When the United States Golf Association packed up its corporate tents after the 2002 Senior Open concluded, Caves Valley returned to its roots as a private club that was selective in the tournaments it hosted. Mandated to promote the amateur ranks, the Owings Mills club welcomed a handful of events in the intervening years - none involving professionals. That will change in the summer of 2014, when the Ladies Professional Golf Association's inaugural International Crown comes to Baltimore County for a four-day, match-play event featuring four-player teams from eight different countries.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

Hall of Fame golfer Carol Mann's career path was set when she couldn't see her head in a mirror made for young ballerinas to study their movements. "I made my ballet debut at the Lyric Theatre [in Chicago], in a little-kids ballet," recalled Mann, who grew up in Rodgers Forge and lived there until her parents moved to Chicago after her freshman year at Notre Dame Prep. "That was my first experience of performing in the public.

There is no near-term downside to the Baltimore area enjoying a week at the center of the golf universe in late July. The inaugural LPGA International Crown, which will bring together 32 top women from eight countries for a new-concept team competition at Caves Valley Golf Club, is going to be a major event with significant global reach. And we're not even going to have to tear up any light rail tracks or turn downtown into a traffic nightmare to make it possible. There are no major infrastructure issues like the ones that made the Baltimore Grand Prix such a tough sell and there is nothing to boil the blood of local commuters and jilted business owners - just a classy showcase event at a classy location that will show off both Baltimore City and Baltimore County to millions of potential visitors worldwide.
