Some of the top college golfers in the East will gather at Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville, Md. on March 28 and 29 to compete in the 11th Annual Towson Invitational Collegiate Golf Tournament.
The tournament, hosted by Towson University, will feature players from 17 colleges. In addition to Towson, those competing will represent Kent State, North Carolina Greensboro, Boston College, Georgetown, Drexel, Rutgers, Siena, Cornell, Long Island University, Longwood, Loyola, Seton Hall, Delaware and William and Mary. Players from both the U.S. Naval Academy and U.S. Military Academy will be competing as well adding a bit of Army/Navy rivalry to the competition. Kent State is the highest ranked team competing.
This is the third year for the tournament at Prospect Bay Country Club. Spectators are welcome to follow the golfers on the course and admission is free.
“This has become a signature event in the spring that a lot of college teams want to play in,” said Towson head golf coach, Brian Yaniger. “We have a great course to play and it’s a first class event that is certainly comparable to any tournament these golfers will play in their collegiate careers.”
