The Penn State men’s golf team is gearing up for its next tournament as they travel to the Chicago Highlands Invitational hosted by Wake Forest. This 54-hole event will take place on Monday and Tuesday at the Chicago Highlands Club, featuring a challenging par-72, 7,490 yard course.
Designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills, the Chicago Highlands Club boasts dramatic elevation changes of over 80 feet and offers stunning views of the Chicago skyline. Its style resembles that of a modernized links course in Scotland, making it a unique and exciting challenge for the participating teams.
The field for the Chicago Highlands Invitational will include 13 teams, six of which are from the Big Ten conference. Penn State will face tough competition from Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, and Rutgers. The tournament also welcomes teams from host Wake Forest, College of Charleston, Duke, Furman, Houston, Missouri, Virginia, and Yale.
Penn State kicked off its 2023-24 season two weeks ago at the Marquette Intercollegiate at Erin Hills. The Nittany Lions had a strong showing, finishing in eighth place as a team. Graduate student Patrick Sheehan led the way for Penn State, securing a sixth-place finish on the individual leaderboard.
Now, the Nittany Lions are ready to take on the challenges of the Chicago Highlands Invitational. The tournament will begin with two rounds on Monday, followed by the third and final round on Tuesday. Penn State’s tee times are scheduled for 8:10-8:50 a.m. ET on Monday.
