Tournament set for March 17-19 at Seminole Legacy Golf Club

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (March 16, 2023) – After opening the week in North Carolina, the ETSU women’s golf team has made the trek to the Sunshine State as the Buccaneers are set to play in the Florida State Match Up, which will be held March 17-19 at the Seminole Legacy Golf Club in Tallahassee, Fla. 


This marks the 10th annual Florida State Match Up, while it’s the third year it will be held at the Seminole Legacy Golf Club. Oregon won the 2022 title with a score of 3-under-par 861 – the only team in the field to post a score below par. Florida State’s Amelia Williamson earned medalist honors as she registered a score of 7-under-par 209 to win by six shots. 

The Seminole Legacy Golf Club was ranked No. 15 on the Top 30 Golf Courses in Florida earlier this month. The course is par-72 and will play 6,255 yards this weekend. 

This weekend’s field features Florida State, Kentucky, Kent State, Purdue, Oklahoma, Tulane, Notre Dame, Mercer, ETSU, Coastal Carolina, Augusta and Daytona State. Three teams are ranked in the top-50 of the Golfstat Rankings – No. 15 Florida State, No. 21 Kentucky and No. 35 Purdue – while six are in the top-60. 

The Florida State Match-Up Tournament is a very unique event and the first one of its kind in NCAA Women's Golf.  The 12 teams will tee off in twosomes for the first two rounds and then in a final round shotgun in threesomes. The twosomes will consist of the partner teams playing together and for this year the partners are as follows: The Match-Up portion of the tournament will be determined by taking the best four scores from the partners (which is a total of 10 players) and the worst score to make the Match Up team total. At the end of the tournament, the teams with the lowest score will win the Match Up. The tournament will also be crowning an individual champion along with a team champion. 


The Blue & Gold wrapped up competition Tuesday afternoon at the River Landing Classic in Wallace, N.C., where Sophie Bert (Deurle, Belgium) made her spring debut with a fifth-place finish in the Tarheel State. Bert posted a 5-over-par 221 for her second top-five finish of the 2022-23 season. Bert led the 67-player field in par-4 scoring this week in North Carolina where she generated an average of 4.07. Overall, Bert tallied eight birdies over the two-day, 54-hole tournament – the second-most in the field.
