Club golf is the perfect opportunity to play competitive golf in college without having the same time commitment as varsity golf. Through club golf you will meet lifelong friends and enjoy competing against many cool people all across the country.
Finance major looking to pursue a career in real estate after graduation. Joined DePaul Club Golf in Fall 2017 and will coordinate the Great Lakes Tournaments with great pride during the 2019 season!
At one point the Great Lakes Region featured teams from across the Midwest such as Notre Dame, Purdue, and Wisconsin. After the Fall of 2015 the Great Lakes split apart due to growth in the NCCGA across the country. The Great Lakes Region now features schools exclusively in Central and Northern Illinois. Since the Spring of 2015 each semester features one tournament in Central Illinois, with the other taking place in the Chicagoland area. Illinois State won the region four semesters in a row from the Spring of 2015 to the Fall of 2016, that run included an Individual National Championship title from Austin Havens in the Fall of 2015 (TPC San Antonio). In the Spring of 2016 the Great Lakes Region sent 17 players to the National Championship at Glade Springs; ISU and DePaul both qualified along with Bradley’s Judson Bro as an individual. The Great Lakes Region feeds into Zone #3 for Nationals Qualifying, along with the Capitol, Central, Indiana, Mountain and Ohio Valley Regions. In the spring of 2018, DePaul made an appearance in St. Louis at the National Championship hosted by Norwood Hills CC. In the NIT, Bradley sent three individuals to compete as Judson Bro was the low man for them. DePaul and Illinois represented the Great Lakes region in Myrtle Beach as they both competed for the Fall 2018 National Championship shooting team scores of 800 & 817 respectively. Both teams will look to return to the National Championship this spring. Illinois St. took the region title this past spring and made a trip to Indiana along with DePaul to represent the Great Lakes region. The two teams will continue to battle in the fall with hopes for return trips to the National Championship.
