The tournament took place at Pinehurst no. 8 in North Carolina, March 14th-16th 2018.

The Icelanders taking part in the tournament were: Ragnhildur Kristinsdóttir, from Golf Club Reykjavík, competing with her team Eastern Kentucky University (EKU); Eva Karen Björnsdóttir, from Golf Club Reykjavík and her team from The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) and Særós Eva Óskarsdóttir, from The Golf Club of Kópavogur and Garðabær (GKG) in Iceland and her team, Boston University.

We here in Iceland are extremely proud of our three competitiors – It´s not every day that so many Icelanders compete in the same golf tournament outside of Iceland, not to speak of in the US.
