Competing in the State of Utah for the first time in the history of the tournament, Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club will be the site of the Summit League’s Men’s Golf Championship hosted by Southern Utah University. The collegiate men’s golf event will be held April 26 – 27, 2010, with the winning college team advancing to the NCAA Regional Tournament. The Summit League is in its 28th year as an NCAA Division I athletics conference.
The ten Summit League institutions include defending champions Oral Roberts University of Tulsa; Centenary College of Louisiana; IPFW, Indiana University-Purdue University of Fort Wayne; IUPUI, Indiana-Purdue University of Indianapolis; UMKC, University of Missouri of Kansas City; North Dakota State University; Oakland University, Rochester, MI; South Dakota State University; Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University.
“Entrada will provide a great test of golf for our championship,” says Richard Church, Men’s Golf Coach for Southern Utah University. He further adds that, “The golf course conditions are always excellent, and the design of the course presents a real challenge. The lava holes at Entrada are extremely unique and force golfers to be very accurate with their tee shots.”
“The members and staff at Entrada are honored that the Johnny Miller Signature Golf Course at Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club has been selected as the site of the first Summit League Championship in the State of Utah” states Phillip Martin, General Manager, “And,” he adds “we are pleased to serve as hosts for the teams who will be staying at The Inn at Entrada, our on-site resort.”
The Summit League was originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities, later known as the Mid-Continent Conference. In its third year of rebranding following its 25th anniversary, the name was changed to the Summit League to reflect a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all league student athletes.
