2012 ACAA Champions, the Holland Hurricanes

The Holland College varsity golf teams will begin their open tryouts at Fox Meadow Golf Club in Stratford on Friday, August 30th as they prepare for another season as members of the Atlantic Collegiate Athletics Association.

The qualifier will stretch over eight rounds of golf where the men’s team will then reduce the number of players down to the top fifteen. These players will train as members of the varsity Hurricanes over the following weeks until the coaching staff selects ten players to represent the Hurricanes as two separate, five player teams at the two ACAA events held on September 21st and September 29th.

Here is the full Hurricanes qualifying schedule. For anyone interested in registering to sign up the cost is $200 (includes taxes) and can contact Daniel at dccudmore@hollandcollege.com
