Cullowhee, N.C. – Coming off a runner-up finish at the 2020 J.T. Poston Invitational at the Cateechee Golf Club in Hartwell, Ga., Western Carolina and head coach Tim Eckberg have added a third tournament to the squad’s amended fall 2020 schedule.
Western Carolina will now travel to College Grove, Tenn., for the Intercollegiate at The Grove on Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13. The Grove Club will serve as the host venue, playing at par-72, 7,368 yards. The 14-team, 36-hole tournament will feature 18 holes both days with teams playing much like they have all semester – six team members playing together with the top four scores from each round counting for the team score.
The Intercollegiate at The Grove will be conducted under strict COVID policies including temperature checks each day, assigned range and tee times with physical distancing and face coverings required when distancing cannot be achieved. Spectators will be allowed, but will not have the option of renting golf carts.
