Spring Season Begins For Golfers Sunday In Arizona
BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland golf team will open the spring portion of its schedule this weekend, as it hosts the Loyola Intercollegiate at the Palm Valley Golf Course in Goodyear, Arizona. The three-day, 54-hole event will be played on the Palms Course beginning with two rounds on Sunday and the final round on Monday.
Sunday's first round will be a delayed start due to frost. Play will now begin with a 9 a.m. MST (11 a.m. ET) shotgun start. Monday's final round will be a shotgun start at 7:45 a.m. MST, followed by an award presentation after the conclusion of play.
This will mark the seventh-straight year the Greyhounds have competed at the tournament, formerly the Snowman Gateway, while it's the fifth-consecutive year Loyola has hosted the event.
