Canisius Kicks off Spring Season at PGA Village
The Canisius College golf team gets back to action this weekend when the Golden Griffins take part in the Homewood Suites/Siena Invitational at The Dye Course at PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
The course is named in honor of famed golf course designer Pete Dye. The course features pine straw rough, vast coquina waste bunkers and grass-based bunkers. A links-style course
that weaves by the 100-acre 'Big Mamu' Wetlands, the Dye Course offers
pure Florida surroundings, with hints of design from the older British
Isles' courses for flavor.
The Griffs have been in Florida all week as part of their Spring Break trip.
This will be the team's first action since taking part in The Connecticut Cup Oct. 10-11, 2011 in Ellington, Conn.
