PLYMOUTH, IN – The top community college golfers from across the United States will be coming to Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth next week for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Men's Division II Golf Championship.

Over 140 of the nation's best junior college golfers from a total of 43 teams will be competing in the event. Practice rounds start on Sunday, May 18th and continue through Monday. Round one action begins on Tuesday, May 20th at 7:00 a.m. and will conclude on Friday with round four.

With two beautiful 18 hole championship courses, Swan Lake Resort golf pro Chad Hutsell said pairing with Ancilla College is a great partnership. "Swan Lake Resort is pleased and honored to host the NJCAA National championship. Working with Ancilla College to bring the championship to Plymouth and our resort has been a real pleasure. As Tournament director and for the entire staff at Swan Lake Resort, I am pleased to welcome the NJCAA Golf Championship participants and spectators. We are ready to showcase our beautiful resort and provide a fun and challenging, yet memorable experience to all contestants," Hutsell remarked.

Ancilla College athletic director, Gene Reese, commented on the importance of this event for Ancilla and the community: "What tremendous national exposure for Ancilla College. It is a great honor and opportunity to host a national junior college tournament. Plus we have an ideal venue with Swan Lake. We are excited for May 20th to arrive. This is huge! The best junior college golfers from all over the United States will be at Swan Lake next week. Perhaps we will see a future PGA player like Bubba Watson. If you love golf, I recommend that you to take the time and watch this tournament."

Charger golf coach Marc Hayden added, "It is an honor to be the host for the NJCAA DII Golf Championship. I look forward to an exciting week. The opportunity to work with a PGA Pro such as Chad Hutsell is a great experience."

The public is invited to watch all four rounds. A four day spectator pass is available for $40.00, while single day passes are $15.00. Tickets are available at Swan Lake Resort, starting on the first round of play on Tuesday.

Notes pertaining to NJCAA Division II Golf National Championships

-This event will be contested on the 7112 Yard, Par 72 layout of the Black Course from Tuesday, May 20th – Friday, May 23rd. 

-Swan Lake Resort was also the host facility for this event in 2012 where 128 Players represented 42 schools from 17 states. 

-For the 2014 event, we have approx. 140 players representing 43 schools from 18 states.  This includes at least one player representing 21 of the Top 25 teams in the latest National Poll.  This should be an extremely strong field. 

-Another addition to this year’s field is that Ancilla College (Donaldson, IN) will be competing in the team event.  4th Year Coach Marc Hayden has been working towards this goal of his team playing in the National Championship on their home course.  This goal will be realized when the Chargers tee it up on Tuesday morning.

Swan Lake Resort is excited to announce that we will be opening the Silver Course tomorrow, April 2nd. I promise this is not an April Fools Joke. It won't look like the attached picture yet, but it will be good to get out there. We will be allowing carts, depending on rain tomorrow, in the rough only. We will also be opening the driving range tomorrow as well. We will be using the tee on the Southeast side of the range to protect the main two tees until we start to see some growth on them. Check out our website at www.swanlakeresort.com/golf for rate information or call 574-936-9798 for a tee time. We are excited to get things going for 2014 and we cannot wait to have you join us.
