ATLANTA – Georgia State women’s golf coach Cathy Mant announced the team’s five-tournament fall schedule on Thursday, highlighted by a pair of tournaments in Florida and an event at Atlanta Athletic Club to conclude October.

The fall season opens Sept. 22-24, at the Lady Paladin Invitational in Greenville, S.C. The annual event hosted by Furman brings together some of the top teams in the country.

Georgia State will return to the Jacksonville Classic Oct. 2-3, at Marsh Landing Country Club to open the month. The Panthers finished sixth in the event last year and will be making their third-straight appearance in the northeast Florida event.

The Panthers will return to the Pinehurst Challenge for a second-straight year Oct. 9-10, before heading to Florida for the FIU Pat Bradley Classic at Lakewood Ranch Golf Club for the third-straight year. Georgia State finished eighth at the event last year as rising-sophomore Harmanprit Kaur placed 12th.

The fall season will conclude with the Ladies Fall Classic hosted by Louisville at Atlanta Athletic Club in nearby Johns Creek. It will mark the third-straight fall that Georgia State has played in Louisville’s annual event that has been played in the state of Georgia each year.

“I think we have put together a very good fall schedule,” head coach Cathy Mant said. “We finished the spring on such a positive note and have two recruits coming in who I think will make an immediate impact. Hopefully we can have a great summer of practice and get things rolling on the right foot in September.”

The Panthers finished the 2016-17 season by placing second at the Sun Belt Championship, nearly pulling off what would have been a remarkable victory to send Georgia State back to postseason play.

Georgia State returns three starters from last year and has already signed two international freshmen for the upcoming year. Practice will begin after student-athletes return to Georgia State in late August.
