MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College men's golf team reaffirmed its position as one of Division II's top programs in the nation today, earning the No. 17 and No. 16 spots  in both the Golf Stat Relative Rankings and the Golf World/Nike Golf Division II College Coaches' Poll respectively. In both metrics, the Bobcats have shown significant progress, moving up from No. 20 in previous reports.

Among other top-25 teams in the competitive Peach Belt Conference were  USC Aiken (No. 4 in Relative Rankings, No. 5 in Coaches' Poll), Armstrong Atlantic State University (No. 8, No. 7), Columbus State University (No. 9, No. 13) and Flagler College (No. 15, No. 15).
