COLLEGE STATION, Tex. - Texas A&M revealed its 2019-20 women’s golf schedule, a slate that features some of the top courses in North America, several premier events in college golf and two trips to Mexico.
The Aggies open the season in Toledo, Ohio, at Inverness Club, a nine-time major championship host that’s slated to host the 2021 Solheim Cup, participating in the Inverness Women’s Collegiate (Sept. 16-17). The season continues with the Schooner Fall Classic (Sept. 27-29), which benefits the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, at Belmar Golf Club in Norman, Okla.
The Aggies have two tournaments scheduled in the state of Texas, starting with the Jim West Challenge in San Marcos (Oct. 20-21), held at Kissing Tree Golf Club. In the spring, A&M returns to the ICON Invitational (Feb. 24-25), played at The Woodlands Country Club – Tournament Course, which has hosted the PGA Tour’s Houston Open, the LPGA’s Samsung World Championship and the Champions Tour’s Insperity Invitational.
A&M ends its fall and begins its spring south of the border, playing in the Battle at the Beach and the Guadalajara Invitational. The Battle at the Beach (Nov. 1-3) takes place in San José del Cabo at Club Campestre San Jose. The Aggies start the spring season at the Guadalajara International Invitational (Feb. 16-18) at Guadalajara Country Club—which hosted the LPGA’s Lorena Ochoa Invitational. A strong 15-team field, which includes the Mexican National team, highlights the event.
The Aggies compete at two tournaments hosted by SEC rivals in the lead-up to the SEC Championship (April 15-19).

The Aggies conclude the regular season at The Grove Cup (April 7-8), hosted by Ole Miss.
