The Pine Ridge Golf Club [formerly called Springfield Golf Club], one of Oregon’s premier golf courses, will be the site of the Bill Dellinger Invitational. Athletes will race entirely on grass and mostly on fairways. The course consists of two relatively flat loops—an outer loop, and a finish loop. The outer loop is approximately 2320 meters in length, and the finishing loop is approximately 1350 meters in length. Spikes are recommended for competition. Men will run 8,000m, women 6,000m.
The Bill Dellinger XC Invitational is named for legendary University of Oregon men’s track and field coach Bill Dellinger. The Springfield, Oregon, native and two-time NCAA champion for the Ducks was a three-time Olympian, the 1964 Olympic bronze medalist at 5,000 meters, and holder of two world indoor and six American records. In cross country, he took pride in the fact that he never lost a race as a high school, college, or post-collegiate athlete.
As the Oregon men’s cross country head coach from 1968-1998, Dellinger guided the Ducks to four NCAA team titles and 12 top-three NCAA finishes. Athletes under his mentorship received 45 cross country All-America honors. His squads also stockpiled 13 conferences and four district team victories, and Duck individuals scored eight Pac-8/10 championships and six regional crowns.
