I was there (drove down from NYC) and it was SPECTACULAR! Thanks to Mike Whan, the teams and Caves Valley for giving us this new reason to be excited about women's golf.

The golf was top notch, the course was in excellent condition, the viewing stands and concessions were well positioned and the weather was perfect. The leaderboards were a little difficult to read though.

Most exciting moment for me:  I met Nancy Lopez in the ladies room and she was so sweet getting ready for her signing.

The vibe on the first tee was so much fun - great music, flags waving and Mike Whan throwing out hats and tee-shirts to the crowd.

I am proud to have been  a part of the Inaugural International Crown and will never forget this wonderful experience. Can't wait for my next LPGA event!

I’m sure you’re exhausted right now, but wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the LPGA International Crown this week.  I attended Tues, Thur and Sat, and in all instances, all people working the event couldn’t have been nicer – paid as well as volunteer staff.  Caves Valley was in fabulous shape, paths were easily traversed, and the signage with a nod to each participating country was quite meaningful.  It was a real treat to see these great athletes perform only a few feet away.

Thank you for a great tournament experience.

Fantastic event this weekend.  I watched every minute on the Golf Channel and was glued to the TV.  Kudo’s to the LPGA for the International Crown and congratulations to Spain and all the young ladies who participated.  I can’t wait to see Spain defend her Crown.

Loved the inaugural International Crown event.  With the U.S out on Saturday I  personally didn't think I would enjoy watching the Sunday matches, but WOW was I wrong.  I loved watching Spain win the crown.  Their personalities were so animated.  Man what a complete team.  Can't wait until next year.  Go USA...

Thanks for a great event.  Greg
