DCCC to have new golf team
Davidson County Community College
THOMASVILLE — Davidson County Community College’s Storm Athletics program is expanding with the addition of men’s and women’s golf teams starting this fall.
With the successes of the basketball and volleyball teams, DCCC athletics is setting high expectations with the goal of competing against high-level teams and eventually qualifying for the national tournament.
“We’re excited to be expanding our athletics program to include men’s and women’s golf,” Athletics Director Kenneth Kirk said. “DCCC is excited to offer local and graduating high school golfers across North Carolina the chance to continue playing on a collegiate level with scholarship opportunities.”
The golf teams will train at Winding Creek Golf Course in Thomasville. As a member of the National Junior College Athletics Association, the new program will play as a Division II team in Region 10.
Head coach Adam Buie is a Davidson County native who has been a college golf coach for the past eight years: two years as an assistant coach and six as a head coach.
“To be able to do it and coach here in my home county at a school where I took classes is great,” Buie said. “I can already say we are going to surprise some people in year one. Most people will not expect much in terms of competitiveness and results, but with the players we have signed and the players I have that are interested, we will be able to hang with most of these teams.”
Previously, Buie was on the coaching staff at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, West Alabama, Lyon College and Tusculum. He has been part of 23 winning teams and 22 individual wins.
“I know these players are going to work hard and are just as excited as I am to get out there and play,” Buie said.
The teams will host upcoming events in September or October as well as March. The public is invited to cheer the DCCC Storm golf players. The team’s fall and spring schedules will be posted on the athletics page of the DCCC website.
