Appalachian State University head men’s golf coach Bill Dicus announced his team’s spring schedule on Wednesday. The Mountaineers face tough competition in five events leading up to the
Southern Conference tournament on April 15-17 at Daniel Island, S.C.
Coming off of a solid fall season, Appalachian eases into the spring on Feb. 27-28 at the Pfeiffer Intercollegiate at Kannapolis, N.C.’s Irish Creek Golf Club.
The Mountaineers then host the second annual Bash at the Beach at the Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on March 11-13. ASU placed eighth at last year’s inaugural event.
ASU concludes its spring break trip at the Ohio Dominican Match Play event at Orlando, Fla.’s Reunion Golf Club on March 16-17.
Appalachian heads north to Williamsburg, Va. on March 25-27 for the C&F Bank Invitational at the Kingsmill Country Club.
The final SoCon Tournament preparations come at Wofford’s Coca-Cola Invitational on April 9-10 at the Country Club of Spartanburg. ASU placed 13th at the event last spring.
With four of last season’s five SoCon participants returning, ASU aims to improve on its 10th-place finish. The tournament moves to Ralston Creek at Daniel Island, S.C., near Charleston.
The regular season concludes with the sixth annual University Cup, held at Morganton, N.C.’s Mimosa Hills Country Club on April 22. ASU fell by a narrow margin to Western Carolina last season, in the co-ed event.
Dicus’ squad earned four top-six finishes in five fall tournaments, highlighted by the team’s win at the Hummingbird Intercollegiate. The team is led by five seniors and graduate student Dustin Hudson (Hildebran, N.C./East Burke).
