COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Just three more rounds remain in the fall season for the Tennessee Tech men's golf team, as the Golden Eagles round out the first half of its 2015-16 campaign at the A-State Fall Beach Classic from Sunday to Tuesday.

The three-day event will feature 18 holes on each day with play being held at the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club in Gulf Shores, Ala. Hosted by Arkansas State, the tournament will take place on the 7,185-yard, par 72 Cypress-Marsh course.

Eleven teams make up the field for the week, including two other Ohio Valley Conference teams. Here is a look at the participating teams:

"We're looking to rebound a little from last week's event," head coach Polk Brown said. "The guys are excited to get down to Gulf Shores and get going. It's a beautiful place and a great golf course and this is an excellent way to close out the fall season. I look forward to them coming out, playing some good golf and giving themselves a chance come Tuesday."
