are tied second at 3-over-par and one shot off the lead. Jennie Park of Carrollton, Nicole Vivier of Austin, Serena Shah of Carrollton and Madison Freeman of Spring are tied fourth at 4-over-par. Three players in the Championship Division are tied eighth at 5-over-par and three shots off the lead.
In the Flights Division, Rosalinda Adams of Spring carded a 9-over 81 and sits two shots off the lead. Karen Northcutt of The Woodlands sits solo third after a 11-over 83. Nancy Beck of Dallas and Lee Ann Riley of Dallas are tied fourth at 12-over-par.
What’s Next: Round 2 starts Friday at 8:00 a.m. off No. 1 tee at Crown Colony Country Club.
