Women's Spring Schedule

The Women's team starts off competitive play at UTB's tournament at South Padre Golf Club Feb 21 and 22.

On March 1 and 2, the team plays in nearby Kerrville, TX at The Club at Commanche Trace. Nestled in the hill country, this course is fantastic and it should host a great tournament.

March 19-21, the team competes in Jekyll Island, Georgia at Oglethorpe's tournament. This tournament is during our Spring Break and has traditionally been one of the team's favorites.

March 29 and 30, the women travel to Georgetown, TX for the Southwestern Invitational. We will play at Berry Creek Country Club.

The SCAC Championship will be held April 22-24 at The Stone Mountain Golf Club in Georgia.

Men's Spring Schedule

As our student-athletes prepare for their fall exams and Christmas break, I'll take a look forward to our upcoming spring semester. Our season will begin late January as practices and workouts start-up.

Our tournament schedule kicks off in Laguna Vista, TX at South Padre Island Golf Club in a 54 hole event hosted by University of Texas at Brownsville on Feb. 21-22. This is our first year playing in this tournament and we are looking forward to the trip south.

We have a couple weeks off and then play during our school's spring break at TLU's spring tournament in Con Can, TX on March 15-16. We took 3rd place last year and will attempt to improve upon that finish with a course our guys are familiar with.

We have one day off and then we are catching a plane to head to Jekyll Island, GA to play at Oglethorpe's tournament March 19-21. This tournament has one of the best fields of the year. From last year's field, there are 6 teams in the 10 and 10 of the top 25 from the latest coaches poll (GolfWorld/Nike Golf). I am excited to see where we will stack up.

Our next tournament is the West Region hosted by Southwestern on April 12-13. This will have another great field with 8 teams in the top 25. We will play at TerraVista Golf Club in Round Rock, TX. If the wind blows like it usually does, it makes for a grueling 54 hole event where par is a great score.

Our SCAC Championship will be held in Stone Mountain, GA at the Stone Mountain Golf Club on April 22-24. With a bid to nationals and our conference championship on the line, there will be plenty to play for.

The NCAAs will be in Hershey, PA May 10-14. If we play up to our potential, we have the game to compete with anyone in the country. We have a lot of work to do between now and then, but I think this group of guys is willing to put in the time and effort.
