Golf ClubPenn Golf Club:

The Penn Club Golf Team was formed to promote the game across the university. Our players are dedicated to competing on a local, regional and national level. Our club organizes practices and practice rounds at various courses and driving ranges in the area.  In addition, we actively compete in both the fall and spring seasons, with a larger number of tournaments scheduled in the fall. Our focus is the National tournament hosted by the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (www.nccga.org). Nonetheless, we organize matches against other collegiate teams independent of this league. We are a very welcoming group, committed to promoting the game in a friendly, competitive environment.

University of Pennsylvania Club Golf Team Ties for Fourth Place at National Tournament 2009

The University of Pennsylvania Club Golf Team secured a spot in the National Collegiate Club Golf Association National Tournament by placing tied third in the Eastern Conference Final. On November 15th, the Quakers traveled to Fredericksburg, Virginia to play the acclaimed Cannon Ridge Golf Course and compete for the National trophy. After first-round play drew to a close, the Quakers were poised for a third place finish with a combined score of 392. In this round, Ben Molever led the Quakers with the 7th-lowest round of the day. Hopes were high, and players prepared to gun for Coastal Carolina and Miami—the first round leaders that had just inched ahead of the Quaker team.

On Sunday, windy conditions made scoring particularly difficult on this lengthy course that spreads out over the historic Virginia countryside. With unusually strong gusts and scattered rain, the Quakers did well to come home with a second day total of 407 to finish at 799. This was good enough for tied-fourth. Despite these conditions, Zachary Sachs did well both days to make the All-conference team, which contains the eight low individuals for the tournament. Taking the tournament in stride, the Penn Club Golf team is already preparing for next year’s season and looking to improve on their performance.
