Greetings from the Valley City State University Golf Program. The Golf Program is excited to continue on the success of the Fall 2013 season with an equally exciting Spring 2014 campaign! Highlights from the fall include the men’s team winning the Mystic Open in Mandan, N.D. while placing second at four other tournaments. Shane Ost and Jake Richels also took home an individual title during the season. The women golfers combined for five top 10 finishes individually. Last year, the women’s golf team received the NAIA Scholar Team Award ranking 2nd in the nation for all NAIA sports for the 2012-2013 season. It is our goal to continue this success well past the spring, we have recruited some high quality golfers that will help us compete for a spot at our national tournament.
In order to meet these expectations of building a national qualifying golf team we need your help. It is important for us to develop an active booster club (Viking Country Club). The existence of the Viking Country Club will provide needed support to supplement our budget; providing the golf program with practice equipment, increase scholarship opportunities, enhance recruiting, and provide a travel budget to allow for spring golf tournaments. Being located in the northern region, the golf season can be very short. A winter/spring golf trip is crucial to player performance and the recruitment of future student-athletes.
Attached below is a Viking Country Club membership form. By joining, your tax deductible donation will support us in building a nationally competitive program. For your gift, you will receive online recognition on our website. Also the individual with the largest donation will have their namesake used for our next tournament.
Thank you for your consideration.
With Viking Pride,
Head Golf Coach
