STANFORD, Calif. – The Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray unveiled Stanford's 2021-22 men's golf schedule on Thursday. The slate begins with The Fighting Illini Invitational on the weekend of Sept. 17-19 and will conclude in late May (May 27-June 1) with the NCAA Championships at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale.
"We are looking forward to playing on some of the best courses in the country against the nation's best teams this season," Ray said. "Testing our team in every facet of the game is what we are trying to achieve in choosing the tournaments we have been fortunate to have been invited to. We can't wait to get out there and compete knowing the regular season is great preparation for a deep championship run in the spring."
The annual Goodwin will be hosted at Stanford Golf Course March 24-26. This year's edition will be a chance for friends and family of Coach Wally Goodwin to gather at the tournament named in his honor. Goodwin passed away in mid-July.
