OHSAA sets golf tournament sites

Apr. 11—COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced the host courses and dates for the girls and boys golf state tournaments in October, which include two new venues. NorthStar Golf Club in Sunbury will continue to host a state tournament, while Firestone Country Club in Akron and NCR Country Club in Kettering will both host two state tournaments for the first time.

All three venues are under contract for only the 2024 state tournaments. The Ohio State University Golf Club, which has hosted the OHSAA golf state tournaments since 1929 except during renovation years, informed the OHSAA that they are declining the opportunity to host the state tournaments this fall.

In addition, the OHSAA has announced that schools can begin the 2024 golf regular season on Monday, July 29, instead of the previously announced start date of August 1.
