The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) has four teams ranked in the top-25 of the Golf World Poll, led by No. 7 Columbus State University, followed by No. 9 USC Aiken and No. 20 Armstrong. Taking top honors in the Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll is Nova Southeastern University with Barry University holding on to the No. 2 spot.
