The Alabama High School Athletic Association opened postseason play in boys and girls golf in recent days with sectional tournaments and now moves to the second round of action with sub-state tournaments scheduled Monday and Tuesday, May 3-4.
Several teams in the Lagniappe coverage area qualified for sub-state play. Winners in sub-state tournaments will advance to the state championships, scheduled Monday and Tuesday, May 10-11, at Magnolia Grove Golf Course, Mobile’s stop along the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
In most classifications, the top four teams as well as the top four individual players not members of qualifying teams earn spots in the sub-state tournaments. State tournament qualifiers will be the top two teams and the top two individual players not on a qualifying team. In some cases, players earn a spot in the next tournament as an individual, even though their team qualified to move on, because they were not part of the five-person team (boys) or four-person team (girls) designated by the head coach as a team member. In determining team scores, the top four scores (boys) and top three scores (girls) are tallied for the team total.
The sectional and sub-state tournaments are 18-hole events, while the state tournament will feature 36 holes of play.
Here are the South sub-state tournament sites and dates:
GIRLS: Class 1A-3A: Arrowhead Country Club, Montgomery, May 3; Class 4A-5A: Sylacauga Country Club, May 3; Class 6A: Cider Ridge Golf Club, Oxford, May 4; Class 7A: Rock Creek Golf Club, Fairhope, May 3.
