Jacksonville welcomes 13 teams to Amelia National Golf Club in Fernandina Beach, Fla., as it hosts the JU Amelia Island Collegiate Monday and Tuesday.

The 14-team field: Cincinnati, Daytona State, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Illinois State, Jacksonville, Jacksonville State, James Madison, Kennesaw State, North Florida, Stetson, Winthrop, Wofford and Xavier.

The teams will play two rounds in the tournament.

“I am excited to get the spring season underway,” JU head coach Jen Borocz said. “It is nice to have an event in February so we can see where we stand and will have a better idea of what we need to work on as a team. It looks as if we are going to have good weather for the event so that is good news for a lot of the teams.”
