Volunteers of America, LPGA,

The LPGA heads to The Colony, Dallas Texas for the Volunteers of America event at the Old American G.C. A Tripp Davis and Justin Leonard creation a 7084 yard Par 71 for the men, but for the ladies this week it’s 6517 yards par 71 the men’s slope of 145 and Course rating of 75.2 is probably relevant as this course is considered a copy of traditional old school design, featuring well trapped greens and interesting slopes. The ladies seem to be playing much more interesting courses than the PGA tour.
