Golf Programs Return to Southern Wesleyan University

    CENTRAL, SC — Southern Wesleyan University (SWU) is proud to announce the reinstatement of Men's and Women's Golf as NCAA sports, a significant decision that marks a return to the University's commitment to providing comprehensive athletic opportunities for its students.

    In a move to enhance the overall student-athlete experience, SWU is reversing the decision made in 2021 to cut the Men's and Women's Golf programs. The reinstatement demonstrates the University's dedication to fostering a well-rounded and competitive athletic program that aligns with its mission to develop the whole person—intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

    To spearhead this exciting initiative, SWU plans to hire a Head Coach during the upcoming summer. The selected coach will be granted a year to assemble and prepare the teams for competition, focusing on recruiting talented student-athletes and ensuring that all aspects of the program are in place for a successful launch. The Men’s and Women's Golf teams are scheduled to begin official competition in the Fall of 2025.

    "We are thrilled to announce the reinstatement of Men's and Women's Golf at Southern Wesleyan University. This decision underscores our dedication to providing a comprehensive collegiate experience that includes a robust athletic program. We believe that the revival of these programs will not only enhance our student-athletes' academic and athletic journeys but will also contribute to the vibrant and competitive spirit of our University community," said University President, Dr. William Barker.

    Southern Wesleyan University invites alumni, students, and supporters to a celebration on April 6, 2024 from 10:00am-12:00pm. The event will be on campus at the P.B. Wood Driving Range and M.L. Atcheson Putting Green. The celebration will include food, golf skill competitions and more.

    Southern Wesleyan University is a Christ-centered, student-focused, faith-filled community that offers inventive learning experiences. The university endeavors to prepare its students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ. For details about degree programs, go online to swu.edu.
