ATLANTA – With one tournament under their belts to start the fall season, the Georgia State men’s golf team announced its spring schedule on Tuesday as the Panthers look to return to NCAA Regional play.
Georgia State opened the season just over a week ago at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate with a 13th place finish. The Panthers will compete three more times this fall including the Autotrader Collegiate Classic hosted by Georgia State Oct. 13-15, at Berkeley Hills Country Club in Duluth.

Two weeks later the Panthers will return to the Tiger Invitational at Grand National Golf Club in Opelika, Ala. Georgia State has finished in the top five in the event just across the state border in four of the last five years including a second-place finish in the 17-team field in 2018.
