SANFORD, Florida - Seminole State golf is on the road this week, well, sort of. Stetson University is hosting their Hatter Classic, but it is being played at Alaqua Country Club, a very familiar course for the Raiders.
Not a typical Florida course, Alaqua is a regular stop on the PGA Senior Tour and, just last week, was the host site for the Symetra Tour’s IOA Classic, which was won by Marta Sanz Barrio with a score of 13-under par 200 over 54 holes.
The field for the 2019 Hatter Classic includes McNeese State, the U.S. Naval Academy, Daytona State, Barry University, Lynn University, the Savannah College of Art & Design.
The tournament will have a shotgun start on both Monday and Tuesday, October 7-8, at 8:30 a.m. The teams are scheduled to play 36 holes on Monday with a final 18 holes on Tuesday. A practice round will be held on Sunday afternoon. Live scoring will be available via golfstat.
