The Indiana women's golf program announced its 2023-2024 schedule Thursday morning, per an IU Athletics release. Under second-year head coach Brian May, the Hoosiers will play in 10 regular-season events — evenly halved with five in the fall and spring semesters.
Indiana's season-opener will be at the Purdue Boilermaker Classic at Kampen Golf Course Sept. 4-5. Identical to last season, the Hoosiers will golf in the Badger Invitational at Wisconsin Sept 17-19, the Evie Odom Invitational at Old Dominion University Oct. 6-8, and the Ally Invitational at Mississippi State University Oct. 23-25 to conclude the fall schedule.
"We are excited to get going this fall," May said in Thursday's release. "We have changed some things up in our schedule and will be playing more golf early in the season than in years past. We have a hungry group of players including six new faces. They are extremely competitive and ready to take on the challenge this season."
The spring schedule — which is more spread out than the fall — is set to start on Jan. 16 in Naples, Florida, where Indiana and the University of Louisville will face off in a dual-match. Identical to the 2022-23 schedule last season, the Hoosiers will golf at the FAU Paradise Invitational at Florida Atlantic University Feb. 5-6, 2024, and likewise finish the regular season later on the road at the Lady Buckeye Invitational at Ohio State's Scarlett Course April 13-14.
In between FAU and Ohio State, Indiana will play at the University of Houston in the Houston ICON Invitational Feb 26-27 and the Florida State Match-Up at Florida State University March 13-14. Louisville, Florida State and Ohio State are the lone tournaments in January, March and April, respectively, on Indiana's schedule. Indiana won't host in the regular season.
The Big Ten Championships will be from April 19-21 — the weekend following the Lady Buckeye Invitational — at the Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre De Grace, Maryland. Though the location for the NCAA Regionals May 6-8 is yet to be determined, the NCAA Finals will be held at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California from May 14-22.
The Hoosiers will return senior Dominika Burdová and junior Beatriz Junqueira. Six new golfers are on this year's roster, including sophomore transfers and sisters Chloe and Faith Johnson from Evansville, Indiana. The Hoosiers' full 2023-24 golf schedule can be found online here.
