PHOENIX, Md. – For the first time ever, Towson University golf fans will have the opportunity to watch both the Tiger men’s and women’s golf teams competing at the same location during ‘Baltimore’s College Golf Weekend’ on September 8-10. Both teams will be hosting tournaments during the three-day span at the Towson Golf and Country Club.

“We are really excited for the opportunity to bring men’s and women’s college golf to Baltimore,” said Tiger women’s golf head coach Kate Stepanek. “The weekend will be full of activity and great golf! We have such an amazing city and want to showcase the first collegiate golf weekend in Baltimore.”

The men’s team will host the STX Match Play from September 8-10. The first-year event will feature a strong field that includes Rutgers, George Mason, Bethune-Cookman, Fairfield, Fairleigh-Dickinson, Stevenson and California University of Pennsylvania.

“In the 15 years we have been hosting intercollegiate events, this is the first opportunity we have had to run a tournament in our backyard,” said head men’s golf coach Brian Yaniger. “Working in partnership with both STX Putters and the Towson Golf and Country Club, our supporters and fans and those who are fans of golf can now come out and see a Division I men's collegiate event.”

Play for the men’s tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday morning and Monday afternoon.

The women’s team will host the Tignanelli Towson Invitational September 9-10. The talented field of 18 teams includes St. John’s, Delaware, William & Mary and defending champion Old Dominion.

Live scoring will be available for the women's tournament and fans who can’t be in attendance can also stay close to all the action through twitter updates by following @Towson_MGOLF and @Towson_WGOLF.
