Rich Harvest Farms Hosts Northern Illinois University’s 2017 Northern Intercollegiate

Rich Harvest Farms Hosts Northern Illinois University’s 2017 Northern Intercollegiate

SUGAR GROVE, IL – Fresh off the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships, Rich Harvest Farms has resumed hosting duties of Northern Illinois University’s Northern Intercollegiate. What once began with an idea to bring the best schools in America to Rich Harvest Farms for a collegiate golf tournament has now become the signature event of the college golf season, thanks in large part to the guidance and generous support of the Rich Family.

The University of Virginia, No. 17 to finish the 2016-2017 season, finished 10th at the NCAA Championship at Rich Harvest Farms and is looking to capitalize on their familiarity of the course. Iowa State and Purdue also competed at the NCAA Championships, but failed to make the first cut, finishing 18 and 28 respectively. Trent Wallace of Illinois State qualified for the NCAA Championship as an individual and completed his season T86 shooting even par over three rounds. He will be returning with the entire Illinois State University team.

The last time the Northern Intercollegiate was contested at Rich Harvest Farms, University of Illinois dominated the field with a -7 finish as a team and 27 shots better than second place Purdue.
