Broncos to Host SCU Cabo Collegiate This Weekend

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Golf Digest's top rated course in Mexico, Querencia Los Cabos golf club, will be the site of the Santa Clara University Cabo Collegiate Saturday through Monday, October  2-4.

The 54-hole tournament will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday and run through Monday with 18 holes being played each day on the par-72, 7,070-yard layout in Cabos San Lucas. Nine of the 12 competing teams were ranked among GolfWeek's Top 100 a year ago.

The field includes Oregon State University, Lamar University, Southern Methodist University, University of Arkansas, University of California, Irvine, Saint Mary's College of California, University of the Pacific, The University of Texas at Arlington, University Houston, Boise State University, California State University, Northridge and Santa Clara University.

"The only thing we have been missing in our efforts to compete at the highest level is a top quality invitational," said Santa Clara head coach Rob Miller. "We've made every effort to attract the highest quality field and to host the event at the very best golf course. This is a big step for our program."

Santa Clara is currently ranked No. 53 in the first official team rankings released by GolfStat.com this week. Miller is armed with one of the top players in the country, the reigning West Coast Conference 'Player of the Year' Scott Travers, 2009 and 2010 U.S. Open Sectional qualifier Cory Mehl and the 2010 WCC 'Freshman of the Year' Rick Lamb.
