A hail storm Thursday night dumped nearly a foot of hail on portions of Green Valley Ranch Golf Club and caused the final round of the 2024 Inspirato Colorado Women’s Open to be cancelled.

“Unfortunately, after assessing the course after last night’s storm that brought 10 to 12 inches of golf ball-sized hail, the course is closed indefinitely and we are unable to conduct the final round,” tournament officials announced early Friday. “The results through 36 holes are final.”
