Northwood University has announced that it has selected the Binks Forest Golf Club to serve as its home course for the 2012-13 golf season.
The Sun Conference school, located in West Palm Beach, is part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
“We’re very excited to have a challenging course like Binks as a home course,” said Brandon Miller, Northwood’s head coach for the past three seasons. “I think the course design lends a level of difficulty that will give us a clear advantage.”
Northwood University anticipates a strong season led by All-American First Teamer Brett McCurdy Jr., and Dorothy Gloeckrer, an All-Conference Academic winner. Both will provide senior leadership to the team.
Last season the women’s team finished eighth overall at the NAIA Championships conducted in Greenville, Tennessee. The men’s team placed 24th at its men’s championship in Salem, Ore., with McCurdy medalling with individual honors.
“We’re looking forward to hosting some great college golf,” said Wheeler Stewart, Binks Forest Golf Club’s head golf professional. “There are many talented players competing in that conference, and it will be a pleasure to be hosting events.”
The Binks Forest Golf Club is located at 400 Binks Forest Drive in Wellington. For more information about the club and its services, visit its web site at www.binksforestgc.com.
