HADDONFIELD, N.J. –
The Villanova golf team will finish its 2022 campaign on Sunday, taking on other local schools at the City 6 Invitational, hosted at Tavistock Country Club in New Jersey.
“We really enjoy being a part of the City 6 tradition,” head coach James Wilkes said. “It’s a great way to wrap up the fall, a fun shootout on a beautiful course and lots of camaraderie among the city teams.”
The Wildcats are one of four teams in the field, with La Salle and St. Joe’s as the other visitors and Drexel serving as host.
Last season’s City 6 Invitational saw Drexel emerge victorious at 3-over, while Villanova (+12) and St. Joe’s (+15) finished in second and third with Temple and La Salle ending fourth and fifth respectively.
The format is 18 holes on the one day of the event, with competition beginning at 12 p.m. from Haddonfield. Live scoring will be available on Golf Genius.
Full field (Current Golfweek Team Ranking): Drexel (144), Villanova (252), La Salle (264), St. Joe’s (287)
This year’s event will take place at Tavistock Country Club, with Drexel serving as host of the tournament.
Founded in 1921, the 18-hole, par-72, 6,908-yard course was originally designed by architect Alex Findlay, who is considered one of the fathers of American golf.
