On Wednesday, Shane Lyons, director of sport at West Virginia University, announced the 2021-22 golf schedule.
“We look forward to playing another challenging schedule in 2021-22,” said head coach Sean Covich in a WVU press release. “We have a great mix of well-known events with some new tournaments.”
The Mountaineers will resume their normal schedule, kicking off the fall season September 12-13 with The Gopher Invitational at Windsong Farm Golf Club in Maple Plain, Minnesota.
West Virginia is looking for his fourth invitational mountaineering title in a row at Pete Dye Golf Club in Bridgeport, West Virginia, October 4-5. The event was last played in April due to COVID-19 but will return to its normal place in the fall.
The Mountaineers will travel to Texas October 11-13 to compete in the Big 12 Match Play Championship at The Clubs in Houston Oaks. WVU will conclude its fall season at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere, Florida, hosted October 17-19 by the WVU and UCF.
The spring 2022 season begins February 7-8 at the Thomas Sharkey Individual Collegiate on the Georgia Southern Golf Course in Statesboro, Georgia.
The team portion of the spring program opens February 12-13 at the Gators Invitational in Gainesville, Florida at the Mark Bostick Golf Course.
From February 28 to March 2, the Mountaineers head west to Lake Las Vegas Intercollegiate at Reflection Bay Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada. WVU will return to Statesboro, Georgia March 18-20 to attend the Schenkel Invitational at the Forest Heights Country Club.
The Mountaineers wrap up March with their annual trip to The Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate March 27-29 at Bulls Bay Golf Club in Charleston, South Carolina.
The final regular season competition will be held April 1-3 in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Vanderbilt Legends Club.
The Big 12 Men’s Golf Championship takes place April 25-27 at the Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas.
The 2022 NCAA Regionals will be hosted in a variety of locations May 16-18, with teams advancing to the 2022 NCAA Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona from May 28 to June 3.
“I believe that with the squad we’re coming back and the talented newbies we have, we’re set for a great season,” said Covich. There are no free weeks with this schedule. We have to work hard, prepare well and do our best to have a chance at these events. But one of the reasons you come to West Virginia to attend the Premier Conference in college golf is because of an incredible regular season schedule. “
