"Club golf has allowed me to stay competitive in golf throughout my college career, while also allowing me time to focus on my academics and other interests in my life. It has allowed me to experience competitive golf in a freer and more dynamic/flexible way than a NCAA college team would. My teammates that I have become friends with through club golf will be friends for a lifetime."
Grew up in Ithaca NY, went to a small town high school playing baseball, soccer, and basketball. Picked up golf as a hobby in 2016 and what was a passion is now and obsession. I go to Ithaca College and my favorite golfer is Phil Mickelson.
The Northeast Region was one of the first NCCGA teams founded in 2009 and currently encompasses the state of New York. SUNY College at Cortland had a long running streak of regional championships including both Spring & Fall of 2014, 2015, and 2016. Niagara University took over the region in Spring 2017, representing the Northeast at the National Championship in Hot Springs, AR and in Fall 2017 at Paiute in Vegas. The Northeast also features one of the NCCGA’s all women’s teams at RPI. The Northeast Region now joins New England, North, Northern New England, and Northwest regions as a member of Zone #1.
