2017 NAC Men's Golf Championship Tee's Off on October 15

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts athletics and the Berkshire Hills Country Club (Pittsfield, Mass.) will play host to the 2017 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Men's Golf Championship Sunday and Monday, October 15 and 16.

The 36-hole event will begin Sunday at 11:30 a.m., and will conclude Monday after all rounds have been completed. Tee times for Monday's final round will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Nine teams will vie for the 2017 conference championship that was captured by Husson for the second-consecutive season. The Eagles held the title for eight-straight seasons before Salem State earned the championship in 2014.
