NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- In what promises to be one of the most competitive conference tournaments in the country, the Notre Dame women's golf team is set to compete in the 31st Annual ACC Women's Golf Championship from April 18-20 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

A total of 10 of the 12 teams that comprise the ACC women's golf membership are slotted in the top 50 of the latest Golfstat women's college golf rankings entering the conference championship. The three-day tournament will take place at the championship course at Sedgefield Country Club. The No. 11 seed Irish will get underway at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday and, paired with No. 10 Virginia Tech and No. 12 Boston College, will start on hole one.

This weekend's tournament marks Notre Dame's sixth ACC Championship appearance since joining the conference in 2014 and the fourth Irish start at Sedgefield Country Club. Notre Dame tied for fifth at the 2014 ACC tournament (306-303-296=905) and placed sixth at the 2015 conference tournament (287-295-294=876) during the first two Irish ACC appearances at the venue.

Following a 10th-place showing for Notre Dame last season at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center East Course, also located in Greensboro, the ACC Championship returns to Sedgefield Country Club for the ninth time in the past 11 years.

"We're excited to be returning to Sedgefield Country Club for the ACC Championship this year," Notre Dame head coach Susan Holt said. "It is a very challenging course that will require us to manage our games a lot better than we have been. We have the talent to compete we just need to execute better come tournament time."
