The North Region will have a different feel to it this Fall season. The University of Wisconsin-Madison club golf team has traditionally dominated the region since its inception in 2014. However, UW-Madison will have a brand new team 8-man club this fall, and will begin the season with a target on their backs as 8 other schools look to dethrone them as Regional Champions.
UW-Madison is looking to defend its fourth consecutive club golf regional title this fall. The new Madison team is led by freshman club president Andrew Bryce. UW-Milwaukee and Oshkosh will bring a strong A and B team, as well as the addition of Marquette as they return with an A and B team after taking a semester off from club golf. Michigan Tech, UW-Platteville, UW-Whitewater, and UW-Stevens Point round out the field.
A notable player to keep an eye on in the North Region is UW-Green Bay’s ace Tom Boockmeier. Tom is an ex-varsity player looking to make some noise in club golf before graduating and has hopes to lead this team into contention.
This will be a region to keep your eyes on as the season kicks off this weekend. Some top story lines will be how UW-Madison can defend their titles, how Boockmeier begins his NCCGA career, and we will see if any team can dethrone Madison for the first time ever.
