TEEING OFF: The GW golf team heads to its first stroke play event of the spring season with the Colleton River Collegiate hosted by Michigan State, March 12-13 in Bluffton, S.C. Teams will play 36 holes on Monday beginning at 9 a.m. and 18 holes on Tuesday starting at 8:30 a.m.

COLLETON RIVER CLUB: Located along the Atlantic Ocean in Bluffton, the Colleton River Plantation Club is a member-owned golf community that is surrounded on three sides by water. The only one of its kind in the southeast United States, the Colleton River Pete Dye Course, which opened in 1998, is a stunning links-type course that has unobstructed views of Port Royal Sound and the Atlantic Ocean from 11 of its 18 holes. Stretching more than 7,300 yards, it plays through dense Lowcountry forest as well as open scenic wetlands -- and common to many of Dye's designs, it features small, undulating greens that are well-protected by pot bunkers.

In addition to the hosting of the U.S. Junior Amateur, Colleton River's Pete Dye Course has hosted eight U.S.G.A. qualifiers since 2005, including three U.S. Opens, four U.S. Amateurs and one U.S. Senior Open.

THE FIELD (Golfstat ranking): Cincinnati (103), Eastern Michigan (121), George Washington (185), Iowa State (80), Miami (64), Michigan State (50), Oakland (132), Penn State (41), Rutgers (147), Valparaiso (274), Wisconsin (86), Winthrop (223)

THE LINEUP: GW sends its full roster into competition.


LAST TIME OUT: In its first event of the spring season, GW responded from an opening-round defeat to win its next two matches and claim fifth place at the Atlantic 10 Match Play Championship, Feb. 19-20 at Weston Hills Country Club.

THROW BACK: Junior Logan Lowe has experience at the venue of the Colleton River Collegiate, having played there in the 2015 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, where he lost a close match to the eventual champion.
