EAST GREENSBORO – North Carolina A&T men’s golf releases its schedule for the 2019-20 season that features hosting the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) championships, April 13-15 at Bryan Park. Hosting the MEAC men’s golf championships is a plan that has come together for Aggies head coach Richard Watkins.

“When we started the golf programs, having the MEAC come here for their championship was a goal we set,” said Watkins. “For North Carolina A&T men’s golf to have an opportunity to showcase the magnificent and challenging golf course at Bryan Park is a great step in the right direction for the program. We are super excited about having the MEAC come to Greensboro.”

Bryan Park is a par-72, 7,057-yard course that opened in 1974 and was modified in 1988. It has Bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways. The course received four stars from Golf Digest and was selected as the best golf course in a Greensboro News & Record Reader’s Choice Tops In the Triad Contest.

Before the Aggies get to the MEAC championships in the program’s third season, the Aggies will open the season with the Black College Hall of Fame tournament in Atlanta, Sept. 27-28. The men then travel to Maryland for two tournaments beginning with the UMES Invitational, Oct. 15-16 in Princess Anne, Md., and the Towson Invitational, Oct. 19-20 in Towson, Md.

The last tournament of the fall semester is a trip to Savannah, Ga., for the Savannah State Invitational (Oct. 28-29). The Aggies begin the New Year with two trips to Daytona Beach, Fla., with the Lonnie Barton Invitational March 9-10 and the Bethune-Cookman University Invitational, March 12-13.

The next three tournaments are held in North Carolina with the Cape Fear Invitational (March 15-16) in Wilmington followed by the HBCU Invitational (March 30-31) in Raleigh.

This will be the first MEAC championship outside of Savannah since the MEAC reinstated men’s golf in 2014. The final tournament of the season is the PGA Works Championship in Port St. Lucie, Fla., May 8-10.
