Men’s golf coach Roy Edwards announced that CU’s new fall invitational tournament has been named in honor of Mark Simpson (Rec’83), the longtime CU coach who passed away in 2005 after battling cancer.

The first Mark Simpson Colorado Invitational will be Sept. 27-28 at Erie’s Colorado National Golf Club, the Buffs’ home course. It’s the first intercollegiate tournament that the CU men will host in Colorado since the 1993 Fox Acres Invitational at Red Feather Lakes.

Colorado-based teams scheduled to take part are CU, Colorado State, Denver, Air Force and Northern Colorado.
