COLUMBUS, Ohio – In 2017-18, the Ohio State University men’s golf program will play in eight different states/territories spanning four different time zones, including the Atlantic time zone for a tournament hosted in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.
Pebble Beach marks the start of a new Buckeye season for the third straight year as Ohio State battles in the ultra-competitive Carmel Cup (Sept. 1-3) on one of America’s finest golf courses. The Buckeyes remain in-state for the next two tournaments, playing on prestigious tracks for the Inverness Invitational (Sept. 18-19) in Toledo and Bearcat Invitational (Sept. 25-26) held at the Coldstream Country Club (Cincinnati).
A pair of October events put an end to the fall slate, sending Ohio State to the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational in Portland (Oct. 1-3) and westward down I-70 for the Dayton Intercollegiate (Oct. 16-17).
Spring ’18 starts with match play in the Sunshine State in the form of the Big Ten Match Play Championship (Feb. 9-10) contested at the Hammock Beach Resort. Ohio State then flies to the Caribbean for the Puerto Rico Classic (Feb. 18-20) prior to March’s lone competition, the Linger Longer Invitational (March 18-20) in Greensboro, Ga.
April, meanwhile, is filled with three tournaments played during a back-to-back-to-back weekend stretch. The Boilermaker Invitational (April 14-15) and Robert Kepler Intercollegiate (April 21-22) represent the regular season conclusion. Following the Kepler, Ohio State fans will receive another chance to check out their Buckeyes on the home course as the Scarlet Course has been picked as a 2018 NCAA Regional (May 14-16) host site. The top-five Columbus Regional finishers will advance to the NCAA Championships (May 25-30) in Stillwater, Okla., at the Karsten Creek Golf Club.
