Eighteen women’s teams will compete on 54 holes at the Baytowne Golf Club while 18 men’s teams will compete at the Raven Golf Club. Among the teams competing include Methodist University, the reigning Division III men’s national champions. The squad they defeated for the title, LaGrange College, is also part of the highly competitive field.
