Virginia women’s golf coach Ria Scott and men’s golf coach Bowen Sargent announced the 2022-23 schedules for their respective programs on Monday.

The Cavalier women’s team currently has eight regular season tag team events and will make a return trip to the Guadalajara Country Club Collegiate Invitational in Mexico. UVA will play at three NCAA regional venues (Stanford, NC State and Georgia) during the season.

The men’s team will play 10 regular season tag team events, including a trip to Puerto Rico, and host the second annual Lewis Chitengwa Memorial in April at Birdwood Golf Course.

Women’s Schedule

Last spring at the NCAA Championships, the Cavaliers got together for a team photo with Hall of Famer Annika Sörenstam. This fall, the team opens its season at its Annika Invitational at the Royal Golf Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota, September 12-14. Next up for the Hoos will be the Mercedes Benz Intercollegiate at Cherokee Country Club in Knoxville, Tennessee.

UVA returns to the Windy City Collegiate Classic on October 3-4. This year’s event will be held at the Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Illinois. The team wraps up the fall with a trek west to Stanford Intercollegiate Oct. 21-23 at Stanford Golf Club.

The Cavaliers open the spring play at the Guadalajara Country Club Collegiate Invitational in Guadalajara, Mexico on Feb. 5-6. Virginia won the inaugural event in 2019 in the team’s final tournament before the pandemic ended the rest of the season.

Next up will be a familiar UVA stop. The Cavalier will compete in the Darius Rucker Invitational at the Long Cove Club in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, from February 27 through March 1. For the second consecutive season, the event will be broadcast by Golf Channel.

The Cavaliers wrap up the regular season with a trip to NC State’s Wolfpack Match Play event at Lonnie Poole Golf Club in Raleigh on April 3-4.

“When players come to UVA, they know they’ll be playing one of the strongest tournament schedules in the country,” Scott said. “We believe that having the opportunity to test our players against the best, week after week, makes them more ready to compete for championships. It’s a program that gives them fantastic travel experiences and compete at exceptional golf venues.

The 2023 ACC Championships returns to Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina for this year’s event which runs April 13-16.

We are truly honored to have this opportunity. Combine the course quality with a top 20 schedule and the upcoming schedule should challenge our team and help us grow as we work toward the ACC and NCAA.
