Auburn golf will travel to at least seven different states during the 2014-15 season as head coach Nick Clinard announced the program's tournament schedule on Monday. Clinard will take his team to Georgia, Virginia and Indiana in the fall and Hawaii, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina in the spring.
"We have put together a challenging schedule to prepare our team for the postseason," Clinard said. "The tournaments we will play in will test the team every time out. We will play on many different course layouts with different challenges all across the country."
The fall tournament schedule begins Sept. 5-7 at the Carpet Capital Collegiate at the Farm Golf Club at Dalton, Ga. The team will then travel for a pair of tournaments for the first time, playing in the Primland Collegiate Invitational at Primland Resort at Meadows of Dan, Va., Sept. 29-30 and the Sagamore Preview at the Sagamore Club at Noblesville, Ind., Oct. 13-14. The fall season ends at the US Collegiate Championship at the Golf Club of Georgia at Alpharetta, Ga., Oct. 17-19.
Auburn will play in six spring tournaments before the postseason. The team travels to Waikoloa, Hawaii, Feb. 5-7 for the Amer Ari Invitational on the King's Course for the third straight year. It will then play two straight in the state of Alabama, trying to defend its title at both the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate on the Crossings Course at Mobile Feb. 23-24 and then playing host to the Tiger Invitational at Grand National March 8-10.
The rest of the spring takes the team to the Schenkel Invitational at Forest Heights CC at Stateboro, Ga., March 20-22, the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate at Bulls Bay Golf Club at Awendaw, S.C., March 29-31 and the Gary Koch Invitational at Gaston CC at Gastonia, N.C., Apr. 6-7. Auburn won the Hootie at Bulls Bay in 2012 and 2014 and will be making its third appearance in four years at the Gary Koch Invitational.
The SEC Championships will once again be held at Seaside GC at Sea Island, Ga., Apr. 17-19. The six cities playing host to NCAA Regionals are Chapel Hill, N.C., New Haven, Conn., Lubbock, Texas, Noblesville, Ind., Bremerton, Wash., and San Diego, Calif., May 14-16.
