Club Golf went into unknown territory in Eau Claire, MI where we played at Indian Lake Hills Golf Club over the weekend of October 6th-7th. The team performed very well bringing home the runner up trophy trailing only the host team, Saginaw Valley State by 8 strokes. Strong rounds on Saturday and Sunday in wet and sloppy conditions put the team within striking distance to take home 1st place but Saginaw Valley State played a bit better both days to secure first place. After this tournament, the team will have one more chance to play well and try and bring home another trophy for the Fall semester at Purgatory Golf Club in the NCCGA Regional Tournament #2! Go Dawgs!
Butler Club Golf has played in one tournament so far last weekend at Harrison Hills Country Club in Attica, IN! Performance was up and down for the two days but overall we played well! This upcoming weekend, we are headed to Indian Lake Hills Golf Club in Eau Claire, MI to take on a few teams from Michigan and see how we rank up against some of these fellow clubs! After that, Club Golf will play in one more NCCGA tournament at Purgatory Golf Club the weekend of October 27th and 28th in Noblesville, IN to wrap up our season.
This semester has been one of growth for the club and we could not be more excited to see how much more we can grow and hopefully begin to take on some of the best clubs in Indiana!
Butler Club Golf sits in second place as a team after day one at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex. The Kampen Course, which plays host to Big Ten Golf Championships, proved to be a tough test for the Bulldogs. John Milner set the pace for Butler in the first round carding a 9-over 81. He currently sits in a tie for fourth. The other four scores for the Dawgs on day one included three rounds in the 80s and one round in the 90s. The University of Notre Dame’s A team leads the tournament by 19 shots after day 1. The Kampen course only conceded two rounds in the 70s all day. With temperatures getting a little warmer on Sunday, and one round under the belt, Butler looks to make a final round run for the top spot in this year’s final regional tournament.
Due to cold Indiana weather, Butler Club Golf is just now getting out on the course to compete against fellow club golf teams from Indiana schools! We have all been itching to get out there and play some golf! Good luck to everyone playing this weekend at the Birck Boilermaker golf complex at Purdue University! Represent us well! #GoDawgs
