Men's Golf Closes Fall Campaign With City Six Event Saturday

PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania men's golf team will close out the fall portion of its 2016-17 schedule this Saturday with the City 6 Championship.

This year’s event will be played at the par-70 Huntingdon Valley Country Club. The course measures 6,876 yards in length, and all golfers will play 18 holes. Penn's players will tee off with players from Temple and Villanova from 11:20 a.m. to noon. 

Penn was the winner of the inaugural edition of this event, in 2014; Saint Joseph's won the team title last year, but then-Penn senior tied for individual medalist honors with a 71.

Penn's lineup on Saturday will include senior Dane Walton; juniors Amay Poria and Carter Thompson; sophomore Josh Goldenberg; and freshman Daniel Furman.

"Our team looks forward to this event each fall since it’s a chance to spend time with our Philly brothers in a slightly informal setting compared to most of our tournaments," said head coach Bob Heintz. "That said, we are showing up with winning on our mind! We took home the first City Six title two years ago at our home track, the Militia Hill Course at Philadelphia Cricket Club, and we want the trophy back. The guys have had three weeks to catch up on schoolwork and address some fundamentals after our intense four-week stretch of tournaments, so I expect that we will be fresh and excited to play on Saturday."
