Men's Golf Releases 2016-17 Schedule
Head Coach Brad Stracke's Program Looks Ahead To Challenging Slate
DENTON - The schedule for the 2016-17 North Texas men's golf program was released Wednesday, head coach Brad Stracke announced.
"This year's schedule is by far the most competitive we have had since I started coaching at North Texas seven years ago," Stracke said. "We have added two of the most prestigious tournaments in college golf; the Tavistock Intercollegiate and the Valspar Intercollegiate. Our schedule was already very competitive, but our strength of schedule should be in the top 30."
The Mean Green open the fall season at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate in Zionsville, Indiana, on Sept. 10-11. They continue at the Bayou City Collegiate Invitational in Pearland, Texas Oct. 10-11 before heading to the Tavistock in Orlando the following weekend (Oct. 16-18). North Texas concludes the fall portion of its schedule at the Quail Valley Intercollegiate in Vero Beach, Florida, Oct. 24-25.
The spring part of the schedule kicks off at the SunTrust Gator Invitational in Gainesville, Florida, Feb. 18-19 before the Mean Green heads to The Hayt in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, from Feb. 24-26. North Texas heads to the west coast for the Lakin Grips San Diego Classic from March 13-14 ahead of a trip to Palm City, Florida, for The Floridian Collegiate Invitational March 19-21. The regular season concludes with a pair of April tournaments with The Aggie Invite in College Station (April 8-9) and The Maxwell in Ardmore, Oklahoma, from April 16-17.
Last season, the Mean Green earned an at-large bid for the 2016 NCAA Tucson Regional for the second time in school history, following a third place finish at the Conference USA championships.
