JMU’s Club Golf team competes in the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA) and plays in 2-3 NCCGA tournaments per semester. Our region is comprised with the likes of UVA, Virginia Tech, VMI, Longwood, Roanoke College, and other Virginia universities. Recent success has included bids to the NCCGA National Championship in New Jersey and South Carolina as well as winning a regional tournament in Williamsburg, VA.

Tryouts to make the team are held every fall, usually the first weekend of September. It is a two day tryout, with the first cut coming after the Saturday round and the final roster being chosen after the second day of tryouts. Once on the team, each member must qualify to travel to the regional and national tournaments. This qualifying process includes playing 18 holes when the player is able to and then playing in a mandatory 18 hole, tournament style, qualifying round. The top 6 players will travel to the tournament and then 2 other players are chosen by exec members as “captain picks”. For those who do not qualify for tournaments throughout the semesters, “in-house” weekend tournaments are held at the team’s home course.

Team size varies with each year. On average, there are 30-35 members on the team who all play, practice, and socialize together. Outside of golf, the team hosts tailgates for football games, takes weekend paintball trips, and plan beach trips during the summer. In order to be considered a full time member, each person must pay dues, complete 5 hours of community service within the academic year, and attend monthly meetings. Dues vary with each semester, but range from $150 to $200.

Our home course is Lakeview Golf Course, located approximately 10 minutes from JMU’s campus. With 36 holes, it is never a problem making a tee time and playing time averages under 4 hours. In regards to practice, there are no mandatory practice times, but members of the team are usually found playing and practicing together throughout the week. As mentioned, weekend tournaments are held at Lakeview where the team can stay in the competitive mindset while still having fun. These tournaments include different formats such as skins, Wolf, Ryder Cup, and others.

If any questions arise, feel free to contact one of the exec members listed above and they will be more than happy to answer any questions. Our website is also listed below.
