UNF adds women's golf

Remember when University of North Florida announced it was cutting its women's swimming and diving team? And then it fairly quickly reinstated the team? Yeah, I had to look it up, too.
Well it looks like UNF is going even further and adding women's golf to its list of intercollegiate sports. The team will begin competition in 2012.
No mention at all of the previous flirtation with cuts. The addition of golf makes sense when considering conference affiliation. Every other Sun Conference school fields a women's golf team.
The addition of this team brings UNF's total teams to 18. Again, no word on whether this addition is a precursor to cuts in the future. When UNF made its original announcement conference affiliation was one of the reasons for the cut.
