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.

Inner city schools like ours often don’t have the space to build large facilities to attract and retain students. The golf club has been that selling point/retention tool at a fraction of the cost. Our students,faculty,staff and admissions department thanks you for that!
