Golf

Fall of 2012 was our first semester as an official Club team and the first semester as a part of the National Collegiate Club Golf Association. We competed in two tournaments as a part of the NCCGA, coming in fourth out of ten teams in the first tournament, and third out of nine in the second. One of our major goals throughout the season was to beat our rival UVA and Tech. During the second tournament, we succeeded in beating UVA. Two of our members also posted individual scores in the top 8 of the entire field, winning individual trophies for their efforts.

The Club Golf season consists of two semesters, each season ending in the National Championship. Each semester has two official tournaments, where all teams in the Capitol Region attend and compete for points to qualify for Nationals. Occasionally we will also schedule unofficial matches against one or two other colleges.

There are no tryouts to be a part of Club Golf. However, in order to be a member of the eight-person traveling squad, you must qualify by posting four nine hole scores two weeks prior to each tournament. If your total scores are in the top eight, you will compete in the tournament that weekend. For further questions, email the Executive Board at jmuclubgolf@gmail.com.

Membership requirements include paying dues, 5 hours of community service per school year, and attending at least one practice a week. Dues are subject to change, however they will be approximately $100 per semester.

Our practice schedule is very flexible and is tailored to meet the needs of any student. We practice at Lakeview Golf Course, just a few minutes up Port Republic Road. It's a beautiful golf course with views of Massanutten and the surrounding landscape. There are four nine hole tracks to choose from. We have practice every day from Sunday to Thursday; however you are only required to attend one. The practice times are Sunday at 2pm and Monday-Thursday at 5pm.  If you choose to hit the range or play a round with friends at another time that is perfectly fine. However, if you are attempting to qualify for an official tournament you must notify Exec. of your intent and your score.
