EAST GREENSBORO – North Carolina A&T women’s golf has experienced tremendous success for a young program. They look to be even more successful as the 2019-20 season approaches.

N.C. A&T released their schedule recently with four tournaments to be played in the fall semester and six tournaments to be played in the spring semester. Last season the Aggies won two tournaments and finished second in two others.

There should be more success coming. Women’s golf, which enters its fourth year of existence, now has talented and experienced golfers in sophomore Christyn Carr, junior Madison Harriman and senior Jocelyn Andrews. Coupled with some key newcomers, the Aggies are prepared for more tournament victories.

The season begins Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the Elon University Invitational. It will be the Aggies first time playing in the tournament. The next week, however, they will return to a familiar place – the Starmount Forest Country Club.

For the fourth straight season, the Aggies will participate in the Starmount Fall Classic hosted by UNC Greensboro, Sept. 30-Oct. 1. The course sets up as one of the toughest the Aggies will face throughout the season.

A week later, N.C. A&T will be back in action in Rock Hill, S.C., for the Winthrop Invitational on Oct. 7. The fall semester ends with the Aggies returning to the SSU Tiger Invitational hosted by Savannah State University, Oct. 28-29.

After nearly fourth months away from competition, the Aggies return to competitive play starts with the Oyster Shuck Match Play tournament in Charleston, S.C., Feb. 24-25. Match play matches a golfer from one team against a golfer from the other team.  The two golfers then compete to see who can win the most holes. The winner is determined by who reaches the cup in fewer strokes.

Over the next two weeks following the match-play event, the Aggies will head to Daytona Beach, Fla., for two tournaments within the same week. The Aggies will compete in the Lonnie Barton Invitational hosted by LIU Brooklyn, March 9-10. It will be their third straight season competing in the tournament.

Two days later, the Aggies will compete in the Bethune-Cookman Invitational, March 12-13. The Aggies will stay south for the Bama Beach Bash in Gulf Shores, Ala., March 20-22. It is their first and only three-day tournament of the season.

Two prestigious tournaments will close out the season as the Aggies will compete in the National Women’s Collegiate Golf Championships, April 20-21 in Atlanta before heading down to Port St. Lucie, Fla., for the PGA Works Championships May 8-10. Carr finished third last season in the Independent Women’s Division.
