JCC has won a sixth consecutive bid to host the National Junior College Athletic Association men’s Division 3 golf championships at Chautauqua Golf Club for another three years.
JCC has sponsored the 72-hole tournament with the JCC Faculty Student Association at Chautauqua since 2000. This year’s tournament, which will be held June 3-6, is the third year of the 2012-2014 contract.
“I am thrilled that the NJCAA championship events committee approved our proposal,” said Greg Fish, JCC FSA executive director and tournament director. “The fact that we will host it for another three years is a sign of continued confidence in the leadership of JCC and Chautauqua Golf Club to coordinate such a significant event.”
“Hosting this prestigious national tournament for the past 15 years has been a source of great pride for our entire staff at the Chautauqua Golf Club,” said Jack Voelker, the club’s general manager. “The opportunity to continue our strong partnership with JCC and host for another three years is an honor. We look forward to welcoming the visiting players, coaches, and families as they add their experiences to this summer’s celebration of the Chautauqua Golf Club’s 100-year history.”
Tournament qualifiers have come from colleges in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. The tournament traditionally draws nearly 100 golfers and more than 300 spectators, including coaches.
The tournament is open to all spectators.
