Appalachian State Men’s Golf Announce 2023 Schedule

App State Men’s Golf will play in seven events during the 2023 spring season, head coach Alan Cress announced Monday.

In their first fall under Cress’ direction, the Mountaineers posted their first team victory since 2018 and recorded the top two team rounds in program history, with four golfers shooting in the 60s each time. Addison Beam had a team-best 71.27 scoring average in the fall, followed by Lukas Jönsson at 72.33 and Colin Browning at 73.25.

App State will open the spring by having four individuals compete at the Wolfpack Invitational in Raleigh from Feb. 25-26. It will be the first of two spring appearances at Lonnie Poole Golf Course.

Team play gets underway in March, as App State is the tournament host for the Bash at The Beach at the Surf Golf and Beach Club in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. Last year, a final-round 63 from Sverrir Haraldsson and 12-under 272 from the team allowed the Mountaineers to place second in a 15-team field.

App State will then compete three times over the course of two weeks, starting with a Sunday-Monday appearance at the Seahawk Intercollegiate in Wilmington from March 26-27. The following Monday and Tuesday, from April 3-4, it will play at the Wofford Invitational in Spartanburg, S.C. The end of that week, from April 7-8, the Mountaineers have Friday and Saturday rounds at the Stitch Intercollegiate in Raleigh.

App State heads to State College, Pa., in mid-April as Penn State hosts the Rutherford Intercollegiate on that Saturday and Sunday (April 15-16).

The 2023 Sun Belt Championships will be held Sunday through Wednesday (from April 23-26) at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Miss. The event will feature three rounds of stroke play, with the top four teams advancing to a final day of semifinal and championship match play.

The Sun Belt has earned multiple bids to NCAA Regionals in each of the last three years.
