BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland golf team will conclude the fall portion of its 2015-16 schedule at the Kiawah Classic by Aramark. The three-day, 54-hole event will be played at the par 72, 7,100-yard Turtle Point Golf Club at the Kiawah Island Resort in South Carolina beginning Sunday, Nov. 1.
"This will be the largest tournament field that we have faced this fall," head coach Chris Baloga said. "Coming off a runner-up finish in our last outing, we'll have a chance to build off that momentum and close out the fall season against some highly ranked teams at a fantastic venue."
Played at the Jack Nicklaus designed Turtle Point Golf Club, the 22-team tournament field will feature three nationally ranked teams, including a pair in the top-10; No. 6 Duke and No. 9 Georgia Tech. No. 22 Virginia will also vie for the title, while 2014 tournament champion Winthrop returns. Charleston Southern, the tournament hosts, Augusta, Coastal Carolina, College of Charleston, Gardner-Webb, Georgia Southern, Jacksonville State, Louisiana Monroe, Maryland, Missouri, Newberry, Presbyterian, Radford, Rice, Richmond, USC Upstate, Virginia Tech and Loyola will round out the field.
Play will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday and Monday, with Tuesday being an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.
