College teams accept Bermuda event invite

Busy month: March will be jam-packed with golf this year, with the Bermuda Open at Port Royal just one of four events taking place on the Island.

Eight colleges from the United States are sending golf teams to the Island in March to compete in the Bermuda Collegiate Invitational tournament.

The event, part of the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s plan to increase sports tourism to the Island, is scheduled to take place at Port Royal and Rosewood Tucker’s Point on March 23 and 24. However, with the Bermuda Open also scheduled to be played at Port Royal from March 23 to 26, it seems more likely the college event will be held elsewhere.

The eight Division Three colleges who have accepted the invitation to play in the tournament are: Berry, LaGrange, Piedmont, Hampden Sydney, Roanoke, Randolph Macon, Shenandoah, and Greensboro.

March is shaping up to be the Island’s busiest golf month of the year. Along with the new college tournament and the Bermuda Open, the month begins with the Bermuda Match Play Championship on March 3, at Mid Ocean Club, and finishes with the Grey Goose World Par 3 National Championship at Turtle Hill Golf Club.
