Lady Bucs to Kickoff Season at Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic February 19, 2011
CHARLESTON, S.C. – After a long hiatus, the CSU women’s golf team will stick close to home to start the 2011 spring season as they compete in the Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic on the Oak Point and Cougar Point Golf Courses February 20-22 on Kiawah Island.
The competition will be strong, as 12 of the 33 schools competing are ranked in the top 100. Akron, Arkansas State, No. 36 Florida International, Tennessee State, Nebraska, Miami and Iowa are among the teams expected to compete at the event, which will be hosted by the College of Charleston.
The Oak Point Golf Course is a par-72 and is 5,907 yards long. It was designed by Clyde Johnson on a plantation that at one time grew tomatoes and indigo. Cougar Point, also a par-72, is slightly longer at 6,001 yards from the women’s tees.
Practice rounds will begin on Saturday, with rounds one and two teeing off on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The third and final round will tee off in a shotgun start at 8:45 on Monday morning.
