EMORY, Va. – With the "rebirth" of the Emory & Henry College Men's Golf program just weeks away, Head Coach Justin Harvey is pleased to announce the team's schedule for the 2016-17 season. The Wasps will play in four tournaments over the months of September and October, and add four more tournaments during the spring semester, their first action since the program was disbanded following the 2007-08 season.
"Our fall schedule is extremely exciting because we will immediately be able to get experience against ODAC teams and see how we stand," said Harvey. "This will drive us to be ready for the spring part of our season and the ODAC Championship Tournament."
First up for E&H is the Shenandoah University Invitational at the Winchester Country Club on Sunday, September 18 and Monday, September 19.
The Wasps will next compete on Monday and Tuesday, September 26 and 27 at the King University Invitational. This tournament is set to be played at the Country Club of Bristol (Tenn.).
