   About the Tournament

The O'Brien National Invitational was first played in the fall of 2009 at the Warren Golf Course at the University of Notre Dame. The tournament is an elite event that invites the top 10 teams in NCAA Division III women's golf to South Bend for two days of highly competitive golf. All of the visiting teams will be staying on the College campus at the Inn at Saint Mary's. The tournament is made possible through the generosity of Tim, Diane, and Katie O’Brien ’08.
