Albany -- Some of the best high school golf teams in the state were out on the course at Doublegate Sunday, getting ready for the GISA state tournament Monday.
Many of the sixteen teams in the tournament trying to figure out the course on the final day of practice before the 18-hole championship begins.
Defending state champ Deerfield-Windsor was among the schools practicing Sunday.
The Knights golf team has five state titles to its credit, but have never won back-to-back years.
Deerfield coach Gordy Gruhl says teeing-it-up in Albany at Doublegate should be a big help to his players.
"It's certainly an advantage," says Gruhl. "It should be an advantage to us, anyway. We still got to go out and play the course, but there shouldn't be any surprises for us out there, which is one thing we get to eliminate. Hopefully we'll go out and play a good round tomorrow, and have some good results."
The one day tournament begins Monday at 10am.
