Nashville, Tenn. --- The Tennessee State University women's golf team will gear up for the 2012 Ohio Valley Conference Women's Championship this upcoming Sunday at Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn.

The 54-hole, three day tournament will consist of three rounds with round one set to begin on April 22. The third and final round is slated for Tuesday (4/24) and will close with the team trophy presentation.

Designed by PGA Tour pro Mark McCumber, GreyStone is a public course that has hosted numerous high profile events. It has served as home of the 2002 PGA Tour First Round Qualifying, Men's and Women's Tennessee State Opens 1999 through 2003, the 2000 PGA Tour First Round Qualifying and the Monday Qualifying for the BellSouth Senior PGA Tour event.

This marks the third consecutive year that GreyStone has hosted the OVC Women's Championship. The teams will play to a par-72, 5,964-yard course for the tournament.

The OVC women's golf title will be contested amongst the eight women's teams that sponsor the sport - Austin Peay, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Murray State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.

The student-athletes will begin with a practice round on Saturday before the opening round starts on Sunday at 8:00 a.m.

Last year, TSU finished the OVC Championship tournament in eighth place.

The annual awards banquets will be held following Sunday's first-round play honoring the All-OVC first-team and second-team members as well as All-Newcomer Team and Freshman of the Year.

The champion of the tournament will represent the OVC in NCAA Regional Play.
