The Northern Arizona golf program has released its schedule for the 2019 fall and 2020 spring seasons. The Lumberjacks will be competing in five tournaments in the fall and spring, with the Big Sky Conference Championships taking place from April 20-22.
The fall season will see four tournaments the Lumberjacks played during the 2018 campaign. Northern Arizona will open the year at the same tournament it did in 2018 at the Hobble Creek Fall Classic hosted by Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah, in late September. Later that month they will travel to Idaho for the Coeur d'Alene Collegiate Invitational hosted by Gonzaga University from the April 23-24.
To start October, Northern Arizona will be in the Land of Enchantment for the Aggie Invitational in Las Cruces, New Mexico, hosted by New Mexico State University. Northern Arizona will make its way to Lakewood Ranch, Florida, for the 42nd annual FIU Pat Bradley Invitational hosted by Florida International University toward the end of the month, with that tournament being the only one on the fall schedule that Northern Arizona did not compete in last fall. The Lumberjacks will close out the fall season in Boulder City, Nevada, at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown hosted by UNLV from the Oct. 27-29.
The spring season looks to have Northern Arizona competing in Arizona three times during the regular season and once during Big Sky Conference Championships. On Feb. 17, the Lumberjacks will open the spring season at the Rebel Beach Intercollegiate tournament, which will be co-hosted by UNLV and Long Beach State in Las Vegas. Three days after that the Lumberjacks will be in the Grand Canyon Invitational hosted by GCU from Feb. 21-22 in Phoenix. Northern Arizona's last tournament outside of the Grand Canyon State will take place from March 9-10 in Fairfax, California, at the Juli Inkster at Meadow Club Invitational, co-hosted by the University of San Fransisco and San Jose State.
In later March, Northern Arizona will host its lone home tournament at the Red Rocks Invitational in Sedona. They will close out the spring season at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in Maricopa in April before competing in the conference championships in Scottsdale.
"I am really excited about our schedule for he upcoming fall and spring seasons," said head women's golf coach Brad Bedortha. "We have a few new tournaments, which are really good events and will improve the strength of our schedule. Overall, I am excited to compete in all of the tournaments and am grateful that we have received the invites to attend them."
