The Royal Oaks Intercollegiate is played at the 7,068-yard Royal Oaks Country Club and is a par-71 course. Rounds begin at 8:15 a.m. Monday with a shotgun start for rounds one and two. The final round will be played on Tuesday with a staggered shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. The tournament will be played in “Maxwell” style format, as all five players from each team with be paired together.

Teams competing over the two days include ranked No. 6 Southern Methodist, No. 11 Baylor, and No. 40 Charlotte. Fellow Big Ten members Michigan and Nebraska will also be in Dallas.

Iowa finished eighth last year at a different course due to flooding. Seniors Benton Weinberg and Alex Schaake led the Hawkeyes with scores of +5 and +6.
