“We have a vastly different schedule this season,” Flesher said. “We added new venues, tougher competition and courses with higher ratings. I felt it was very important to put this young team against the best possible competition. The challenges they will face throughout the season will benefit them in the long run.”

The women’s golf team’s from all three programs will also take part.

High Point will compete in the Donald Ross Intercollegiate on Oct. 14-15. The tournament is hosted by Appalachian State at Mimosa Hills and is the only repeat tournament for HPU in the fall. Last year HPU finished fourth out of 17 teams in the field.

The Panthers will wrap up the fall at near-bye Grandover Resort on Oct. 26 as part of he Bridgestone Golf Collegiate hosted by UNC Greensboro.

The spring seasons opens on Feb. 16 at the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, S.C.
