ALBANY, N.Y. –The University at Albany's women's golf head coach Colleen Cashman-McSween has released the team's 2017 fall schedule. The Great Danes will compete in five tournaments including a home tournament at the Albany Country Club versus local rival, Siena. "I'm very excited about the tournaments we have committed to for the upcoming Fall season. Of my past four seasons in this program, this schedule is definitely the most competitive to start the year off. Competing in a Big Ten tournament at Rutgers, two Ivy League events at Dartmouth and Yale, and an event hosted by a two-times conference champion, Delaware will be a difficult test to begin the season, but it will also be a great warm-up for the Spring season as well," head coach Cashman-McSween. UAlbany will begin its fall season at the Rutgers University Invitational at the Rutgers University Golf Course in Piscataway, NJ. On Saturday, September 9th, the first day of the invitational, the Great Danes will shoot 36 holes, while on the second day, September 10th they will shoot 18. Two weeks later UAlbany will tee-off two 18 hole rounds on September 23rd and 24th at the Dartmouth Women's Golf Invitational at the Hanover Country Club in Hanover, NH. Then on Friday October 6th the Great Danes will travel to the Yale Women's Intercollegiate in New Haven, CT for its only three-day tournament on the schedule. This tournament will consist of three 18 hole rounds at the Course at Yale. The final trip of the fall season will be to Rehoboth Beach, DE on October 21-22nd where UAlbany will compete in the Delaware Lady Blue Hen Invitational at the Rehoboth Country Club. The format of this tournament is 36 holes on day one, with 18 on day two. "We will have a very young line up of four sophomores, one junior and two seniors. I'm looking forward to great things in this upcoming year," said Cashman-McSween.'
