STARKVILLE – Mississippi State head women’s golf coach Charlie Ewing announced the 2024 spring schedule on Monday. The schedule features four unique road tests for the Bulldogs, pairing them with some of the strongest teams in the country.
The Bulldogs begin their march through the spring season at the Palos Verdes Golf Club in California for the Therese Hession Regional Challenge. This will mark the first time that State has competed in the challenge in its 28-year existence. The 16-team field features 12 top 25 ranked teams, with seven entering the spring ranked in the top 10.
The schedule will continue into the Bahamas for the Dawgs, as they will play in the Nexus Collegiate in Nassau. The ladies will be making their first appearance in the Nexus Collegiate. However, this will not be Mississippi State’s first time appearing in the tournament, as the men’s team appeared in the 2022 edition.
Up next on the spring slate will be the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate. Mississippi State will be making their fifth appearance in the tournament, their first since 2018. The tournament, originating from Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, will be broadcast on the Golf Channel. Out of the 16 teams, State will be joining 10 others entering as top 25 teams.
State concludes their spring schedule at the Old Barnwell Golf Club for two days of match play. The tournament in Aiken, S.C. will mark the lone time the Dawgs compete in match play during the regular season.
Postseason play will begin on April 12 with the SEC Championship. The six days of competition will be hosted at the Pelican Golf Club in Tampa, Fla. NCAA action will begin with regionals May 6-8, and will conclude with the NCAA Championship originating from Omni La Costa Resort & Spa May 17-22.
