French Lick Resort — located in southern Indiana — has been chosen to host the Big Ten men’s and women’s golf championships starting in 2012. The course will also host the 2013 and 2014 championships.

This is the first time in history that both men’s and women’s teams will compete at the same time and on a neutral site.

The 2011 Big Ten men’s championship will be held in West Lafayette, Ind., and the women’s is scheduled to take place in Evanston, Ill.

The men’s championship will take place on the award-winning Pete Dye course at French Lick.

“The Big Ten coaches are excited to explore a neutral site for our championship, with the goal of creating more consistency, ensuring better competition weather, and making the Big Ten championships a first-class event showcasing our highly ranked golfers,” Iowa men’s golf head coach Mark Hankins said in a release.

“Personally, I will miss the variety of campus visits as in the past, but French Lick Resort has rolled out the red carpet for our championship, and our players will really enjoy the quality of the golf course and facilities.”
