The USC Upstate women’s golf team is set to open the A-Sun Championship on a course it has played two tournaments on within the last calendar year when it tees off at the Pine Lakes Course at the Jekyll Island Golf Resort on the coast of Georgia Monday.
Upstate and the nine other A-Sun schools will battle for the A-Sun Championship in a 54-hole tournament with 18 holes played each day Monday through Wednesday, April 14-16. Pine Lakes plays at 5,838 yards and is a par-72 layout. The Spartans finished eighth in last year’s Championship with rounds of 311, 316 and 307 for a 934 total score. The effort allowed the squad to finish with a 322.04 stroke average to break the all-time program record. Former standout Taylor Barnes led the Spartans in the tournament with a tie for 16th.
