Led by three returning all-conference performers from 2016 (Jack Myers, Collyn Shippos, and Antonio Triana) the Panthers will open the season on April 8 at the Columbia-Greene Tournament before coming home to host the Panther Invitational at Elm Tree Golf Course on April 9, the earliest date that Tompkins Cortland has hosted the annual tournament.

The 2017 schedule includes nine tournaments during the regular season before the College hosts the NJCAA Region III Championship May 8-9 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Cornell University. The year ends with the NJCAA Division III National Championship tournament June 5-9 at the Chautauqua Golf Course. Both Shippos and Triana qualified for nationals last year, and the pair look to bring the whole team with them in 2017.
