CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia men’s golf coach Bowen Sargent announced the program’s 2022-23 schedule today (July 25). The Cavaliers will play 10 regular-season team events including a trip to Puerto Rico and will host the second annual Lewis Chitengwa Memorial in April at Birdwood Golf Course.
The Cavaliers’ fall season includes four events. UVA opens the season Sept. 12 at the two-day Streamsong Invitational in Bowling Green, Fla., at Streamsong Resort’s Blue course. The team then makes a visit to fabled Inverness Golf Club in Toledo, Ohio for the Inverness Collegiate on Sept. 26-27. UVA last played in the Inverness Collegiate in 2018, tying for second behind the individual title won by Thomas Walsh.
For the second consecutive season, the Cavaliers travel to the Empire State to play. This year they will compete at the Maidstone Invitational on Long Island. Held at Maidstone Golf Cub, the tournament runs Oct. 3-4.
On Oct. 22-23 the Cavaliers return to the Golf Club of Georgia Invitational in Alpharetta, Ga. to wrap up the fall campaign.
A group of UVA individuals will open spring play Feb. 6-7 at the Thomas Sharkey Invitational in Statesboro, Ga.. The first spring team event is the Dorado Beach Invitational on Feb. 26-28 at TPC Dorado in Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico. It is UVA’s first international trip since the 2007-08 season.
Virginia heads to Pinehurst on March 6-7 for the Pinehurst Intercollegiate at the legendary Pinehurst No. 2 course.
Virginia competes at some of its traditional spring events in March. UVA plays at the General Hackler in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on March 13-14 at the Dunes Club. The Linger Longer Invitational is set for March 19-21 at Reynolds Plantation’s Great Waters course in Greensboro, Ga., and then UVA plays at the Augusta-Haskins Invitational at Forest Heights Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.
The Cavaliers will be the reigning champions for their second-annual Lewis Chitengwa Memorial that takes place April 10-11 at Birdwood Golf Course in Charlottesville to wrap-up the regular season. The event honors the former Cavalier standout who lettered at UVA from 1995 to 1998.
Last year the Cavaliers won the 13-team event and were led by George Duangmanee’s third-place finish.
“The team is excited to play a such competitive schedule, one that includes some of the best courses in the world,” Sargent said. “To play top 100 courses like Streamsong, Inverness, Maidstone, Pinehurst No. 2 in a season speaks to the level of commitment on behalf of so many people around the country. We are truly honored to have this opportunity. Combine the quality of courses with a top-20 strength of schedule and the upcoming schedule should provide a challenge for our team and assist us in developing as we work towards ACCs and NCAAs.”
The postseason starts with the ACC Championships which will take place April 21-24 in Pinehurst, N.C., at the Country Club of North Carolina.
NCAA Regional play is scheduled for May 15-17 with competition set to be hosted by Auburn, Clemson, Michigan State, UNLV, Oklahoma and San Jose State.
The NCAA Championships return to Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. The national championship tournament is scheduled for May 26-31.
