HUNTSVILLE – Looking to bounce back, the Sam Houston State men’s golf team hits the road for the Trinity Forest Invitational in Dallas, Texas, on Sept. 23-25.

The field for the three-day tournament includes host SMU, Abilene Christian, Ball State, Baylor, College of Charleston, Oral Roberts, Rice, UTSA, Florida, Little Rock, New Mexico and North Texas.

Trinity Forest Golf Club resembles many of the great old courses of the Northeast and Great Britain, featuring a links-style course on a rolling meadow with tall native grasses and dramatic bunkering and green complexes.

The team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw (Coore & Crenshaw, Inc.) designed both the championship golf course, the short course and the nine-hole "Horse Course". The design of Trinity Forest honors classic golf courses with traditional, strategic golf and great artistry as the guiding philosophy.

Trinity Forest will become the future home of the PGA Tour's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, as well as annually host NCAA invitational tournament and additional high-profile professional and amateur events.
