The CMU Board of Trustees announced on December 6, 2012 the addition of women's golf and lacrosse as NCAA Division I sport programs. Women's golf was last sponsored as a CMU varsity sport in 1982. A complete competition schedule will resume in 2014-15 when CMU will become the 10th Mid-American Conference institution to field a women's golf team.
The Michigan High School Athletics Association recognized 327 girls' golf teams for the 2012-13 season.
Additional information about the history of women's golf at CMU may be found in the "Additional Links" box on all women's golf web pages.
