WEST POINT, N.Y. -- Five tournaments, including one at West Point and the annual dual match against Navy highlight the 2013 fall golf schedule, fourth-year Army head coach Brian Watts announced today.
Army will travel to New York, Tennessee and California as part of its fall slate and host the Stars and Stripes Invitational in early October.
"We've put together a fall schedule that will allow us to compete against some great teams on championship golf courses," said Watts. "We're looking forward to hosting the Stars and Stripes Invitational at West Point Golf Club in October. This will allow most of the Patriot League schools the opportunity to see the golf course before the Patriot League Championships in April."
The Black Knights open the season Sept. 7 at the two-day Colgate Invitational at Seven Oaks Golf Course in Hamilton, N.Y.
A week later, Army will trek to Farmingdale, N.Y., to play The McGlaughlin at famed Bethpage State Park's Red Course.
On the heels of last year's 8.5-2.5 win over Navy, the Black Knights will travel to Annapolis, Md., for the annual dual match. The Ryder Cup formatted event will feature four four-ball matches and seven singles matches Sept. 27 and 28.
Army will host the Stars and Stripes Invitational Oct. 6 and 7 at West Point Golf Course.
A week later, the Black Knights will head to Jonesborough, Tenn., for the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate on Oct. 11-13.
Army will close out the fall portion of the season at the Pacific Invitational at Stockton Country Club. The three day event begins Oct. 30 in Stockton, Calif.
While the spring schedule is still being finalized, Army will host the Patriot League Championships April 26 and 27. It marks the sixth time Army has hosted. The winner of the tournament earns the league's automatic bid to NCAA Regionals.
