As the 2012-13 season came to an end at the Southern Conference Championship, Appalachian State University men’s golf head coach Bill Dicus announced his 2013-14 schedule, highlighted by the Donald Ross Intercollegiate, a tournament the Mountaineers will host in October.
Dicus’ team returns three of its five starters from the SoCon Tournament, as two-time all-SoCon honoree, Casey Komline, looks to lead the Mountaineers for the third-straight season in stroke average. Also returning are Lee Mitchell and Caleb Keck who became the first Appalachian golfers to be named to the SoCon all-freshmen team.
App State begins its fall schedule on Sept. 9 in the Palmetto State for the Spring Hill Suites Invitational at the Country Club of South Carolina in Florence, S.C. Last season, the Apps placed 12th in the 16-team field. The Mountaineers remain south of the border for the two-day Myrtle Beach Fall Invitational at Myrtle Beach National. This will be the first time Appalachian will play a fall tournament in Myrtle Beach since the 2004 season.
One completing its South Carolina road trip, the Apps head north to Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland, Ohio for the John Telich Invitational on Oct. 7. The Mountaineers recorded their best finish of the fall slate last season at the Invitational, placing third in the 11-team field.
The Apps return to the High Country on Oct. 14 to host the Donald Ross Intercollegiate at Mimosa Hills Country Club in Morganton, N.C. Appalachian looks to improve on a 10th place finish a year ago.
Entering November, the Mountaineers close their fall schedule with a trip to Cashiers, N.C. for the Hummingbird Intercollegiate at the Country Club of Sapphire. In 2012, App State claimed eighth place in the event hosted by Western Carolina.
After returning from winter break, the Appalachian will send individual players to the Pfeiffer Intercollegiate on Feb. 24 for a two-day event. Appalachian hosts its second tournament of the 2013-14 season at the Bash at the Beach in North Myrtle Beach. The two-day event begins on March 10 at the Surf Golf and Beach Club. Last season, the Apps tied for seventh in the 11-team field.
The Apps continue south on March 15 for the two-day, Mission Inn Spring Spectacular in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. Last season, the tournament was the second-largest event of the spring.
After leaving the Sunshine State, the Mountaineers head north to Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va. for the Kingsmill Intercollegiate on March 23, hosted by William & Mary. Last spring, the event was shortened to just one day due the inclement weather in the area.
The Mountaineers step away from their tournament schedule on March 27 for the University Cup on March 27. Appalachian looks to retain the U-Cup, after falling to WCU 7-6 a season ago. The Black and Gold remain in North Carolina a week later at the Irish Creek Intercollegiate on April 5 in Kannapolis, N.C. App State looks to improve on a 16th place finish at the tournament from a season ago.
Appalachian’s penultimate tournament will be in Spartanburg, S.C. for the Coca-Cola Wofford Intercollegiate on April 14. Keck took medalist honors at the event last season, as the managed tto tie for fourth in the 16-team field.
The 2014 Southern Conference Championship will be held in Daniel Island, S.C. at Ralston Creek on April 20. The three-day event will be the last SoCon Tournament the Mountaineers will play in, as the team moves to the Sun Belt Conference in the fall of 2014.
